Sheena: Queen Of The Jungle #0
Written by Marguerite Bennett and Christina Trujillo
Art by Moritat
Colors by Andre Szymanowicz
Letters by Thomas Napolitano
Cover by Emanuela Lupacchino and Fabio Mantovani, J. Scott Campbell and Sabine Rich, Moritat and Andre Szymanowicz, Ryan Sook
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: August 9, 2017
Cover Price: $0.25

Talk about a convoluted history! This character has seen more revisions than the MLA Handbook! In Sheena: Queen of the Jungle #0, we see a modern take on a vintage character. Older than Wonder Woman but just as overtly sexualized for decades, Sheena has been both a powerful role model and a scantily clad vixen. Time after time, people have tried to create the perfect version of this character only to fall short of their goals. Not only have a multitude of comic companies tried to invigorate this character over the years, but a feature film and two different television series. Other adaptations, sans the name, have occurred but that is clearly more influence than attempt.

This particular issue is obviously a set up for the upcoming series and it is not quite a full length comic, weighing in at fifteen pages of story. But when something costs you merely a quarter, you should not complain even a little. Portraying the heroine in a strong, thoughtful manner, this sneak peek is little more than an introduction but still has a bit of adventure wedged into its small frame. There is quite a bit more dialogue than expected but she does speak with animals in several past versions. This oratory seems, however, to be mainly for the reader and not really to drive the plot.

Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: July 12, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

The world has changed, nothing is as it was. The line between the haves and the have-nots has widened, delineated by the wall that separates them physically. But more than that, in Skin & Earth #1 there is an emotional difference in where you live. It is reinforced by the quality of life or lack thereof. For a student like En Jin, who sees the way the others live in luxury, it is a terrible blow to her already fragile psyche.
