In the early 90's Africa elephants are being illegally killed for their ivory. In San Francisco, Jane is an activist against the poaching, which infuriates businessman Phoon, who is responsible for a good portion of it. Tarzan is also in the city-and recognizes the scent of the ivory, from an elephant he knew, in a pawn shop. But how are these two in San Franscisco, seemingly the same age as they were in the 1930's? By the potion they had drunk from a witch doctor in Africa during that time. In fact, they are posing as Jane and John Caldwell in order to protect their true identities. Tarzan send up doing back to Africa because he's having intense nightmares/visions, which are beginning to affect his behavior. He almost hurts Jane during a sleep-walking incident. This all ties in with the elephant hunters-and also a certain witch doctor from their past. It all culminates in a lost land and hidden civilization with prehistoric-type creatures and half ape-men.
This is one of the more faithful Tarzan stories that builds upon the original Edgar Rice Burrough's novels. This graphic novel collects the 1992-93 #1-7 Malibu comics issues. Highly recommended.
