#4 has a weak villain with a stupid plan. And various elements of the story don't make much sense.

3/10

  I seem to be the only one around here who likes this title, I've given every issue four stars so far.

  If you're going to do a surprise reveal of the hooded villain's face, don't show it in a special spot on the cover with blurbs pointing him out.

  You hear that women? The only thing preventing you from being super strong and agile and beating up monkey men alongside your jungle cat minions is that you don't want it enough! About time someone put y'all in your place!

  Mandrill: not intimidating. Women with mandrill tattoos on their faces, however...

  Just 2 stars for the 1st app of the Mandrill who will go on to appear more over the years!!!

Rhino Tuff - Although, I liked Shanna stopping the rhino--I just wished it was the actual villain Rhino!!!

Femme Fatale - No, it okay Shanna, I don't mind you showering and changing...take your time...

Monkey Business - Just what the hell did Mandrill think would happen? No one knows who he is?? He thinks that being a monkey wearing a hood is supposed to leave everyone in awe???!!!

Something More Comfortable - @AmazingGatorMan: Modern clothing was too restrictive! Shanna had to fight in her skivvy's!!!

Powerpuff -How awesome would've it been if the General's full name was Mojo Jojo??!!!

Bullit - Nice car chase scene!!!

The Weaker Sex - Jakuna Singh is becoming about as useful as Patrick McShane!!!

'Nuff Said - "Let me enjoy this ride!"-Sinful Shanna

  Recommended listening for this story: "Monkey Man", a really good Rolling Stones deep cut. Thing is, the Mandrill should've known he couldn't make Shanna his Monkey Woman, too!

The story wasn't bad, but honestly it didn't cover territory we hadn't seen before. Mandrill is your typical wanna-be power-grabber. However, I had to laugh at the way he talked about his women. "I'm so powerful, these women tattooed their faces in my image!" Uhmmm, eww? And, of course, the typical gratuitous shower scene. I think it'd be more entertaining if, one of these days, I get to read a shower scene where someone tries to pull a Norman Bates on one of these women and she takes him down.

2 stars. It wasn't bad but it wasn't that great either.

  How does something multiply geometrically? Does the diamond broker put in diamonds and get out triangles or something? I don't know which boggles the mind more, that or the artist's complete lack of understanding of gravity and female clothing.

  "Multiplying geometrically" is a synonym for exponential expansion. Technically, it means growing by a ratio (10% bigger every day) instead of a fixed amount ($5 bigger every day) - the latter would be "linear" or "arithmetic" expansion. Metaphorically, it just means growing really big really fast.

Quick, self, tie this math pedantry back into the comic at hand! Okay ... I wish the amount of filler material in this title wasn't multiplying at a geometric rate.
