Countdown to Hallow's Eve Day 30: BOMBU THE WITCH MAN
The tiki-faced, mullet-haired, scaly-skinned, creature you see above is BOMBU, the Witch Man. He is today's Kirby Monster. He is probably one of the more powerful of these monsters, even though he doesn't look like it--weighing in at a mere 5'6"-5'10" and about 160 lbs. He's just not that smart or careful of his own power...read on:
Take note, fair reader, the being who appears on the cover of JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY #60 looks nothing like the creature known as BOMBU. Puzzling, no? And if he's not Bombu, then who the heck is he? Well then that is our contest: NAME THAT KIRBY MONSTER! The first responder will get an illustration of that monster (whatever you name him) by me as your prize!
The immortal being known as Bombu settled his spaceship in the Amazon to gather information for his invasion of the planet. Bombu soon insinuated himself into a group of natives, becoming their “witch doctor” after providing examples of his powerful “magic”.
Two men from the outside world crash their plane in the jungle and become captives of Bombu’s tribe. These men were brought before Bombu who reveals his plans for our world and demonstrates his powers to them. The witch man summons forth a powerful storm and is soon struck down by a lightning bolt from his very storm. The two men then learn that the hideous mask the invader “wore” was actually his REAL FACE!!!!
