Tarzan has long been the protector of his jungle stronghold, but this time the fight has to be taken to his enemy's territory, deep in the heart of London. Half a world away and nearly a century later, Sheena is battling foes of her own when she is mysteriously swept through time and space to 1930's Africa, leaving her own land unprotected. Will these two Lords of the Jungle find enough common ground to join forces? Or will the resulting culture clash lead to mutual destruction?

    Where has this book been all my life? I went through junior high reading Tarzan tales and read Sheena's adventures in high school. Combining these two protectors of the jungle into one tale is fantastic and the creators have done a bang up job in telling it. Superior jungle action. Highest possible recommendation.

    Bechko's tale here is a solid enough introduction to Sheena, though more about her capabilities and intent rather than background. With her thrown into the past it makes for a fun way to connect with Tarzan, which will likely happen next issue if not then the third issue. Tarzan is naturally underserved here and that left me a little frustrated as I kind of wanted to hit the ground running with both of them. The book is very, very, action heavy and Castro executes that solidly throughout with some excellent flow to events and great placement of the camera combined with really nice layouts. The final page is the big one for me as I'm looking forward to seeing how Tarzan is brought to life here as it looks like there's a real sense of power and primal that's often lacking in interpretations. I'm definitely curious to see where this goes and whether they can reignite my interest in characters that are very difficult to work with when it comes to today's audiences. Read Full Review

    Overall, it was an okay comic. I can't say that I found it particularly riveting, but it was interesting enough to keep my attention. Without giving away any spoilers, the ending did hint at a larger, sinister plot afoot, but other than that I didn't think the storyline or plot stood out particularly in any way. As I mentioned, fans of general action and pulp-style comics are likely to enjoy Lords of the Jungle, but if you're looking for a story with more complexity or a more involved plot, this probably isn't for you.

    Lords Of The Jungle may be notable as the first official team-up between Tarzan and Sheena. Unfortunately, that's the only notable thing about this book. Save perhaps how notably disappointing it is on every single creative front. Read Full Review
