Topic: Comic Book History
I have blogged about the modern day return of the Jungle Comics genre before. (Click here for just one archived blog post.)
One could say that the genre today is dominated by great 'Good Girl Art' (GGA), and that would be correct. Just as the older Golden Age Jungle Comics genre is mainly collected for the GGA!
Take for example Dynamite Comics' new "Jungle Girl" series, which is returning under the direction of cover artist/co-plotter Frank (Avengers) Cho, co-plotter/writer Doug (The 'Nam, Savage Tales) Murray, and interior artist Adriano (Red Sonja) Batista!
The cover at the top right is from Issue #1 of the new series, and is actually one of two cover that are being printed for this series kickoff.
One cover is by Frank Cho and the other is a "1 in 4 chase cover" by Adriano Batista!
"From the stunning conclusion of the first season to the exciting opening of our new season of stories, Jungle Girl delivers action, excitement, twists, thrills and the finest illustrations of dinosaurs and the female form found in comics today!"
Of course the publishers have to go back to promoting the artwork even when telling us about the story...(LOL).
But there must be a storyline there also because...
..."for our second season, Cho and Murray are taking the action underground and underwater as more clues regarding Jana, the undisputed Queen of the Jungle, finds out more about her mysterious past, and the mysterious island she call home!"
