From December 1984 and February 1985 (which makes me suspect that the first issue shipped later than planned... presumably to align with the film's release dates): Marvel's two-issue mini-series adaptation of SHEENA, starring ex-Angel Tanya Roberts as the Queen of the Jungle.

Based on the 1930s newspaper strip character, the return to comics marked a return to old territory for the character. Unfortunately the film was a spectacular non-starter (even at the Golden Raspberry Awards where it snagged five nominations but no awards) and vanished back into the shrubbery.

The Marvel adaptation also appeared, in magazine format, as MARVEL SUPER SPECIAL 34. There was no UK outing from the British Bullpen.
