SHEENA QUEEN OF THE JUNGLE #3

comics

“Return of the Jaguar Men Part Three”
Writers: David De Souza & Paul D. Storrie
Artist: Shawn McCauley

Sheena fights the jaguarmen on the roof of her mansion. Her loyal jaguar Yagua jumps in to save her but gets thrown off the roof and captured by Colonel Pinto’s men. He wants Yagua as a bargaining chip in getting the location to an emerald mine. From here things move pretty fast. A female student in the archeology team has dreams that lead to a secret opening in the temple and a treasure room. Sheena her friends Ransome and Kellerman are there when Colonel Pinto’s men come. Just then a student and his brothers are revealed to be the jaguar men. He found the herb that can transform men into jaguarmen. Fortunately while the jaguar men are formidable they are not immune to bullets or well placed knives. Then they have to fight a group of revenge minded poachers but the result is the same. Oh and Yagua escapes so he can’t be used so everything ends well for Sheena.

The final issue in the series comes to an exciting conclusion. It goes fast but has a lot of action with the fights with the jaguar men. It ends with two epilogues. One was the young woman who is going north because of visions. The other is a doctor who is behind the jaguarmen getting a tablet that was successfully taken from the temple. So there is a strong possibility of future Sheena issues in the future. This was from 2014 so I am hopeful. I love the world that was created for Sheena in the fictional country of Val Verde. And I think I have fallen in love with Sheena. A great series.

SHEENA QUEEN OF THE JUNGLE #2

comics

“Return of the Jaguar Men Part II”
Writers: David De Souza & Paul D. Storrie
Artist: Shawn McCauley

The video of Yagua being the man eating attacker has leaked out. Now everyone is coming out to hunt Sheena’s jaguar friend down. Colonel Pinto the head of the secret police is leading the hunt. The archeology team manages to enter the temple and find that the old jaguar cult practiced human sacrifice. Sheena also finds that Yagua was attacked by something with claws and is being nursed back to health. At the same time Colonel Pinto arrives at Sheena’s compound with his men seeking treatment from a gunshot wound. It is then that she hears a noise from the roof and when she investigates finds real life anthropomorphic jaguar men.

Another fun story with an interesting story. We get to see Sheena in her Rachel Cardwell persona and balance the dumb act with her natural intelligence. It also ends with a cliffhanger in the appearance of the jaguar men. Very interested in finding out more about them and what happens.

SHEENA QUEEN OF THE JUNGLE #1

“Return of the Jaguar Men part I”
Writers: David & Steven E de Souza
Artist: Jake Minor

An archeologist expedition is excavating a temple of the legendary Jaguar Men. The temple in on the property of Rachel Cardwell and was a former drug kingpin estate. Rachel is also secretly Sheena and she is going out to take down some more intruders desecrating the jungle. This time the bad guys are enslaving the local natives to mine emeralds. Sheena and her animal friends make short work of the guys and have plenty of emeralds to donate to the local mission. She comes back to her estate to find out that one of the students has been viciously mauled by an animal. Kellerman managed to get a picture and it shows a jaguar that looks like Sheena’s jaguar friend Yagua.

So Sheena has moved to a new comic company. But it still retained the writer of Die Hard who created this series. Its another interesting idea. An archeological expedition. A mysterious local legend about the Jaguar Men. Fierce men that could transform into flesh eating jaguars. And of course the beautiful Sheena kicking butt on the bad guys.
