Sheena ran primarily in Jumbo Comics, a publication of Fiction House comics. The reason for the unusual name was that originally the large size plates from the British magazine "All Top" were used for the first five issues, and by the time the TV show came on the air, the run of Jumbo Comics had ended. Sheena appeared in all 153 issues of Jumbo Comics See more »
Sheena was gentler and more nurturing than Tarzan.
I liked the series because Sheena was much more gentle and nurturing than her Tarzan counterpart. There were morals to every one of her episodes, from liars not benefiting from their exploits, to we should all respect other people's gods. Set in Kenya, the episodes were complete in each segment. Of course, her chimpanzee side-kick "Chim" stole the show on several episodes. I actually have 8 episodes (not 5) on one DVD. These were captured from VCD/TV, but the quality is fair to good, given their age and transition from television to DVD format. Titles are: Forbidden Land; The Renegades; The Test; Magic Bag; Ganyika Kid; Elephant God; Secret of the Temple; The Lash.
