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.
It wasn’t too long ago that we saw a couple of other Lady Death Kickstarters (Damnation Game and Chaos Rules) from creator Brian Pulido. I backed them both and was more than happy to do it again, it is Lady Death after all! As with his other fundraisers, Pulido sets realistic goals and puts together some amazing rewards.
Read on to find out more about Pulido’s new graphic novel Lady Death: Extinction Express, his latest venture into the world (or is that underworld) of Lady Death, and to watch the official Kickstarter video!
Guess who’s back?! Quickly following up on the success of his former Kickstarter campaign (seen here), Brian Pulido is ready to publish another Lady Death graphic novel! And not only is Pulido’s new graphic novel, Lady Death: Damnation Game already funded, but it’s quickly outpacing the last one. It’s an amazing time in the comic industry when any one of us can be directly involved in helping creators get their projects printed! The fact that it’s Lady Death doesn’t hurt at all.
When Brian Pulido contacted me, I was over the top excited. When he agreed to answer some questions for this Kickstarter Spotlight I almost literally jumped up and down with glee! I have been a fan of his Chaos! Comics characters since the nineties and it is nice to see him back in action with his iconic anti-heroine. As one of the original “bad girls” of the comics from her era, Lady Death has enjoyed widespread fame over the last two decades. But enough of the history, let’s talk about the current fundraising campaign!
