Plainer Jane Returns To Kickstarter In A Full Colour TPB
From Broken Face Comics
This will be one of those occasions where I will get the collected edition while also having individual issues. With the success of the Plainer Jane series, the collected edition in full colour is coming to Kickstarter!
The full colour complete edition of the critically acclaimed comic book series Plainer Jane is here!
The darkly comic story of Jane Pearson, a seemingly ordinary teenage girl who becomes a brutally efficient killer for hire.
With no training or special skills, just her own cunning, brutality, and fearlessness, Jane leaves a trail of bodies behind her. Ultimately going head to head with the feared and secretive criminal gang The Nexus, in a war that could ultimately cost not only her life but the lives of everyone she loves.
A real world comic book set in modern day Manchester.
There has been a LOT of work done to make sure that this complete standalone book is worth owning, even if you have all the original issue.
Every page has been coloured by Linda Scott Campbell. They look incredible as you can see from the samples.
The original issues have all been completely redrawn by Samir Simão, so the art is consistently fantastic throughout. With the same artist from start to finish.
The book has been fully re-edited and re-lettered to improve the overall pacing.
Several extra pages have been added to the final chapter, adding an exciting new dimension to the ending.
Lots of character art and other bits and pieces have also been added.
This really is the ultimate edition of the book.
