Cavegirl Art 26: Shanna the She-Devil

We have shamefully neglected this blog for far too long but we intend to post more here in the next few months.  Shanna the She-Devil isn't really a cavegirl but we include her her as she comes under the sub-category of jungle girl and could, equally, be a cavegirl in a Lost World where she has picked up a steel weapon from an explorer.  Anyway, we don't need any excuse to put up another picture by the peerless Milo Manara.

Shanna is unusual in that she was the creation of a female writer, Carole Seuling, back in 1972 when Marvel were deliberately trying to build their appeal to women.  In the convoluted story illustrated here, she is gathering some S.H.I.E.L.D. agents on a lost island inhabited by monsters and Neanderthals.  So, quite cavegirl enough!
