Official Press Release

This April, the first appearances of the first title heroine to have her own comic book come out of the vault in Golden Age Sheena: The Best of the Queen of the Jungle. The remastered Sheena collection from Devil's Due Publishing features never before reprinted issues of Jumbo Comics and Sheena Comics.

Over 144 pages of Sheena stories from the 1930's, 1940's, 1950's comprise the new volume, accompanied by an essay from current Sheena: Queen of the Jungle writer Steven E. de Souza (Commando, Die Hard). The same comics were once decried by Dr. Frederic Wertham for "torture, bloodshed, and lust in an exotic setting" in his infamous 1954 book Seduction of the Innocent. The comics came from Eisner/Iger Studios, helmed by comic book legends Will Eisner and Jerry Iger.

Devil's Due's all new POP line of useable artwork will also release an accompanying set of Golden Age Sheena stickers featuring artwork from the stories in the new volume, available separately.
