Comments: This issue is a seventeen page lead into the regular series.
Sheena is strong, silent and swift. She protects the Amazon jungle. She is portrayed as very superstitious which does fit in living in the jungle. The art shows her as a lithe beauty in her loin cloth outfit.
Sheena enters an ancient ruin hidden deep in the jungle. Sheena enters it to protect it. In one scene while she is inside it, her hand is surrounded by a blue glow of energy and no reason is given. The illustrations of the ruins are great.
The temple ruins, the vines within it seem to attack her.
Sheena is a fighter and this story shows her in a more realistic way. She is agile and strong but not super humanly so.
This issue is a good introduction to the series to come.
