(Ka-Zar: Lord of the Hidden Jungle#15) - Khonsah and chieftain Tongah of the Fall People witnessed the start of the other-dimensional Sheenarian army's invasion of Earth. Tongah ordered Khonsah to return to their village to warn and ready the Fall People for battle while he would go and warn Bernard Kloss and Ka-Zar.
(Ka-Zar: Lord of the Hidden Jungle#15 (fb) - BTS) - Khonsah arrived too late to warn his fellow villagers: the Sheenarians had already attacked. Khonsah could do nothing but watch as most of his people were slaughtered and some like Seesah and Kronak were captured. Khonsah was the only one who managed to escape, quickly fleeing to Tongah and Ka-Zar's side, unaware he was being followed by Sheenarians.
(Ka-Zar: Lord of the Hidden Jungle#15) - Khonsah arrived at Tongah and Ka-Zar's location who were present with their friends Tandy Snow, Kirk Marston and Bernard Kloss. Khonsah quickly told them of the fate that befell the Fall People at the hands of the invaders. He was then incinerated by an energy beam fired by a Sheenarian skyskimmer. A second craft carrying Traikar, commander of the Sheenarian conquest, arrived. The commander came down on a green transport beam, informing them their lives would be spared if they surrendered peacefully. Driven insane by the death of Khonsah and his people, Tongah threw his spear at Traikar, killing him on the spot. It made little difference, because seconds later more Sheenarian forces arrived led by commander Saxtur.
