She may still be everyone's favorite yellow-tressed leopard-skin-clad Jungle Jane. She made her first appearance almost 80 years ago (courtesy of Will Eisner and 'Jerry' Iger), swinging through the trees righting wrongs and wielding her knife and spear. In 1938, she premiered in Jumbo Comics #1 where she settled happily into every issue (165 of them) plus a decade in her own title until April 1953. There have been other incarnations, but it's this classic material that started "Good Girl Art."
Long overdue, ex-Marvel editor Roy Thomas presents the original leopard-skin-clad Jungle Jane collected in her own hardback collection. Features artwork from Robert Webb and Alex Blum. The busty blonde goddess of the comics in turn inspired Irish McCalla, who starred as Sheena in the 1950s televisions series. The detailed introduction covers all of Sheena's many appearances, including obscure films and much more, with lots of pictures.
Meanwhile, this collects those first FAT, 64-page issues that featured the jungle goddess on an admittedly irregular basis (she appeared every month, like clockwork, in Jumbo Comics). She even made it into one lone pulp issue. But here is some of her most iconic material, and a couple of her all-time best cover appearances.
Also includes artwork by Art Saaf, Mort Leav, Dan Zolnerowich (famed for his fine Planet Comics covers and art), and even a lone cover by Tarzan newspaper strip artist John Celardo, early in his career.
