Moonstone Goes Back to the Jungle with Savage Beauty #2
Published on Tuesday, April 12, 2011 by

Savage Beauty is trying to be Jon Sable in a skirt, bringing the cultural clash to the strong female lead in a revised jungle book. Updating this genre without losing the comic shop shelf appeal is a daunting task but well met in the first issue. Issue #2 of Savage Beauty is heading to comic shops near you soon. Check out their recent press release.

Press Release
Moonstone Entertainment, Inc., Captain Action Enterprises, and Runemaster Studios, announce that SAVAGE BEAUTY #2 is on its way!

An updating of the Jungle Girl genre tale, SAVAGE BEAUTY uses two very strong female leads to not only introduce pulp like heroics into the jungles of today’s world, but also tackles real life issues. The comic is a tool of vital partnership between its creators and agencies and organizations dedicated to making life better and even saving lives in Kenya, Africa, and other ravaged lands.

SAVAGE BEAUTY #2 Ripped from today’s world news comes a reimagining of the classic jungle girl genre debuting a new hero for the modern age!

Anaya trails the PLA into the mountains of the DR Congo after they kidnap the wife of a Ugandan dignitary intent on selling her into slavery. Follow the trail of political upheaval down the streets of human trafficking as Lacy and Liv unleash their Savage Beauty!

Also, SAVAGE BEAUTY #2 takes another great look back at the golden age with jungle pulp covers. SAVAGE BEAUTY’S charity partners this issue are Do Good Day and Resolve.

And in case you’re wondering what people thought of SAVAGE BEAUTY #1, read on!
Eric J., www.thepullbox.com, summed up the origins and appeal of SAVAGE BEAUTY wonderfully-I am a huge pulp fan, always have been…The adventure, thrill and danger of an altruistic hero risking life and limb to take down a dastardly villain was almost too much for my little 7-year heart to handle. Well, what I know (as most of you do too) is that when creative teams try to “modernize” the genre something is lost in the translation and they fail more often than they succeed…Running counter to that sad norm, the folks over at Moonstone have been lighting the way for years and showing fans that pulp can still be done and done well. Savage Beauty, as a title, just continues to add to their testimony.
In his review at www.playeraffinity.com, Dustin Cabeal points out what makes SAVAGE BEAUTY a modern and relevant title in his ‘Short Version’-If you’re looking for a sexy jungle story about two women fighting the crimes of Africa then you’ll only be half right. This story is anything but goofy and uses the comic to look at a very realistic problem in the world, while presenting it in a very accessible way. Simply put this isn’t a kid’s comic, but it’s still really good.
Ray Tate with www.comicsbulletin.com sees SAVAGE BEAUTY as a welcome addition to the jungle girls category of books. The writers and artists direct their talents to raise awareness about real world vermin while creating satisfying escapism in a twist on legacy heroism.

Christopher with www.jonja.net states-Don’t let the cover fool you, this is more than just an excuse to draw pretty girls in fur bikinis. This new spin on the jungle heroine looks like it will be a serious and at times dark journey to, at least in the literary world, bring justice to the criminals that deserve it most.

SAVAGE BEAUTY #2-Swinging at You soon from MOONSTONE!
