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...more
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 ...more
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 ...more

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 ...more
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.
Cho received no formal training as an artist. He got his start writing and drawing a cartoon strip called University2 for The Diamondback, the student newspaper at the University of Maryland, College Park. After graduation, Cho adapted el ...more
