So far, DC's Kamandi Challenge --- a bizarre experiment in Exquisite Corpse storytelling about the Last Boy on Earth and his journey across Jack Kirby's map of a post-apocalyptic earth --- has been a hoot. The mix of high-concept action and the genuine uncertainty of having no idea where this story is going is something that you don't often get in comics, and as much as I thought it was a weird idea, it's always the first thing I read on the Wednesdays where it hits shelves.

But sadly, the third issue has dashed my hopes for Kamandi's trip to a post-apocalyptic San Diego Comic-Con. Instead, Jimmy Palmiotti, Amanda Conner, and Paul Mounts are going in a bit of a different direction. Check out a preview below!

Now, Kamandi is embraced by the God Watchers as a holy messenger! Can he keep up this charade long enough to survive? Or will the truth lead to the end of the last boy on earth?
