American cartoonist Paige Braddock is best known for her Eisner-nominated comic strip, JANE’S WORLD, the first gay-themed work to receive online distribution by a national media syndicate in the US. Braddock released a special anthology celebrating the ground-breaking comic’s 20th anniversary in August 2018. LOVE LETTERS TO JANE’S WORLD, out now through Lion Forge, collects some of the comic’s most notable storylines and pairs them with love letters from fans and comic creators. New installments of JANE’S WORLD can be found on GoComics.
Braddock published the first novel inspired by the comic series in 2016 with Bold Strokes Books. She has also written a series of lesbian romance novels with this publisher under the pen name, Missouri Vaun.
