Zenescope's Jungle Book gets a sequel in Jungle Book: Last of the Species


Earlier this year, Zenescope released their take on a class, The Jungle Book. I grew up watching the Disney cartoon, it was one of my favorite. So obviously the first series was an easy decision to buy. It did not disappoint, the story followed and introduced just the right amount of character I was familiar with. But did something completely different with them, the way Zenescope has become famous for.

So with that a new book has been revealed, Jungle Book: Last of the Species. It’s first issue will be hitting shelves on February 27, 2013, with Mark L Miller returning to pen the continuing adventures of Mowglii. The story looks to be picking up right where the first one left off. Mowglii has recovered from her last battle, but new problems arise like any good tale.

So make sure when you go pick up comics this week, to let your local shops know you want a copy!
