Marguerite Bennett says, “Our story is glorious golden age pulp — high adventure, quick wit, ancient mysteries, and daring dames — clashing with the perils of two worlds: one, the modern world come to conquer, and one, a world of dark supernatural mystery long forgotten, awoken to anger once more. This is a fast paced, action packed kick off to more exciting adventures for Sheena!”orld

Co-writer Christina Trujilo said, “The chance to write a character like Sheena has been thrilling. She is a warrior, proud of her heritage and serious about her duty to protect the forest and her home by any means necessary. Sheena takes us on a roller-coaster ride of discovery and danger as she learns more about her home and the ancient secrets the forest protects. I hope you enjoy the ride!”

“We are so incredibly proud of this series, and overwhelmed by the response from both retailers and fans before the series has even launched,” said Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite. “We continue to grow our audience with our Introductory Priced books as this is our highest ordered book of the year, and the program allows retailers to stock up at minimal risk, and fans to read our books at the lowest price possible. We can’t thank all of the incredible retailers who have supported us with such strong orders which helps guarantee the longevity of the series. We want to express our sincerest thanks to all of the retailers and fans whose excitement has driven this success, and have surpassed every single one of our expectations.”

By meeting certain thresholds, retailers will also be able to order our special, limited variant editions, including “Black and White,” “Virgin,” and J. Scott Campbell’s “Jungle Green.”
