This is it! The final showdown between everyone’s favorite ape-man and his arch-nemesis, Russian super-spy Nicholas Rokoff. For their arena, the two men have the ruins of Opar, the lost city of gold in the heart of Africa. Rokoff takes the upper hand by enslaving the primitive denizens of Opar, but it’s going to take a lot more than an army of depraved man-beasts to stop our hero from rescuing his true love, Jane. There’s only one problem: does Jane love the ape-man back?

It looks like Jen’s finally got everything she wants – her crusade against her murderous Uncles is over and done with and she’s successfully fended off attacks by everyone from war profiteers to waffle salesmen. There’s just one tiny fly in the ointment: Detective Elaine Pruitt, Homicide. Jennifer Blood killed her partner, but didn’t quite manage to kill her. That was a mistake.

Ever since she took the throne of Sogoria, Sonja’s journey has been leading to something greater still. Her small kingdom threw off the shackles of an empire only to see terrorism, revolt, and finally the brutality of Thulsa Doom. Starved, shocked, and near desperation, Sonja’s people now openly revolt against her rule. She turns to the only wealthy Baron to levy taxes and feed the people, but he has a better idea — attack the empire! Open assault on the Emoran Empire is suicide, but to Sonja war is a form of art. Through the skillful use of deception, assassination, and manipulation, she plunges the fiefdoms of Emora into confusion and chaos, while feeding her tiny kingdom off Emoran crops. This is only the first act, her real designs are on the crown itself, and the reformation of the corrupt Empire, with her atop the throne as Empress Sonja!
