Whitney Elizabeth Houston (Brown) 1963-2012

 Genre appearances included...
Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella (Fairy Godmother / performer: "Prologue", "Impossible", "It's Possible", "Finale Ultimo", "There's Music in You")
The Preacher's Wife (Julia Biggs)
The BodyGuard (Rachel Marron / performer: "Queen of the Night")
 Note: The BodyGuard is not really genre, but it's use of footage from the classic 1926 film Metropolis as well as the Maria-Robotrix-influenced costume prominently featured in the video for "Queen of the Night" and the film itself make it worthy, IMHO, of inclusion.

This tale, penciled by Robert Webb and Inked by Ann Brewster for Jumbo Comics #87 (1953), was adapted from 2-D to 3-D for 3-D Sheena Queen of the Jungle #1 (1953) during the 1950s 3-D craze and reprinted (with corrected 3-D effects by Ray Zone) in 1985 (which is the version we're presenting here).
