Astonishing Tales #10
Issue(s): Astonishing Tales #10
It's a cool concept (as far as i know, it isn't swiped from anywhere) but it's not all that engaging. Decent art, though. Barry Smith inked by Sal Buscema, of all things.
The story began in Astonishing Tales #8, which i don't have (i only have the Dr. Doom half of the issue from my Super-Villain Team-Up Essentials reprint), and issue #9 was a fill-in by Stan Lee and John Buscema (as far as fill-ins go, that sounds like one that no one would complain about). Beginning with issue #9, the cover for this series says "Ka-Zar: Lord of the Hidden Jungle" in big letters with "Astonishing Tales featuring" in smaller letters above it. Issue #9 had some Lorna the Jungle Queen reprints; this is the first issue with a full-length Ka-Zar story.
I was mainly interested in seeing the development of Bobbi Morse, but all i can tell you is that in this issue she has blond hair instead of brown.

Smith inked by Sal Buscema kinda looks like Jack Abel here.
Bobbi's hair color...my guess is it's the same "instant hair color in a can" Jessica Drew would eventually use. She's been a blonde ever since so that's all I can say about it.
