Stories of Sheena - Queen of the Jungle

Total Issues: 1

This short-lived pulp was unusual in featuring multiple stories about its lead character. Sheena was the lead feature in the long-running Jungle Comics, and also appeared in movies and a TV series. In some incarnations she has the ability to communicate with or mentally control animals, although this is only a vague suggestion in most of the comic book stories. No such ability is displayed in the pulp stories.
