Jane's World is a comic strip by cartoonist Paige Braddock. Debuting on March 25, 1998 it stars Jane Wyatt, a young lesbian living in a trailer with her roommate, Ethan, and follows the life of her and her circle of friends. The ensemble cast features many lesbian or bisexual characters.
Paige Braddock created Jane's World so that women, particularly lesbians, would have a comic strip character that they could relate to, though it's meant to be accessible to a wider audience. Braddock devised Jane in 1991 but never actually put her onto paper until 1998, and began publishing on the Internet in late March. In 2001 United Media's Comics.com website picked up reprints of Jane's World, making it the first gay-themed work to receive distribution by a national media syndicate. They began publishing new works in 2007. In addition to web and newspaper publication, Braddock publishes the strip in a comic book format through her own publication house, Girl Twirl Comics. The trade paperback versions feature covers created by different artists.
