Ka-Zar the Great, powerful lord of the jungle, was probably better known for his appearances in Marvel comic books. But it all started with the pulps. Manvis Publications, the publishers of Red Circle Magazines, came out with the first issue of Ka-Zar in October 1936. Editor Martin Goodman was the creator, and wrote the stories behind the pseudonym of Bob Byrd. Ka-Zar was very similar to the Edgar Rice Burroughs character of Tarzan, which debuted in 1912. It wasn't the first of the Tarzan clones, and it wouldn't be the last. But the jungle lord had a certain appeal that allowed him to move to Marvel Comics in 1939. The character later appeared in Marvel Mystery Comics and The Human Torch. It's pulp origins, however, were sadly brief. There were only three issues of Ka-Zar to hit the newsstands, the final one being June 1937. Ka-Zar returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
