Synopsis for "Lorna the Jungle Queen: Agu the Giant!"

This story is a reprint of the comic
Lorna the Jungle Queen #1.

While travelling through the jungle, Lorna finds a safe tree to sleep in for the night unaware that some creature is watching her. The creature -- Agu the giant ape -- reveals itself to her, frightening Lorna, but the ape suddenly saves her life when she is attacked by a large python, and the giant ape disappears as suddenly as it appeared. Lorna theorizes that although Agu is feared in the jungle, he only attacks those who attack him first. Lorna soon spots a fire nearby and goes to investigate, coming across warriors of the Itibi tribe. She learns that they are on the hunt for the creature that set fire to their village, Agu the giant.

She learns that the Itibi attacked Agu when the giant ape came close to their village to drink water from a river, and his counter attack send a burning branch onto their huts creating the inferno. The warriors then storm off to find Agu, ignoring Lorna's pleas that Agu will only attack if provoked. Lorna follows after them in order to stop them before anyone gets killed.

The Itibi warriors come across Agu as the massive ape is sleeping. When the leader of the warriors throws a spear at the sleeping primate, Lorna sweeps in and knocks it out of the way. Agu is awoken by the noise, and Lorna shows them that the ape is harmless, allowing it to pick her up and place her on a tree branch before walking off into the jungle again.
