You know, this story actually wasn't bad. I figured I'd check this one out when it finally went on sale and I'm glad I did. Batman is taken out of his element (i.e. the urban jungle) and dumped into the heart of the real jungle where he must work with Tarzan to finish a case. There Batman is tested as the law of jungle differs from those of Gotham and survival is a much colder order. As Tarzan explains, if one is to survive in his jungle, one has to kill. But Batman doesn't kill and refuses too, yet can he allow Tarzan not to kill despite Tarzan being Lord of the Jungle after all. Interesting story, not bad, not long. Art work is decent enough. Wouldn't have thought about getting it had I not seen the other reviews but certainly glad I did as it's a decent story with a nice change of angle.

It seems like a no-brainer, doesn't it? Batman and Tarzan, both kings of their respective jungles (one urban the other primal), both royaly in their own way, and both orphaned at a young age (one by a murderous street thug, the other by a savage jungle beast). It seemed only a matter of time before they were forced together by fate, crime, and, in this case, a clever story by writer Ron Marz.
This inter-company (DARK HORSE and DC) crossover is an "Elseworlds" type tale featuring alternate takes on Two-Face and Catwoman, and takes readers from the rooftops of Gotham to the mysterious ancient cities of Tarzan's Africa in a tale that is more a Tarzan story than a Batman tale. That very fact is what makes this story refreshing. It would've been all too easy to have Tarzan visit Gotham for the majority of the tale but, instead, Batman is taken out of his element and dropped in the middle of a land where his brand of justice is out of place.
Fantastic art by Croatian artist Igor Kordey and colors by Chris Chuckry assist in making this a fun tale for fans of both characters.
