I’m a bit late to this party, friends. But I can tell you that it was worth waiting for, without any reservations. Jane is inspired by the classic Jane Eyre but this graphic novel is a work of art unto itself. I have no idea why I waited so long to pick it up but I would literally kick myself if I could, no pun intended.
