Batman/Tarzan: "Nuff Said! In this graphic novel, Bruce Wayne is opening the Thomas and Martha Wayne wing of the Gotham Museum of Natural History. Bruce has financed an expedition into Africa for an Archeologist named Finnegan Dent. The new wing will display items discovered by Dent on his dig. It is also revealed that Bruce will finance yet another of Dent’s trips very soon. Also at the affair is Lord Greystoke. Tarzan came to America to settle business that began in New York and has now concluded in Gotham. Bruce and Tarzan meet, then each go their separate path. Batman goes on patrol and Tarzan back to the hotel. Tarzan feels it necessary to prowl the night himself. Batman and Tarzan discover a thief at the Museum. She is dressed in ceremonial garb that somewhat resembles Selena Kyle’s Catwoman costume. But this Catwoman is no thief; she is Princess Khefretari of the secret African city of Mamnon. It is Finnegan Dent who is the thief, having discovered and plundered Mamnon with the help of hired mercenaries, using Bruce Wayne’s financing. Batman feels responsible, and vows to right the wrongs. Tarzan says that Africa is the Ape-man’s responsibility, and that he will see justice done. They are attacked by mercenaries hired by Dent, who has already set off for Africa. Batman and Tarzan agree to work together, and Batman flies the three to Africa, and a battle worthy of the Caped Crusader and the Lord of the Jungle! This graphic novel has dynamic prose and breath-taking artwork! It presents issues 1 through 4 of a series produced by DC Comics and Dark Horse Comics. It is classic! I give the graphic novel five stars! Quoth the Raven…
