Sonja and Tarzan form an uneasy alliance but things may not be as they seem.

What Happened: 

After explaining how Eson Duul is a danger to the both of them, Sonja tries to form an alliance with Tarzan that is quickly rebuffed by the King of the Jungle. He takes off without her, but did any of us think Sonja wouldn’t follow? When Sonja finally does catch up with Tarzan, they find out that this is not the first time they’ve met. They’ve met before so recently that Tarzan still has wounds from their fight. But what took this memory from them?

What Mary Has To Say: 

Both Sonja and Tarzan are longtime loners. They work alone and when they team up with someone else, it’s usually begrudgingly. This time is no different for either of them and that makes for a great interaction. Simone knows both of these characters inside and out and she brings the bullheadedness and confidence out in both of them while maintaining a balance by not placing one over the other. Geovani’s art is really exemplary in this issue. Sonja and Tarzan are both very passionate and expressive characters and Geovani really captures every detail, no matter how minute.
