Synopsis for "Tarzan of the Apes"

This story is reprinted from Tarzan #207.

While searching for her father in the jungles of Africa, a woman listens to the tale about a wild ape man, from her guide.

FLASHBACK: Lord John Clayton, 4th Earl of Greystoke and Lady Alice leave Dover, England in 1888 to sail on a matter of business to Freeport, in North Africa. But their ship is over-run by pirates and they are taken prisoner. A mutiny erupts aboard the ship, and the Claytons are abandoned on the shores of the Congo.

Lord Clayton tries to eke out a life for his pregnant wife and himself. He builds a tree-house for them far away from the jungle animals. Lady Alice eventually gives birth to her son, John. Before the year is out, Alice contracts a rare jungle virus, becomes delusional and eventually passes away.

A gorilla named Kerchak observes these invaders to his jungle and investigates the Clayton cabin. He bursts into the cabin and kills Lord Greystoke. Another gorilla named Kala, having lost her own child, decides to adopt the human infant.

Kala raises baby John Clayton and he grows up to become the hairless lord of the jungle known as Tarzan.

Synopsis for "Tarzan of the Apes"

This story is reprinted from Tarzan #210.

After Jane Porter, her father and William Clayton, become marooned on Africa's coast, Tarzan rescues them from the perils of the jungle and saves Jane from a great ape. Later, the French navy come to the island and try to rescue the Porter party, but the French Lieutenant is caught by the Gomangani Tribe. However, Tarzan quickly rescues him. Thankful for the rescue, the Lieutenant becomes Tarzan's good friend and teaches him French. He also translates Tarzan's family journals that were found in his parent's cabin. The Porter's leave the island unannounced, and ultimately, Tarzan travels to America to find Jane, who he has fallen in love with. Tarzan (now clothed and able to speak) finally meets Jane at her home in Baltimore, and they renew their acquaintance. He learns the bitter news that she has become engaged to William Clayton. Meanwhile, clues from his parent's journals have enabled the Lieutenant to prove Tarzan's true identity. His English name is "John Clayton, Lord Greystoke," William's cousin. He sends a cablegram to America with the news. Tarzan reads D'Arnot's message, but does not share it with Jane. Instead of claiming his inheritance, he chooses to conceal and renounce his heritage for the sake of Jane's happiness.

Notes
