At long last, the Lord of the Jungle finds the fabled treasure-city of Opar. Unfortunately for him, his arch-nemesis Nicholas Rokoff arrives at the exact same time. But a little surprise is in store for both men – turns out Opar isn't exactly a ghost town, and the locals aren't too keen on outsiders! Hot jungle babes, savage beasts, and a mountain of gold await the ape-man in Lord of the Jungle #12: The Treasure Vaults of Opar!

The Spider's art couldn't be more generic they tried.

Lord of the Jungle is a really underappreciated book

Very nice to see these titles! I wish I was still on board with Spider but the art for the first arc spoiled me to where the interior's now just don't do it for me. Great stuff though!

@NightFang: It's bland, undetailed and reminiscent of the dull "bang it together as quick as possible" art you tend to find on comic adaptations of movies. Ivan Rodriguez's art looked much better in Vampirella vs. Dracula so would have to say it stinks of bad digital colouring doing a disservice to the pencils hidden underneath.
