- Full Description
Thrill to the adventures of strong women who right wrongs–jungle style! Read all about them in this curated anthology of complete comic stories--and a gallery of all-time great covers--from the 1940s and '50s. Plus a killer illustrated introduction with pages and pages of insight, original artwork and bonuses. Sassy, brassy, and beautiful, here are the Jungle Girls of the four-color Golden Age including: Tygra, Princess Pantha, Rulah, Fantomah, Judy of the Jungle, Camilla, Jun-Gal, Cave Girl, and of course, Sheena!
Feast your eyes on the artwork of Frank Frazetta, Fran Hopper, Bob Powell, Everett Raymond Kinstler, Jack Kamen, and last but not least, Matt Baker! Also includes an Introduction by Dr. Sheena Howard, whose book, Black Comics: Politics of Race and Representation won the 2014 Eisner Award for Best Scholarly Work. The gallery of covers presents many of the most iconic works by Matt Baker, Jack Kamen and others to grace the jungle comics.
The cool point here is that even if you've collected PS Artbooks collections of Sheena and Rulah, this is packed with far more material that has not been collected. This covers the entire spectrum of jungle girls. For instance, here is the never-reprinted "Crusoe Island" by Avon's wildest artist, Howard Larsen from Rangers #33, 1947, and from the notorious Slave Girl Comics #1, 1949. And more fine work by Art Saaf from Thrilling Comics, 1949; Sheldon Moldoff from Startling Comics, 1947; Fran Hopper from Jungle Comics,1946.
One of Frazetta's earliest solo comics pieces is here, "Judy of the Jungle" from Exciting Comics, 1948. Bob Powell contributes a stunning Cave Girl epic, "the Devil Boat," from Cave Girl #12, 1953. The Sheena here is from 1945 and check out its creative line-up: Robert Webb, Alex Blum and Matt Baker!
Seventeen full page covers include two classics by Alex Schomberg. The 23-page introduction includes a full page Sheena by none other than Dave Stevens, plus a recreation cover, a magnificent piece, by Fiction House artist Dan Zolnerowich that is better than the original from Jungle Comics #135.
