Quote from Wikipedia.com:
"...Ka-Zar the Great, who first appeared in the pulp magazine Ka-Zar #1 (Oct. 1936) from Manvis Publishing, one of many magazine companies owned by Martin Goodman. Writer-artist Ben Thompson adapted the pulp story "King of Fang and Claw" by Bob Byrd for Goodman's first comic book, Marvel Comics #1 (Oct. 1939)"
More details about Ka-Zar's pre-Marvel days can be found on Don Markstein's Toonopedia.
