"KAMANDI was Jack's take on PLANET OF THE APES, a movie he'd heard much about about but had not seen. Asked for something to parallel that film, Jack conjured up what was left of Earth after a good, old-fashioned nuclear holocaust and populated the world with a young human protagonist and a lot of people with animal heads." - Mark Evanier KIRBY KING OF COMICS

"Kamandi's world is a premise of hope. It stems from a "Natural" disaster, not an atomic war." - Kirby (KAMANDI #3 letters page response)
