Kamandi: The Last Boy on Earth!, No. 3 (1973)
The Thing That Grew on the Moon!
This time on the Couch: Mike, James, and Shée develop Stockholm Syndrome reading Kamandi: The Last Boy on Earth no. 3! Well, maybe not Shée, who starts this episode with prepared remarks in re: primates and how much they suck. For the rest of us, it's Planet of the Apes meets golden-haired twinks when warring apes battle over who gets to make Kamandi their smooth-legged slave. What starts as a good old-fashioned dystopian interspecies brawl becomes a poignant meditation on toxic relationships after Kamandi starts to sympathize with the raging gorilla who was literally trying to cave his skull in, like, four minutes earlier. Gotta learn to love yourself first, Kamandi. Plus, Joe Rogan finally sits on the Couch, more Kirby praise, and a request for new sign-off suggestions. Oh, and start exercising. That's not a joke, just get yourself together. You want your heart to hold old long enough to see a Kamandi movie, work those lats.
