Talk about a convoluted history! This character has seen more revisions than the MLA Handbook! In Sheena: Queen of the Jungle #0, we see a modern take on a vintage character. Older than Wonder Woman but just as overtly sexualized for decades, Sheena has been both a powerful role model and a scantily clad vixen. Time after time, people have tried to create the perfect version of this character only to fall short of their goals. Not only have a multitude of comic companies tried to invigorate this character over the years, but a feature film and two different television series. Other adaptations, sans the name, have occurred but that is clearly more influence than attempt.

This particular issue is obviously a set up for the upcoming series and it is not quite a full length comic, weighing in at fifteen pages of story. But when something costs you merely a quarter, you should not complain even a little. Portraying the heroine in a strong, thoughtful manner, this sneak peek is little more than an introduction but still has a bit of adventure wedged into its small frame. There is quite a bit more dialogue than expected but she does speak with animals in several past versions. This oratory seems, however, to be mainly for the reader and not really to drive the plot.

Ash vs The Army of Darkness 00 Cover A Bradshaw banner

I think if you told Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell back in the late 70s that the uber low-budget horror film they were working on would still be relevant to pop culture four decades later, they would’ve probably turned the blood hose on you. But alas, the allure of Ashley J. Williams and is just too strong. Thirty-six years after the original Evil Dead film and 30 years after its classic sequel Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn, and 25 years after its ridiculous horror-comedy third installment Army of Darkness, Ash is still trucking along killing deadites and fighting the Necronomicon on Starz network’s Ash vs Evil Dead, which was renewed for a third season. Since 2004, Dynamite Entertainment has been the home of the Ash vs. The Army of Darkness comic book series, so in honor of Army Of Darkness‘s silver anniversary, Dynamite is releasing a special all-new series starting with a #0 issue at the “S–Mart Special” price of only $0.99.

The one thing that sticks out, at least with me, is the sheer number of times this character has been given new origins or has be revamped (no pun intended) over the decades. To be fair though, most don’t deal with the future like Vampirella 2017 #1 does here. She has changed much over the decades, but has always remained a kick ass vampire that takes no crap from anyone.

Swords of Sorrow #1 is many things: a really fun story, even though it’s not supposed to be; a great comic to look at. But, beyond that, this book is special because it stars an all-female cast of heroes. As a man, I almost didn’t want to review this, but then I thought “It doesn’t matter if the book stars women, the only thing that matters is if it’s good or not.” So, is it? Let’s find out…

Because YOU demanded it, Choas #1 is finally here!! Now, I have to warn you, usually the horror genre is NOT my bag. I’m more of a super-hero, licensed-comics guy. But, I though I’d try something different for a change. Was I glad that I did or was it a huge mistake? Let’s take a look…
