Sheena #8

A poor man's (or in this case, woman's) Tarzan, Sheena has been swinging around the jungles since she was first introduced way back in 1937. The current comic has set Sheena against a global corporation intent on mining the jungle's secrets for its own profits. In the latest issue, Sheena awakes to find herself drugged and caged in the Cadwell Industries Auxiliary Research Laboratory by a scientist who plans to use the company's vast resources to discover what makes the jungle warrior tick believing it be worth billions in the pharmaceutical industry.

Sheena's physical prowess isn't the only thing Cadwell and his pet scientist are interested in, however. They also use the captured Lirio and Chano as leverage against Sheena to open the temple brought back from the jungle which has killed all soldiers who attempted to enter. The problem is neither the obnoxious scientist nor her even more smug boss consider that opening the temple may actually be the a really bad idea.

Sheena #8 is pretty standard stuff, while pretty light on the action. Although the final panel does suggest that things are about to pick up. Hit-and-Miss.
