Crossover Covers: Lords of the Jungle


The jungle queen Sheena travels back in time and teams up with Tarzan. Although this version of Tarzan is based on Burroughs’ novels, Cheetah from the movies inexplicably appears. Win Scott Eckert adds, “Tarzan (from September 1936), Sheena (from 2016), and another character from the future are ‘protectors’ of their domains with the power to open ‘doorways’ to other times or realms. While certainly it has been posited in other non-ERB tales that Tarzan is somehow drawn to ‘gates’ which lead to other dimensions and otherwise-hidden cities (see Malibu’s Love, Lies, and the Lost City), it has never been proposed that Tarzan does this consciously and intentionally.” Therefore, I am considering this an alternate universe story.

This crossover is one of hundreds covered in my book Crossovers Expanded: A Secret Chronology of the World Volume 3, which will be published by Meteor House! All three volumes are AUTHORIZED companions to Win Scott Eckert's Crossovers: A Secret Chronology of the World Volumes 1 and 2!
