The God Mountain is almost gone, revealing the sleeping behemoth that, when awakened, will destroy the Lost World and all its inhabitants. There is only one way to stop it — an ancient device hidden in a temple deep in the forest, although it is missing a vital part. When Jana and Togg locate the piece, it’s up to them to get it to Jana’s father at the temple. Can they do it in time? Can they save the world? And if so, what will it cost them?

Dynamite Announces Women of Dynamite: Jungle Girl Statue

Dynamite Entertainment expands its merchandising program with the Jungle Girl Statue, the third in its line of porcelain Women of Dynamite statues. Produced as part of their announced creative partnership with merchandise development company The Brewing Factory, the statue is slated for release in late October and features Jana, the heroine of the Jungle Girl comic book series by industry sensation Frank Cho.

Based on the Cho’s distinctive art and sculpted by the ever-talented Jason Smith, the blonde warrior stands atop the skeletal remains of a triceratops. Hand-painted on cold-cast porcelain, the Jungle Girl statue stands approximately 12″ in height with a 6″ base, with each individually numbered as part of a Limited Edition run. This Women of Dynamite statue comes packaged in a four-color box with a hand-numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

Dynamite Entertainment first announced the Women of Dynamite line of statues in February 2015. The first release in the line features Vampirella, the iconic comic book heroine and horror hostess whose likeness in porcelain is based on art from superstar illustrator J. Scott Campbell. Purgatori, the Egyptian vampire goddess popularized in Chaos! Comics titles, is the second Women of Dynamite statue, based on art from the legendary Michael Turner. Each of these three statues has been sculpted by Jason Smith.

The Women of Dynamite: Jungle Girl Statue will be solicited in an upcoming edition of Diamond Comic Distributors’ Previews catalog.

We’re getting down to the nitty-gritty now! As the creatures from beyond space and time begin to rip the God Mountain apart, Jana and her friends have to fight their way past the Dirt People, blood-drinking worms, and the most powerful (and insane) Dream Walker of them all to acquire the weapon Jana’s father needs to save the Lost World. The Jungle Girl is confident that she can accomplish the mission — the real question is: can she do it before the world around her is destroyed?

The beginning of the End! Creatures from the hovering flying saucer (you’d better check out issue #1 to see where this started!) begin to break up the God Mountain. If they free the dreaming creature inside, the world will be destroyed! Jana and her friends have to fight their way through the Dirt People and past one of their hated and feared Dream Walkers to get to the caverns that holds a piece of an ancient weapon—one that might be able to stop the Aliens from achieving their goal. There’s only one problem—to get the item they need, Jana will have to fight giant blood worms, Gigantopithicenes, and the Dream Walker himself!

Jungle Girl returns in Frank Cho’s epic third act! When we last saw Jana the Jungle Girl, she had escaped from an underwater city and fired a torpedo into the eye of a gigantic underworldly creature of some kind. Bad Move! Her father tells her that those actions have doomed the Lost World in which they all live —- and no sooner does he say that, then things begin to happen. A hole appears in the sky and flaming debris falls through. The jungle begins to burn… Jana and her friends are forced to turn a stampede of gigantic prehistoric creatures who are fleeing before the fire. Can Jana stop the stampede? Will she survive the displaced natives intent on claiming a new homeland? And what other alien materials will emerge from the hole in the sky?
