The DC Comics Jungle
Korak, Son of Tarzan also migrated from Gold Key from 1972 to 1976.
Kamandi, the Last Boy on Earth, inhabited a post-Planet of the Apes world of sentient animals from 1972 to 1978.
Another sword-and-sorcery hero, The Warlord (seen here in cosplay), debuted in an anthology series called 1st Issue Special in 1975 before going on to a successful run in his own title (1976-1988). He was an American pilot who accidentally flew into a hole at the North Pole and ended up in Pellucidar...um, I mean Skartaris, where he rescued the scantily clad Princess Deja Thoris...um, I mean Princess Tara.
Kong the Untamed, a blond prettyboy caveman (top photo), ran for 5 issues in 1975.
Two backup sword and sorcery hero in The Warlord eventually spun off into their own titles: Arak Son of Thunder, left (who changed from Conan clone to Mohawk Indian) from 1981 to 1985, and Arion, Lord of Atlantis, from 1982 to 1985.
Pop quiz: how many of the 14 Lords of the Jungle have a "k" sound in their names?
Answer: 7. I guess something about "k" spells "jungle."
