About Jane's World

New York Times headline on last Jane's World comic strip
As reported in The New York Times on 10/19/18.

Eisner-nominated Jane’s World was the first gay-themed comic work to receive online distribution by a national media syndicate in the U.S. After completing its 20-year run in 2018, Paige Braddock concluded the comic strip with a life event even its galaxy-traveling protagonist could not have legally pulled off when it first began: Jane married Dorothy.

Paige Braddock also released a special anthology with Lion Forge to celebrate the ground-breaking comic’s 20th anniversary, Love Letters to Jane’s World. In 2019 it was selected as a Lambda Literary finalist for best LGBTQ graphic novel. The anthology collects some of the comic’s most notable storylines and pairs them with love letters from fans and comic creators.

Installments of the comic strip can continue to be found at GoComics. There are currently 13 volumes of Jane’s World in print. Braddock published the first novel inspired by the comic series in 2016 with Bold Strokes Books.
