Dynamite is launching a new Sheena comic book the way all sorts of canny folk are doing these days. With a 25-cent zero issue, for August 2nd. Though odds are there will be copies floating around San Diego Comic-Con.
Written by Marguerite Bennett (Batwoman, Animosity) alongside Christina Trujillo, finalist for Galaxy Press's Writers of the Future and drawn by Moritat (Hellblazer, Teen Titans), everyone's favorite Queen of the Jungle swings back into action on August 2nd when issue #0 lands in stores.
Sheena, Queen of the Jungle, was the first female character in comics to carry her own dedicated series beginning in 1937. Created by industry legends Will Eisner and S. M. "Jerry" Iger, this groundbreaking character saw 167 issues over the span of two decades. In the new series, Sheena proves her prowess as the guardian of the jungle as she pursues a mysterious invader that has come to spy on the Amazon's most ancient secrets. Following the path of the trespasser, she encounters a forbidden ruin in which even more deadly dangers lie in wait…
Sheena began her fictional existence as an orphan raised by a shaman in the jungle, perfecting her survival skills and mastering the ability to communicate with animals. Her many adventures brought her into conflict with evil hunters, slave traders, and rampaging wildlife. The character has thrilled audiences in several television and film adaptations, including portrayals by actresses Irish McCalla (1955-1956), Tanya Roberts (1984), and Gena Lee Nolin (2000).
Cover artwork for Sheena #0 spotlights the talents of the Emanuela Lupacchino (Starfire, Supergirl) with limited variant editions including "Sneak Peek" covers from interior artist Moritat, as well as from Ryan Sook (X-Factor, The Spectre) and J. Scott Campbell (The Amazing Spider-Man)!
