Early twentieth-century British colonialists have rebuilt the slave trade around the intelligent apes that raised Tarzan in the jungles of Africa. Now Tarzan and his adoptive brother Caesar fight back to free the apes-but discover that man and ape will have to unite if the surface world is to survive.

    My fingers are crossed that the narrative is cracked a little wider open and we get a more honest and accurate depiction of what colonialism did to these countries. The emotional pathos is here and it is fantastic but the thematic grounding risks straying away from an honest discussion. Then again, honesty might hurt the brand. Read Full Review

    Though there was some pretty convoluted stuff to some degree in the opening installment and this issue takes a quick readjustment with how it kicks off here with Tarzan in London, there are some really neat things going on with this blending of properties that's appealing. I like the concept and I'm enjoying the way it's unfolding while offering up potential areas to explore more with religion, man's place in the world, and more. Dagnino's doing some great stuff with the period costumes and the locales as well as making for some really good ape sequences. The flashback material almost, in a weird way, felt like it came out of a 1970's Marvel comic book with its colors and design. The action sequences are strong and I love some of the panel layouts, especially with the third movie sequence that we get in the forbidden zone. I'm excited to see what's next in this series as it can make for some fun twists ahead. Read Full Review

    The art is excellent. I can't believe what a dick Tarzan's brother is and why Tarzan has tolerated slavery for as long as he has.
