Rima The Jungle Girl

When the Rima the Jungle Girl series came out from DC Comics in the 1970s, I was spellbound by Nestor Redondo's lush and exotic artwork. Everything Mr. Redondo drew was great, of course, but his style seemed more natural on this title than on Swamp Thing.

I was not as entranced a couple of years ago by the New Wave version of the Rima character, but I did very much like the Rags Morales artwork that introduced her to us. I just learned this week that there was a proposal to give New Wave Rima a comic book of her own but it didn't get past the planning stages. Over on his blog, writer Brian Wood tells about this and a few other unproduced series that he pitched to DC Comics over the years.
