Zimbra. Zimbra was created by “A. Benjamin,” the pseudonym of the Spanish creator José Canellas Casals (Amiel, Armando, Jaime Bazán, Black (III), Carlos and Marcos Bon, Bronkos, César, Thalma Klan, JuditMario, Nick, Red Circle, Rin-Tin-Tin (I), Sam, Sankro, Spaceman (II), Titán (II), Toby, Capitán Velez, Mack Wan, Fernando Zabal, Khun Zivan), and Valentin Castanys, and appeared in the comic strip “Zimbra y los Dragones Humanos” (Pelayos, 1938).

Ogar is the greatest man of science in the fallen country of Gambia, conquered by many barbarian tribes until it is but a shadow of its former glories. Ogar proposes to bring Gambia back to power through resuscitating Zimbra, greatest of Gambia’s former emperors. Ogar puts an artificial heart in Zimbra’s body and revives him. Adventures with the dragon-men, winged humans, and atomic-powered vehicles follow.
