Someday My Prince Will Yield

It's common knowledge (at least in more dangerous circles) that wherever Princess Zanda goes, chaos and death usually aren't far behind. But, doesn't this woman ever enjoy down time? Yes and no. What you and I might consider "down time" doesn't necessarily apply to Zanda--not unless you spend it pursuing your latest collection target, which could include the occasional corpse:

T'Challa, the Black Panther, isn't likely to sway either Zanda or any of her fellow collectors with his opinion of them. She is, after all, very successful in her chosen lifestyle. Nor is she lacking in self-confidence in attaining her goals--whether they're rare, priceless artifacts, or more human treasures:

The Panther may already have known the answer to his question at the time he asked it--but since we've read ahead, we can assure him that Zanda does indeed know how to "give." Give orders, that is--as well as ultimatums:

Needless to say that the Panther would end up acquiescing to Zanda's demands--this time. But eventually, he would escape Zanda's clutches, which also failed to close around the prize she'd sought--proof that her reach once again exceeded her grasp.

Hah! I loved Kirby's run on this title! Guess I'm not the only one!

Yes, Jack Kirby was unfairly criticised after his return to Marvel - I love the way he gave everything a shiny sci-fi look.
