In Review: Sheena: Queen Of The Jungle #5

As monsters and mercenaries clash, Sheena must race to prevent a war

Synopsis: As monsters and mercenaries clash, Sheena must race to prevent a war that could annihilate all she holds dear!

Review: Marguerite Bennett and Christina Trujillo conclude their first arc of Sheena adventures in style. The face stealers have been set free due to Cadwell’s careless digging and the breaching of a seal that has kept them imprisoned.

The only way that can be stopped is if Sheena is able to get the Cadwell people to work with her to send that face stealers back from whence they came, but that may not be as straightforward as it sounds.

Thankfully Sheena has her tribe and the ever-reliable Chano who looks to aid in her battle against the monsters.

This final issue of the story provides some brilliant dialogue and there is a fantastic moment where Sheena proudly announces herself as she battles the monsters that seek to take over the world. It was what you might call a hear me roar kind of moment, which is brilliantly written and visually fantastic thanks to some nice artwork.

Moritat visual interpretation of the various battles taking place our mouth watering. I love the series of panels where the face stealers are taunting Sheena. Much like the various jungle scenes the art just leaps off the page and completely immerses you into Sheena’s world.

Given that this is Moritat’s final issue. The artist goes out in style by giving readers a lot to take in.

Overall. This was a great issue, which wrapped up what has been a fantastically fun story, which gave us a supernatural tale in which Sheena is forced to battle monsters due to the interference of outsiders. Thankfully there will be a new story arc starting up next month, which promises to be just as fun and exciting as this one has been. Hopefully, it will be.
