Jumbo Comics #6

I'm not a fan of The Adventures of Tom Sherrill and can't get into this highly stylized art, but with this issue the adventures move off of Tom Sherrill to covering Indian legends...which I suspect are just made up and not actually researched. That said -- I like the idea of a magic rain-making arrow. It's a good one-shot trophy item for Hideouts & Hoodlums.

Bringing in a new supporting cast member can be an excuse to interact with all your old supporting cast, by way of introductions. Of course, in this case, it was an excuse to introduce an all-new supporting cast for Hawk.

Zula's giant robot has the power Turn Gun on (Good) Guys. That is one powerful upgrade on a robot!

But if you're reading Jumbo Comics, it's probably for Sheena Queen of the Jungle here.

Leopards have been discussed on this blog so often that they really need to replace cougars in the next edition.

Oily leaves are probably not ever going to be on the starting equipment list, but maybe there does need to be a game mechanic for blinding attacks.  I'll give it more thought...
