SDCC 2022: The Lord of the Jungle Rises with Dan Jurgens
The mighty Lord of the Jungle returns to roar! Dynamite invites fans to swing through the vines and beat their chests in anticipation of a visceral new series starring the one and only Tarzan, written by industry superstar Dan Jurgens!
Created by Edgar Rice Burroughs and introduced in the October 1912 issue of The All-Story Magazine, Tarzan quickly became a cultural icon! Jurgens comes on to help commemorate the 110th Anniversary of this iconic character! But that is not the only anniversary that this first issue will be commemorating.
Alongside artist Benito Gallego, Jurgens will reestablish Tarzan in the eyes of longtime fans and show how badass and entertaining he is to new readers alike. Across the series, the prototypical jungle action hero’s entire life will be traced, from birth to adulthood. A framing device secondary tale weaves between the core story, as an older Tarzan reflects on his life and the changing world around him, reflecting contemporary concerns that continue to this day.
Get to know the legacy of Tarzan, from his aristocratic background and eventual flirtations back with that lifestyle, to his early days raised by the apes, and his fearsome rivalries with man and beast alike. What will become of this man in his savage world?
The series features an all-star cast of cover artist friends and colleagues of Jurgens, including Gary Frank, Lee Weeks, Dan Panosian, and Josh Burns.
Lord of the Jungle #1 is slated for release in November 2022.
