Dynamite Unites Tarzan and Sheena in LORDS OF THE JUNGLE!

Edgar Rice Burroughs’ original jungle hero
Tarzan joins the comic industry’s first leading lady, Sheena, for the
first time ever! Dynamite Entertainment, known for bold, modern
interpretations of classic pulp characters, bring together wilderness
royalty in Lords of the Jungle, a thrilling miniseries slated to debut on March 16, 2016. Written by Corinna Bechko (Aliens/VampirellaStar Wars: LegacyPlanet of the Apes) with interior art by Roberto Castro, Lords of the Jungle features two covers for its first issue, by series artist Castro and industry legend Alex Ross respectively.

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?
 
“When
writing characters like these, it’s always best to be mindful of their
history. If they don’t feel like the same people, what’s the point? The
flip side of that is remembering that they need to feel fresh and
relevant,” says zoologist-turned-comics writer Corinna Bechko. “The
Sheena we’re introducing here is a bit younger than some of the
iterations there have been over the years, but she can definitely take
care of herself. She’s not someone you’d want to be on the wrong side of
in a fight.”
Comic book fans are encouraged to reserve copies of Lords of the Jungle with
their local comic book retailers. The first-ever Tarzan / Sheena
crossover will also be available for individual customer purchase
through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Dynamite Digital,
iVerse, and Dark Horse Digital.
