Rima the jungle girl, art by Joe Kubert, 1975
Rima, the character of the novel Green Mansions : a romance of the tropical forest (1904), was adapted in a comic book character and featured in a short-lived monthly series. 
This character is very different of Audrey Hepburn as Rima in the movie Green Mansion.  In the novel, Rima  was 4.5 feet (1.37 m) tall, 17 years of age, demure and dark-haired.

Green Mansions (1959)
Rima of the novel was 4.5 feet (1.37 m) tall, 17 years of age, demure and dark-haired (although descended from a mysterious group of fair-skinned people), and had lived her life entirely in the deepest jungle. Hepburn at the time of filming was 29 years old, more than a foot taller than the novel Rima, and too stunningly beautiful and smooth-skinned to ever be taken as a forest creature.

Green Mansions was one of the few critical and box office failures of Hepburn’s early career. Vincente Minnelli had originally been slated to direct the film, but delays in the project led MGM to choose Ferrer (Hepburn’s husband at this time) to direct it.
