The world tour continues, albeit as less of a “Blonde in a Red Dress” than “Blonde in a Red Bikini and Fancy Ballet Slippers”. (The budget went towards travel expenses and animal stunts, not authentic costuming.)

Iconic jungle heroine “Sheena” was more well-known for her leopard-print leotard look, but on a few early comic covers her role was filled by that all-purpose understudy: The Blonde In A Red Dress.
Yup, a hero like a ghost (specifically, a more famous purple-suited Ghost Who Walks) but in an off-brand knockoff sort of way.
The Blonde in Red really needs to talk to her agent. If she has to put up with the captive-jungle-sacrifice Fay Wray homage, it should have at least have been done with “Duke in Gorilla Land” as the featured cover image instead of this Fantoman guy.
A green rhinoceros in honor of St. Patrick’s Day? Even if so, it’s still the worst jungle safari vacation ever. She should totally demand a refund from the travel agency.
I love how her facial expression while tied to the back of a rampaging rhino isn’t fear or confusion, but simply resigned annoyance.
…Or maybe it was that spear plus a punch to the jaw.
Apparently our heroine’s jungle safari vacation is still going pretty much as expected.
