Lord of the Jungle (2011)

Lord of the Jungle #15
Tarzan wants to get the heck out of Opar but must return to face a creature that has killed a friend. That beast, “The White Shadow,” takes on our ape-man in a battle royale. Rated mature, this is a solid issue that will entertain most readers.

Lord of the Jungle #14
The end of this story arc is really good. Tarzan takes on Rokoff, a man who has laid claim to all the riches in fabled Opar. He also fights many ape-like creatures. This one is clearly for action fans. Rated mature.

Lord of the Jungle #13
Wow! This issue is a lot of fun! Writer Arvid Nelson and artist Roberto Castro have teamed up to create a compelling story that’s a joy to look at. The reader breezes through the pages in part because of all the white-knuckled action. The penultimate issue of a six-part story arc, this issue is rated mature.

Lord of the Jungle #12
This issue is dubbed “The Treasure Vaults of Opar!” The Return of the Jungle Lord. Part 4 of 6. This is storytelling at its best! Jane and Lord Greystoke search for a way to elude their captors while Tarzan finds unimaginable treasure in the lost city of Opar. Theirs is lots of action and a compelling storyline. Writer Arvid Nelson and artist Roberto Castro have put together a top-notch tale that’s a lot of fun to read. Rated mature.

Lord of the Jungle #11
This is Tarzan at his finest. He helps the Waziri counterattack when Belgian troops destroy their village. In part three of a six-story arc, the reader is treated to Tarzan in action as well as to another story where he is taken prisoner. If this issue is any indication, the next one will be fantastic! Rated mature.

Lord of the Jungle #10
This issue, titled “Back to the Primitive,” is a lot of fun. Tarzan returns to his native Africa seeking a certain village. Rated mature.

Lord of the Jungle #9
This issue is excellent. It shows Tarzan out of his element aboard a cruise ship in 1909, where he tries to help nab a criminal. It ends with a cliffhanger, leaving the reader wanting to know what’s next. The artwork is also good. This title is rated mature.
