In order to aid struggling comic shops, Art Adams contributed an original sketch of Sheena, Queen of the Jungle to Jim Lee’s charity drive.
Available on Lee’s eBay page, the sketch features Sheena in her leopard-skin outfit as panthers, murder hornets, a gorilla, a python and a T-Rex stalking her. With two days left of bidding and 32 bids, the sketch is now going for $8,200.
“Sheena, Queen Of The Jungle Original Art by Art Adams! Complete with murder hornets & T-Rex!” Jim Lee captioned. “Proceeds of this 3 day eBay auctions benefits struggling comic shops in need via BincFoundation!”
Over the last couple of weeks, Lee has auctioned off charity sketches, drawn by himself and other famed comic artists, to benefit the Book Industry Charitable Foundation, which aims to aid comic shops that have been impacted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. In addition to Adam’s Sheena piece, various other sketches are available on eBay, including one of Mr. Freeze drawn by Lee.
Sheena: Queen of the Jungle was first published by Fiction House in 1937. It featured the first female comic book character to have her own series, preceding Wonder Woman by four years. Sheena was portrayed by Irish McCalla in the 1955-1956 TV series, Tanya Roberts in the 1984 film and Gena Lee Nolin in 2000-2002 TV show.
