Este es otro tomo que pille saldado en Getxo y este es por culpa de escuchar el podcast especial de porros y tetas que hicieron los de "Charrando de Tebeos". Y esta vez si que ha merecido la pena, y mas tendiendo en cuenta que me salió por 3 veces menos de su precio oficial. Que se puede decir, es Frank Cho haciendo lo que mejor hace y dando su vision de Shanna.

En su visión la tenemos salida de un tanque donde parece que unos científicos nazis la tenían criando como futura arma letal ya que tien

"Frank Cho draws women the way women should be drawn." Yes. I said that, and a truer statement -- be it sexist -- has never been uttered. Nor will it. Ever. Cho has taped into the male mind, identified the perfectly voluptuous comic book heroine from those neutrons, and presents her here -- in vivid color and (thankfully) few clothes -- in SHANNA, THE SHE-DEVIL.

Now, about the story ...

There are a few a major hiccups here:

I'll admit to a little bias. I really like this particular genre. Jungle adventures are fun. They are more fun when they involve dinosaurs, a super-strong jungle girl, and Frank Cho's art. Maybe because there aren't as many of these types of stories as there were in the first half of the 20th century, I like this collection more than I should.

The story is about a group of American soldiers who are stuck on an island lost to time. They discover a Nazi super weapon and name her Shanna, after the M

Wow. I like pinup/cheesecake comic art as much (okay more) than the next guy, but this was just terrible. Outside of maybe a half-dozen pinups scattered among the hundred some pages, this had no redeeming qualities. It was boring, and the dialogue was terrible, and... bleh.

Did this suffer from my reading it right after reading a bunch of really good comics? Maybe... but at the same time, I don't think this would have been any better even if I read it drunk. And it's so bad, I don't even feel lik

Frank Chon "Turvatarha" on mielestäni ollut ihan kohtalaisen hauska strippisarja, joten oli mielenkiintoista tutustua miehen työhön myös toiselta kantilta ja tarttua tähän Shanna-lehden numerot 1-7 yhteen keräävään Marvel-albumiin.

Juoni pähkinänkuoressa: erikoisjoukkojen sotilaat löytävät unohdetun natsilaboratorion jostakin viidakon kätköistä. Sieltä löydetään myös isopovinen ja voimiltaan vähintään kymmentä miestä vastaava Shanna-amatsooni, joka on suunniteltu jonkinlaiseksi geneettiseksi supe

Shanna, The She-Devil collects issues #1-7 of the series of the same name by Marvel Comics, with art and writing by Frank Cho and colors by Jason Keith and Dave Stewart.

Shanna is a Nazi science experiment in the form of an Amazonian jungle girl with a killer body and killer instinct, living on an island teeming with prehistoric horrors. When a paramilitary group becomes stranded on the island after crash-landing, they discover Shanna and quickly learn that she is a genetically-engineered super-w

Hello Fellow Adventure Fans:
I was looking forward to reading this mini-series as I have enjoyed Frank's work on Liberty Meadows. Here he weaves a fresh (and beautifully rendered) take on one of the more popular of the "Jungle Girls." Shanna The She-Devil was a lost character until Frank Cho brought her back with a vengeance. The covers of the six issues of this mini-series are very eye-catching (beyond the beautiful Shanna gracing the covers). There is lots of vibrant color and action as she f

I like the original Shanna more than the new Shanna, but this was still a fun story.

Frank Cho cracks me up. I've followed his career loosely since his Liberty Meadows daily comic strip. This came out as the Liberty Meadows strip was ending and was originally supposed to be a MAX mini series. However, when Frank Cho took over, the nudity and cursing was removed and his sense of humor took over. This is a very quick, fun read that is not to be taken too seriously. If this had been written a few decades ago, the movie would star Raquel Welch, a la One Million Years BC style.

The 7 issue mini-series mostly revolves around Shanna and a resilient army guy fighting off hordes and hordes of velociraptors and the occasional T-Rex.

For its sheer audacity, its camp value, and its decision to re-use such a kitschy character makes Frank Cho’s Shanna the She-Devil one of the weirdest stories out there.

La genial y despampanante Shanna vista a través de los afiladísimos ojos de Frank Cho, en una de las más divertidas y rocambolescas Marvel Graphi Novels.

The story's only so-so, but who would read Shanna for plot? It's all about eye candy. Raptor eye candy!
