Official Press Release
The first issue of Jane’s World brings its daffy vision
of life and love into the comic book stores in January.
This comic book version isn’t just a reprint of the
popular on-line comic strip, it expands the storylines
with new material designed just for the comic book market.
“After working in the short groups of panels of the daily
strip for so long, the ample space of a comic book freed
me to take the work so much further,” explains Paige
Braddock, Jane’s creator. “By the second issue, half the
book was new material.”
The daily version of Jane’s World is syndicated by United
Media, making it one of the few virtual strips handled
by a major real-world syndicate. The strip features Jane,
a lesbian newspaper employee with a love of her happy
face mug, a distrust of her own happiness, and a tendency
to be pulled into all the wrong situations; her awkwardly
male roommate Ethan; Dorothy, whose PhD in English makes
her well equipped to work as a coffee waitress; and Chelle,
who *may not* be a vampire, but that’s hard to prove.
Along the way we’ll meet Bud, Jane’s cousin who prefers
the simple pleasures of a beer and folding chair to actually
doing anything, and Dixie, a Southern gal who gets turned chimp
and back again.
“The online version of Jane’s World has drawn a
surprisingly wide audience,” says Braddock. “While
there is a strong contingent who check it out because
it has a lesbian lead character, I find that the other
readers try it and stick with it because its themes
are very human, looking at how crazy life gets when it’s out
of our control, and how much crazier still it gets when
we try to control it! Of course, I’m looking forward to
adding to the built-in audience of Jane’s online fans with
a new audience who may encounter Jane in Previews or in the
ads in Strangers In Paradise, or simply from seeing it in
their local shop.”
