Fourteen years have passed since Tar-Zaan, Jane, and baby Jack escaped the clutches of Rokoff, Alexis, and La just off the western coast of equatorial Africa. In response to their traumatic experiences with the kidnappings, Tar-Zaan agrees under Jane’s suggestion to keep his life amongst the apes a secret to his son. To the dismay of Jane, Jack has inherited his father’s love for the jungle. When an Africa exhibit comes to visit London and Akut mysteriously shows up along with it, Tar-Zaan can no longer hide his secret. Jack is kidnapped and with the help of his new friend Meriem he may be able to find his parents again. But Alexis may have other plans… Where will Jack’s trials and tribulations take him? What is Alexis up to? And will the Greystoke dynasty ever be reunited again? Tune into Freshly Squeezed Pulp’s The Son of Tar-Zaan to find out!
When we last left Tar-Zaan, our jungle hero had just gotten married to Jane Porter (who’s from Wisconsin, by the way). While the two settle down at the Greystoke Estate back in England and have a son named Jack, it isn’t long before Alexis, Clayton, and Rokoff are up to their old shenanigans. Soon, Tar-Zaan, Jane, and Jack are all kidnapped by their enemies and end up (you guessed it) back on the exact same coast of western equatorial Africa! Will Tar-Zaan find his son and Jane? Will our villains get what is coming to them? And how does High Priestess La fit into this scheme? Tune in to Freshly Squeezed Pulp’s The Adventures of Tar-Zaan to find out!
