KA-ZAR (1974) (#1-20) (MARVEL) #1 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Ka-Zar (1974) #1
Premiere Issue. Guest-starring Shanna, the She-Devil. "Return to the Savage Land" is written by Mike Friedrich and drawn by Paul Reinman and Mike Royer. This issue features the first meeting of Ka-Zar and Shanna and the start of their longstanding romantic relationship. Our story begins as Ka-Zar parachutes into the Savage Land after hitching a ride on a S.H.I.E.L.D. transport. Having just spent much time in New York City (see Astonishing Tales for details), Ka-Zar and Zabu, his pet sabertooth, are anxious for the verdant jungles of this wondrous land tucked away in the Antarctic.

However, rest and relaxation are not theirs to be had as first Ka-Zar must battle a giant python, then a shark and finally deadly pterodactyls. The last menace was sent his way by Malgato, the Red Wizard, who has teamed with Ka-Zar's old enemy Maa-Gor, the Man-Ape, to try to end the Lord of the Jungle's reign. After retelling the origins of the Savage Land, Malgato settles into the work of bringing Ka-Zar to himself. Once he does lure Ka-Zar in, Malgato traps our hero and lets Maa-Gor soften him up with a hard-oaken club. Ka-Zar escapes briefly and gives the Man-Ape some of his own medicine. But before long, Ka-Zar is subdued and returned to Malgato's castle. There he first lays eyes on the beautiful Shanna and hears Malgato's amazing rant: for the Savage Land to live, Ka-Zar and Shanna must die!
