Based on J. Scott Campbell’s stunning cover from Sheena Queen of the Jungle #1, Dynamite is adding Sheena to their line of gorgeous statues. Sculpted by Steve Kiwus, the high quality resin piece is at 1/6 scale and stands approximately 10.5 inches tall on a sturdy 7.5 inches wide base. The Queen of the Jungle is wearing her famous leopard print tunic as she poses on vine-covered logs.
Sheena statueCreated by the legendary Will Eisner and Jerry Iger in 1937, Sheena was the flagship character for Golden Age publisher Fiction House. She was one of the many early heroines who were strong and capable—not damsels in distress. Several female artists were illustrating these tales at the time, such as Lily Renee, Ruth Atkinson, and Fran Hopper.
Sheena coverRecently, Sheena has been the star of Dynamite’s critically acclaimed series by Marguerite Bennett (DC Comics Bombshells, Batwoman) and Christina Trujillo alongside artists Moritat (Harley Quinn, The Hellblazer) and Maria Laura Sanapo (Red Sonja & Vampirella Meet Betty & Veronica).
“Sheena holds a special place in comics history, as the flagship hero of a great Golden Age publisher, all the boundaries she broke and as a continued inspiration to artists and fans,” said Nick Barrucci, Dynamite CEO and Publisher. “Dynamite has been lucky to continue that legend—especially with beautiful covers from artists like J. Scott Campbell. Fans are going to love having this breathtaking cover come into three dimensions and into their collections.”
The Sheena statue will be available for preorder this May and is set to release in July. Head to your favorite comic shop to get yours.
