This adapts H. Rider Haggard’s popular novel, one of the earliest “lost world” adventures, into comic form. This version downplays Haggard’s imperialist and racial themes, but maintains the novel’s exploration of feminine power and sexuality (as much as they could in a Bronze Age comic). The cover is by Gil Kane.

(I recently watched the 1925 silent film version of “She.” It was pretty good.)
