After learning of the Savage Land she met her future husband, Ka-Zar, and agreed to marry him and dedicate her life to the protection of the sanctuary.

This exclusive Shanna the She-Devil is due to debut at July’s San Diego Comic Con, with a limited number set aside for online sales after the show. The bust was sculpted by Sam Greenwell and will be strictly limited to 1000 pieces.
