August Update – Sheena Queen of the Jungle Vol 2; Forbidden Worlds Vol 8; Black Cat Softie 5

Sheena-2-header

Roy Thomas presents the Original Jungle Jane in a exclusive three volume set…

She may still be everyone’s favourite yellow-tressed leopard-skin-clad Jungle Jane but, having made her first appearance almost 80 years ago (courtesy of Will Eisner and ‘Jerry’ Iger in the British mag Wags #1), Sheena, Queen of the Jungle could be forgiven for being somewhat less spritely swinging through the trees righting wrongs and wielding her knife. In 1938, she made it Stateside with her first showing in Jungle Comics #1 where she settled happily in every issue (plus a decade in her own title) until April 1953. There have been other incarnations, of course (you can’t keep a doll like Sheena down for long . . . though many have tried) but it’s this classic material that strikes at the very heart of Good Girl Art..

Now for the first time ex-Marvel editor Roy Thomas presents the original leopard-skin-clad Jungle Jane collected together in her own hardback collection. Features artwork from Robert Webb and Alex Blum.

They may have been Forbidden to some–particularly when the Wertham Seduction of the Innocent book hit the newsstands–but to kids the length and breadth of the United States (and a select few in the UK), Richard Hughes and his tremblin’ team of terrific tormenters were where it was at. Big time. And now, a half-century since the first issue appeared, ACG’s wonderful Forbidden Worlds are accessible once more . . . and this time in state-of-the-art hardcover volumes containing five to seven issues apiece. This is going to be one hell of a journey: come make it with us as we travel together through some of the most memorable comicbooks of all time.

You talk and we listen…
Hot off the heals of our first foray into Trade Paperback Editions comes the third part of strangest tales of fear and terror culled from the pages of Harvey’s Black Cat Mystery.

Due to be published August  2014, were making available the whole run of Black Cat Mystery available in a run of sumptuous softcovers, each volume containing five comicbooks but without the support material featured in the hardbacks.

Featuring Issues 50-53 from June 1954 – December 1954 these are gloriously printed on comic book-esque paper complete with glossy inserts for the covers. These are the closest thing to reading the original comics from back in the 1950s.
