Sheena #2 2nd story - grabbed, manhandled, tossed

Categories Peril

This issue was published in 1943 with over a million GI's in foxholes across Europe. These provided a huge market base for Sheena books -- and it was nearly all an adult market, not teenage. As a result these early issues of Sheena, like nearly all stories of female crime-fighters during the war, are full of gga and DID art. It would take the war to end and a full decade to pass before the Comic Book Code would appear and put the damper on great DID stories such as these. In this early 40's issue Sheena has four stories, two of which are outstanding for DID art. The pics below are from the second story in the issue. In this tale, the voluptuous jungle queen is helping some botanists find specimins of the rare black orchid flower which grows deep in the jungle. Unfortunately another jungle queen "owns" the land where the orchid grows, and she sets her cap for Bob -- Sheena's mate. This leads to trouble when she tries to have Sheena exterminated so she can have Bob all for herself. Pics below show the golden haired beauty grabbed, manhandled and tossed over a cliff, all in an effort to win Bob's love. (Far-fetched plot, I know, but makes for great DID scenes). Sheena manages to survive and with her lover and the botanists, they all escape to safety with mission accomplished.
