Go on an extraordinary adventure with Captain Tripp Vaguely! You will be hurled into immediate action as the Captain and his most trusted compatriot, Ghost-Tongue the Anasazi, trek deep into the jungles of darkest Africa to capture a legendary beast with cosmically-sighted goggles and a portable, gear-churned arsenal! These are just the tip of the extraordinary iceberg when the American bravado and Victorian gadgetry of Captain Tripp Vaguely is in play! Fast-paced action and dry wit ensue as the duo confronts both a race of humanoid arachnids and the Captain's arch-nemesis, the wicked and phonetic Doctor von Skaar! You'll laugh. You'll groan. You'll break a sweat!
