Dynamite Entertainment has announced a new Sheena, Queen of the Jungle series coming our way in November from writer Stephen Mooney and artist Jethro Morales.
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.
“It’s exciting getting to play with these kinds of toys and accepting that challenge of adding something new and worthy to the established mythos,” said writer Stephen Mooney. “The fact that Sheena was a bit of a trailblazer is fantastic, but that in itself does not a good story make. It’s up to us newbies to add something perhaps a little more contemporary, without robbing Sheena of any of the elements that already made her great”
Sheena Queen of the Jungle #1 arrives in November 2021.
