    That's good news Sheena is returning to comics. I really like the Richard Bonk cover and hope the costume looks like that. I think for at least for one issue Sheena should look like Irish McCalla. Will her archenemies The Leopard Men appear? Sheena history website: www.terrororstralis.com/sheena.htm
