“Thun’da” #1 Review — Click to read full article

“Thun’da: King of the Congo,” a Frank Frazetta creation from 1952 published by Magazine Entertainment, unfortunately only had a single issue featuring the fantasy legend. “Thun’da” #1 was a cover to cover Frazetta work of art, but the character quickly succumbed to editorial pacification and cinema deals which excluded him from receiving any compensation, forcing Frazetta to abruptly leave his creation.

“Thun’da” #1, the new revival by Dynamite written by Robert Place Napton with art by Cliff Richards, sadly, does not come close to the expectations set by that issue — the effort is not quite there and the lack of heart is evident.
