''Sheena, Queen of the Jungle'' is a comic book character created by WillEisner and S.M. "Jerry" Iger (exactly who came up with the original concept is in dispute as both men have claimed credit). Sheena first appeared in a British tabloid comic called ''Wags'' in 1937. Her American debut occurred a year later as a reprint published in the first issue of Fiction House's ''Jumbo Comics''. Sheena soon became the featured character in ''Jumbo Comics'' and appeared in every one of the book's 167 issues, ending in April of 1957.

Sheena was brought to Africa as a young child by her father, and explorer named Cardwell Rivington, who became friends with a tribal witch doctor named Koba. Koba became quite attached to Rivington, who taught him English. When Rivington planned to move on, Koba concocted a magic potion that would make his friend decide to stay. Unfortunately Koba botched the potion and Rivington died.
