Cover by L.B. Cole from Jungle Thrills #16 (February 1952, Star Publications). There is never enough space to give thanks to all the people who made themselves indispensable during the process of creating this Jungle Romp, but I would be remiss if I did not single out David Saunders and the late Hames Ware, chief among my “Irregulars” and all around good eggs! Roy Thomas remains a huge source of information, encouragement and inspiration in every project I do. If you are ready for a really “swingin’” time, his series Roy Thomas Presents “Sheena Queen of The Jungle“ is not to be missed. And of course, none of this is ever possible without the friendship, coaching and excitement generated by Craig Yoe and Clizia Gussoni, artists, writers and just about the best parents ever. Just ask their adorable kids! —Mitch Maglio Many thanks to: Jim Alperin, Giovanna Anzaldi, Bart Bush, Scott Dunbier, Heritage Auctions, Dr. Sheena Howard, Rob T.
