Sonja and Tarzan attempt to stage a rescue mission but make a startling discovery when seeking aid from The Traveller.
WHAT HAPPENED: Tarzan and Sonja end up in Hyrkania searching for Duul, Tarzan’s daughter-in-law, and answers. Sonja takes Tarzan to meet with The Traveller who is in a shocking state. More information about Duul is revealed and then a fight breaks out between Duul, Sonja, and Tarzan regarding the fate of his daughter-in-law. Sonja battles Duul and his swordswoman alone to give Tarzan time to chase after Boxer. After the fight with Boxer, Tarzan is backed into a corner.
WHAT MARY HAS TO SAY: There is a lot of exposition in this issue that I am hesitant to cover for fear of spoiling the issues, especially the twists. All I really want to say is that Simone continues to craft a highly nuanced, action-packed, and engaging story.
Tarzan and Sonja continue to play off of each other very well without one dwarfing the other. The only downside is that, because this is a mini-series, each issue is packed full of so much exposition it makes it hard to cover in a review.
Geovani’s art continues to be out of this world.
