I was struck by one of the covers to Red Sonja #13 and went looking in my e-mail for the review copy Dynamite sent. In one of the e-mails, I saw three names, Red Sonja, Tarzan and Gail Simone. To be honest, I just can't get into Red Sonja, as much as I want to. She's this unfortunate paradox of a strong female character that is defined almost entirely by a chain mail bikini. She's also had the good fortune to be written by Gail Simone, who doesn't take writing female protagonists lightly. So when I saw this press release in my search results, I was intrigued. I'm gonna give it a shot. I would suggest you keep an open mind with it, just like I will.
Dark Horse has sent us a preview of Tarzan on the Planet of the Apes #1. Their latest use of the king of the apes puts him into the world where apes rule man. Does it work as a story, much less as a concept? Before we dive in, I need to share one bit of information. Dark Horse is giving a 10% discount to retailers that order more than 10 copies of the first issue of Tarzan on the Planet of the Apes. Now, on with our review, and be warned that despite my best efforts, I may have spoiled a few things, but I hope not too much.
