Roy Thomas Presents Sheena Queen Jungle Slipcase Ed Vol 03 (
(W) Roy Thomas (A) Robert Webb, Alex A. Blum
She may still be everyone's favourite yellow-tressed leopard-skin-clad Jungle Jane but, having made her first appearance almost 80 years ago (courtesy of Will Eisner and 'Jerry' Iger in the British mag Wags #1), Sheena, Queen of the Jungle could be forgiven for being somewhat less spritely swinging through the trees righting wrongs and wielding her knife. In 1938, she made it Stateside with her first showing in Jungle Comics #1 where she settled happily in every issue (plus a decade in her own title) until April 1953. There have been other incarnations, of course, but it's this classic material that strikes at the very heart of Good Girl Art! Collects Sheena: Queen of the Jungle issues #11-18 (Spring 1951 to Winter 1952).
