Jane Vasko was once an undercover police officer attempting to infiltrate the Fonti Mob. After gaining the trust of mob boss Joey Fonti, she was given the assignment of passing a message onto rival gang member Adam, not realizing that she was planted with an explosive device. As she met her target, the explosion caused significant injuries, but Adam was uninjured. Through mysterious means, he managed to revive Jane, giving her superhuman regenerative powers in the process. Leaving her life as a police officer behind, she became the vigilante Painkiller Jane.

"Well, it looks like Christmas is lasting till February (and beyond!) I'm really looking forward to Joe and Jimmy's Painkiller Jane. It's going to be great to see those two working together again. The new series will be just the ticket to capitalize on the TV pilot by pushing my customers to advnance order. I just hope the TV producers do the property justice. Even if the movie is not what I expect, I know Quesada/Palmiotti and Dynamite will put out a quality product! I'll ordering many for the shelves as I feel this will be a solid selling book!"

And I have to say, I'm really happy with Dynamite's quality. While they have been late (just got Red Sonja #3, but it flew!), their quality is great. I expect no less here.On a final note, while I know that there's some critism on alternate covers, but I'm happy that Dynamite Entertainment adds in alternate covers, it helps the fans choose their favorite artist, while still getting the same quality books. Now if only they would listen to me and create a contest to give away the original art to the Adam Hughes retailer incentive cover, that would be the icing on the cake!"
Look for it all to begin in February (and look for Painkiller's TV debut on 12.10.05 on SCIFI www.scifi.com/painkillerjane/index.html)
