Golden Age of Comics



Sheena Jumbo Comics
Sheena, Jungle Queen

The jungle girl heroine, Sheena, was an orphan who grew up and learned how to survive and live in the jungle. She could communicate with wild animals and would fight with knives, spears, and bows.

Sheena, though created by American writer-artists Will Eisner and Jerry Iger, first appeared in the British magazine Wags #1, in 1937. She appeared in North America in Fiction House's Jumbo Comics #1, and subsequently in every issue (Sept. 1938 - April 1953). Her groundbreaking, 18-issue spin-off, Sheena, Queen of the Jungle (Spring 1942 - Winter 1952) was the first comic book to title-star a female character and preceeded Wonder Woman #1 (cover-dated Dec. 1941).

Sheena inspired a wealth of similar comic-book jungle queens, such as Lorna, the Jungle Girl and Rulah, Jungle Goddess.
