Jane In Space



Had a request recently for some more Jane, from when she returned to her home in The Daily Mirror back in the early '80's.
Well, courtesy of blog pal Colin Brown, here's how the queen of good girls came back, as both she and John M. Burns have a blast, both literally and figuratively, in their first adventure together. ( Any hold-outs who still haven't joined Colin's John M Burns Art facebook group out there? )

  3. I remember Robert Maxwell appearing on GMTV promoting the return of JANE and being asked what adventures she'll be getting into, and he replied "Jane loses her knickers in space" and everyone laughed assuming he was joking.

    A real guilty pleasure of a strip (fnar) for me this.
