I bought a second-hand copy of Jane’s World Collection, Vol. 1 after hearing about the strip’s novelization, The Case of the Mail Order Bride, a couple years back. The collection is a delicious, thick steak of a book, with the first fifteen issues leading readers through the adventures of Jane, Chelle, Ethan, and their friends and family. For readers new to the humorous adventures of Braddock’s quirky cast, Love Letters to Jane’s World offers a condensed introduction to the strip’s early, middle, and later story lines. Alien abductions, Amazon fantasies, undercover agents, and in the midst of it all, a woman trying to navigate friendship, romance, and career. Interspersed throughout are affectionate, candid quotes from folks who found a home with the series. While I had anticipated short letters, the quotes, few and far between, still add warmth to the collection. Maybe after reading this fun sampler, you’ll add reflections of your own.
