Lord Of The Jungle: Volume 1 (2012)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger
12.30.12

Lord Of The Jungle: Volume 1 (2012) This is a faithful adaptation of Edgar Rice Burrough's first Tarzan novel, Tarzan of the Apes. It begins with Lord Clayton and his wife being stranded off the African Coast by pirates. He makes a cabin in one of the trees and she gives birth to their son. But she gets sick and dies. Soon after this happens they are attacked by the Apes of Tarzan's tribe and the She-Ape, Kala, adopts the human baby as her own. Twenty-one years later we go to an exploration group, which includes Jane and her father. Also there is a Mr. Clayton, who turns out to be Tarzan's cousin. They are looking for lost treasure. They get Tarzan's interest and he protects them from alligators and panthers. And by the end of the book Tarzan is smitten with Jane, and after encountering the French man D'Arnot, learns how to speak and goes to America to be with Jane. But by then she's engaged to his cousin...

One thing I found interesting is that there are these meat-eating ape men that make an appearance and they are said to come from beneath the Earth, so I assume they are Sagoths from Pellucidar. And Jane has an assistant named Esmeralda, a Haitian who is able to figure things out, like Tarzan's name and she's able to speak French and communicate with D'Arnot.

Even if you'd read the original book, watched the television series and other comic adaptations, this version will keep your interest. Highly recommended.
