First up Kamandi:
Kamandi is one of Jack's weaker creations. Dull-witted Kamandi is a closeted homosexual boy that dresses like a ChippendalesTM dancer and inhabits a post-apocalyptic world filled with silly talking animals.
|Talking tigers, how ridiculous!|
Enough of that loser Kamandi, let's move on to one of Kirby's greater creations....
Moon-Boy and his brother Devil Dinosaur!
Moon-boy is the bravest member of a group of humanoids called the "Small Folk", he inhabits a pre-historic Earth in a region known as the "Valley of Flame".
After a rival band of humanoids known as "Killer Folk" left a young dinosaur for dead, the brave Moon-Boy rescued it and brought it back to health. Because it's skin was scorched red by the torches of the Killer-Folk, Moon-Boy named his new dinosaur brother, "Devil". Moon-Boy and Devil became fiercely loyal to each other.
|The Fiercely Loyal Brothers|
Moon-Boy's adventures with Devil are indeed surreal; encounters with Sky Demons (evil aliens), Swarmers (giant army ants) and a mystical old hag count among their numerous nightmare-like experiences in the Valley of Flame.
There are no silly talking tigers in Moon-Boy's world. Kirby makes Moon-Boy's world more dangerous and darker than Kamandi's world; instant death lurks behind every boulder and tree branch in the Valley of Flame.
Unlike the effeminate Kamandi, Moon-Boy and Devil have no time for games, and give as good as they get, little mercy is shown for the enemy.
Moon-Boy's world is primeval to the max and that's why we here at the Kirby Primeval blog recommend it!
Just for Kirby-Kicks here's Jack's original concept sheet for Devil Dinosaur:
