Shanna is one of the fave MU females. This was not Shanna.
Was disappointed that there was no connection to the main Marvel MU timeline confirmed AFAIK. Also, any connection to the Frank Cho's Shanna mini was also not stated one way or the other, AFAIK, while having read it. These were big strikes against.
And the art seemed rushed in many of the panels. The conclusion was too plain after anticipating bigger and better for the 4 months. The survival ability of Shanna's 'team' bordered on the farfetched at times. Will say, paying the lower TPB price compared to 4 cover prices may have made me somewhat more agreeable than indifferent.
Other more in depth reviews would be worth considering too. To fairly guage your interest, the gist of the series can really be summed up by the online preview pages available out there. Found these for you:
SHANNA THE SHE-DEVIL: SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST #1 (of 4)
SHANNA THE SHE-DEVIL: SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST #2
SHANNA THE SHE?DEVIL: SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST #3 (of 4)
Shanna the She-Devil : Survival of the Fittest #4
