The Queen of the Jungle is swinging back into comics this fall in a brand new series! One of comics’ most historic heroines returns in a bold new take by writer Stephen Mooney that seeks to answer the question – in a very different kind of jungle, the urban one – is Sheena still queen? Mooney is reunited with his Bettie Page collaborator Jethro Morales, as they’ve honed their chemistry together alongside colorist Dinei Ribero.
In a tale evoking such action-packed and incisive films as Jurassic Park, Predator, and The Hunger Games, Sheena is drafted by a conglomerate eager to rehabilitate its image with a haven for endangered flora and fauna in a state-of-the-art combination research center and destination resort — the Bio-Dome!. But on the eve of the grand opening, all communication with staff and the first lucky park visitors has broken off. Inside and outside of the Bio-Dome, Sheena faces obstacles both new and old, including deceit, manipulation, and a deadly creature like nothing she has ever encountered. What she discovers will change her entire world — and her place in it.
That lasting legacy is celebrated with a diverse range of artists contributing to the series beyond the core creative team. Readers and collectors can enjoy covers by Lucio Parrillo, Rose Besch, Arthur Suydam, Joseph Michael Linsner, Carla Cohen, Stephen Mooney, Lesley “Leirix” Li, and even cosplay by Rachel Hollon.
Sheena Queen of the Jungle #1 is slated for release in November 2021
