Kamandi fans, treat yourself to Volume 1 and you won't be disappointed. Thank you, DC, for doing a wonderful job preserving the Kamandi legacy; I eagerly look forward to purchasing Volume 2!
Update (May 2016): With DC Comics' recent announcement of the DC Challenge Kamandi maxiseries ([...]), perhaps they will also consider publishing a Kamandi: The Last Boy on Earth Omnibus Volume 3 to finish the remaining 19 issues of the original series. I would urge Kamandi to contact DC Comics at their context webpage ([...]contact) to lobby them to release an Omnibus Volume 3.
With talking animals.
I found the binding to be good on this edition. I am satisfied with the reprint quality, the colors, the paper cutting. The only drawback as I approach my 50th birthday though is that mostly all I see as I read through the comics is the limitation of the story telling and characterizations. I am simply not a nine or ten year old anymore and so the actual stories do very little for me now. I can still see how the art thrilled me at times though. Jack's Kamandi characters and story settings were always so visually compelling. I know there are some old comic books out there that would still entertain me somewhat. Kamandi though, some forty years later, reads as children's literature and the idea for this series was surely stolen or borrowed from the Planet of the Apes movies. I'm not knocking Jack for borrowing an idea but as an adult it does make Jack Kirby look a little less brilliant. I've read some similar review of adults reading Kirby stories again after several decades so I just wanted to chime in also. I can't fault Mr. Kirby though because the comic books were written as fantasy entertainment for children.
