    The Fandom Post - Richard Gutierrez Aug 2, 2017

    This first issue of Sheena Queen of the Jungle is a courageous effort by a talented writer's Marguerite Bennett and Christina Trujillo and the skillful hands of Moritat and Andre Szymanowicz for allowing us to once again tread lightly upon a hidden land long forgotten. The excitement is barely contained as we watch the panther-like strength of this queen defend her kingdom from all who would trespass, while she attempts to learn of the world beyond her charge. Beware those who may challenge her domain, Sheena is the ruler of this jungle and she will allow none to transgress without permission, but I for one cannot wait until our next visit – for this one was far too short for the value.

    The Pop Break - Sheena Fisher Aug 2, 2017

    Ok, so I have been reading Sheena of the Jungle since I can remember thanks to my dad. He had comics and of course the terrible movie. I can say that this version of her so far has been my favorite. Sheena is meant to be a protector, and even though she's not the smartest with technology, she's ridiculously intelligent and great at overcoming difficulties. Both of those important things shined brightly in in this version. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - Donald Edmonds Aug 2, 2017

    Sheena: Queen of the Jungle: #0 is a short story that could very well be a memorable series going forward. There is a lot of stuff teasing us in this issue that promises a fish-out-of-water story much like Tarzan was. This with the twist of being in the modern era with advents of technology and today's culture. The artwork by Moritat is beautiful and perfectly captures moments of serenity while emphasizing action and movement. Bennet and Trujillo strive to bring strength and complexity to a character with such a long history. The authors also pay homage to Sheena's rich media history in both comics and film.

    Could be better, could be worse. For a free issue, no harm done. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Aug 16, 2017

    Despite the issues with the art, I still found myself enjoying the story immensely. The script by Marguerite Bennett and Christina Trujillo works past its standard plot to establish Sheena's personality, if not her backstory, for new readers. Read Full Review

    Sheena, Queen of the Jungle #0 shows that bringing back old pulp characters is a difficult task, but it has great Moritat art. She's no punk rocker that's for sure. Read Full Review

    Bennett and Trujillo also deliver a fantastic hook for next issue, and it will be interesting to see how that premise is implemented into future issues. Sheena: Queen of the Jungle isn't afraid to embrace its pulpy roots, and while it might not be for everyone, you shouldn't be afraid to give this hero a chance. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Ashley Gibbs Aug 16, 2017

    Even with the twist ending of Sheena #0 I am unsure how I feel about the series yet. While this adventure was dangerous, it was also rather tame and I hope to see more adventures down the road. But, this issue did accomplish its goals in my eyes. It reintroduced Sheena and her mission to protect the jungle, showed us some of her skill and personality and gets readers interested in what will happen in the next issue. This one is only a quarter which is a great price in my mind for a short but amusing adventure. You don't have much to lose by picking this up and giving it a shot. Read Full Review

    Sheena is carefree jungle romp, a woman's body on display and not much else. Read Full Review

    Overall, there really isn't much here for me in the new Sheena Queen of the Jungle book. For every good panel or section of dialogue there were five bad ones. I simply adore comics as a whole and always try to find something redeeming in every issue I review as I just don't want to completely trash anyone's work. Read Full Review

    Cover - If I was in position to choose, I will have choose another cover. But my comic shop can only have this one. So this will do. 1/2 Writing - Ok the story is not very strong, or very original. But I find it good. I love the secret temple with all the trap. I like the conundrum that will push her to go in the forbidden temple to retrieve the drone. And I find it cunning to make sheena pushing us to make falls assumption. That make a fun and surprising cliffhanger. 2/3 Arts - Well that's not bad, but the outfit change too many time. And at the beginning I mistaken the drone for a Ufo. So I was very surprised that the arrow hurt it. Then I see the Arrow's size and understand that was a drone. 2/3 Sentiment - Fun but a little light. But the price make that pass for now. I hope the next one will have more in hand or I will stop this ongoing very shortly 1/2
