Kirk Marston (Garokk the Petrified Man's second body)

Post by loki » Tue Apr 05, 2016 2:19 pm

Listing here says

MARSTON, KIRK
KZ2 20
X 115-FB

However, the Appendix's Master List and Comics.org both list him as in KZ2 15 through 19 (and not 20). I don't have the relevant series to enable me to confirm this, but I figured it was worth raising, so someone else can check.

Just glancing through KZ2 1-20 I noticed a number of other missing appearances of Ka-zar's supporting cast. Dr Wilma Calvin, Tandy Snow, Bernard Kloss, and Tongah all have further appearances as well. I am re-reading these issues right now. If you wish, I will let you know what I find out.

I have just finished reading the Ka-zar chronology from KZ2 1 (1-9) to X 115. Here are the additions and/or corrections I have came up with.

CALVIN, DR. WILMA +/-
AT 16-FB
{AT 12-FB}
AT 12
AT 13
AT 15
AT 16
AT 17
AT 20
*KZ2 4

KLOSS, BERNARD +/-
*SAVT 11
*KZ2 14
*KZ2 15
*KZ2 16
*KZ2 17
*KZ2 18
*KZ2 19
KZ2 20
X 115-FB


MARSTON, KIRK +/-
*KZ2 15
*KZ2 16
*KZ2 17
*KZ2 18
*KZ2 19
KZ2 20-BTS
X 115-FB

One correction to the Kirk Marston chronology. He does not actually appear in KZ2 20 but I feel it rates a BTS appearance

SEESHA +/-
SAVT 11
*KZ2 16
*KZ2 17
*KZ2 19
KZ2 20
X 114
X 115
X 116-BTS

SNOW, TANDY +/-
*KZ2 14
*KZ2 15
*KZ2 16
*KZ2 17
*KZ2 18
*KZ2 19
KZ2 20
X 115-FB
X 115
M/FAN 1-FB


TONGAH +/-
AT 3
AT 4
AT 5
AT 6
AT 7
*KZ2 2
KZ2 4
*KZ2 5
SAVT 11
*KZ2 12
KZ2 13
KZ2 14
*KZ2 15
*KZ2 16
*KZ2 17
*KZ2 18
*KZ2 19
KZ2 20
X 115-FB
X 114
X 115
M/TIO@ 6
M/FAN 2
KZSAV 5-FB

One correction in the Tongah chronology is moving SAVT 11 to right before KZ2 12. This matches the Tongah chronology with the Ka-zar chronology. These two have to match because Tongah never appears without Ka-zar present.

This is all I came up with. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks, Brad.

Well, since you offered. :)

Marston was a Ka-Zar supporting character, and was killed in X 115-FB when Garokk started using him as his second body. Right?

Correct.

Marston was a radiologist brought to the Savage Land by Ka-zar to investigate the vibranium mountain, which Ka-zar felt might be causing madness in the inhabitants of the Savage Land. Zaladane captured Marston and performed the ritual on him which changed him into the second Garokk.
