Featuring Ki-Gor, Lord of the Jungle
One of the most popular sub-genres of the classic pulp magazines were those with jungle settings. With the success and popularity of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan stories, editors began clamoring for similar tales featuring jungle heroes. Soon dozens of cheap loin-cloth wearing imitators were popping up everywhere, including a few jungle queens to add spice to the mix. By far the most successful of these Tarzan clones was the blond-haired Ki-Gor, the Jungle Lord whose adventures appeared regularly in the pages of Jungle Stories magazine.
Airship 27 Productions offers up this new collection with three brand new adventures of Ki-Gor and his lovely, red-headed mate, Helene, as they travel into the mysterious, uncharted jungles of Africa. Penned by Aaron Smith, Duane Spurlock and W. Peter Miller, here are a trio of fast-paced tales that have the Jungle Lord discovering a hidden village of Vikings, crossing paths with dinosaurs in a lost valley and battling cannibals to save the life of a benevolent jungle princess. This is the pulse-pounding action and thrill-a-minute adventure fans have come to expect from the classic jungle pulps.
Featuring a stunning cover by painter Bryan Fowler, Jungle Tales Volume 1 kicks off a new series pulp fans are sure to approve of happily. Read with stirring excitement by Paul Curtis.
