This collection is like a highlights reel, with some endorsements and quotations from longtime fans and readers including some famous people.
You jump right into Jane's relationships with a string of women, many who cycle back through her life or have dated one another at various times. Jane is a bit fumbling in her job, life, and relationships, but is very likeable. I only wish the stories in this collection had been organized in Jane's World is a comic that has been around for twenty years. I only wish the stories in this collection had been organized in a linear fashion among themselves because there were a few that stuck out as being in the "wrong" order.
I'm not sure what logic was applied I suspect they may be in order comic book wise but that the comics have not told a linear story either. Anyone looking around for more Love in braddock comics should definitely check Jane out!

Paige Braddock is apparently the first cartoonist to write a comic strip with a lesbian as the main character, that was widely distributed.
If you are thinking, well, what about Dykes to Watch Out For, that had much more limited distribution. And while there have been gay and lesbian "episodes" in comic strips, Jane's world didn't shove the lesbian theme in the background, but had it front and center throughout.
If you have been following Jane's World, this is some of the stories that have run in Paige Braddock is apparently the first cartoonist to write a comic strip with a lesbian as the main character, that was widely distributed.

For example, this story, below, is when Jane had a dream about being washed up on the shore of an island of Amazons. In this one, she has to deal with Chelle, her on again, off again, love interest. And here the cartoonist herself breaks the fourth wall to complain about what the characters are up to. There are zombies.
There are aliens. There are spies. And there are normal, every day things, that lesbians Love in braddock straight people do, such as work, and drink coffee. For those who want to be introduced, and for those who know Jane's World, and want others to know about her too. Jul 11, Susie Wang rated it liked it. A funny strip comic collection. The stories are Jane's everyday experiences mixed in with some of her daydreams. She has a vivid imagination. She also has a complicated relationship with her co-worker Chelle.
If you expected a continuous memoir style graphic book, this is not for you. Again, it's a collection of comic stories. I myself don't read a lot of black and white comics, and the font used in the book made it a bit hard for me to read the words. Would've liked it better if the words were ea A funny strip comic collection. Would've liked it better if the words were easier to read.
Aug 19, Todd Glaeser rated it really liked it. Thank you to Netgalley for the free e-copy. I read this when it was printed in comic book form. I met Paige at comic-con and bought the first issue directly from her. So I'd read Love in braddock of this before. This was, in large part, the storylines I would have picked. I was pleased that the long Chelle storyline wasn't included, not because I didn't like it I did.
But because it didn't focus on Jane. Paige was following her muse but I wasn't sure Jane's World was the place for it. I'm hoping this does w Thank you to Netgalley for the free e-copy. I'm hoping this does well so that we might get a complete set in this format.
Mar 10, Stewart Tame rated it really liked it. Among other achievements, JW was one of the first comic strips to appear regularly online, this long before web comics were really a thing. Jane herself is a young woman … not sure how old actually, but out of college and with a fair amount of job experience under her belt. Anyway, she and her friends have adventures, fall in love, occasionally acknowledge their status as characters in a comic strip, and are generally fun to read about. It tends to be reality-based, with occasional fantastic elements.
While it's a comic strip, and there are funny bits, Paige Braddock is not afraid to go for drama and tension if the story requires it. And she excels at character-based humor.
We laugh because we know that person, or, more likely, have been that person. Some of my favorite moments in this book are the crowd scenes where everyone's ex just happens to show up and the awkwardness just builds to ridiculous levels. Oh, and Jane is a lesbian. I almost hate to mention it because she's a multidimensional character of which that's only a single aspect. Jane is, first and foremost, a person. This book collects a sampling of the many storylines that have occurred over the years. Aug 12, Carrie Templeton rated it really liked it.
Paige Braddock paved the way for queer comics and this ode to Jane is a fun peek into her adventures in love and life. Heavy on the comics and lighter on the love letters, I felt like I was able to get to know Jane in this reflective compilation. View 1 comment. Jul 17, Isaiah rated it really liked it. I got an ARC of this book. I had never heard of Jane's World until I saw that this collection was up for grabs.
I also didn't have consistent access Love in braddock newspapers at any point in my life. So it isn't all that surprising that I was not Love in braddock to get into this comic when it was on going. I am very thankful that parts were collected, but I really wish they had been collected in order and released in a multi-volume way instead of selected pieces. I would have been able to follow the story line better if the story line wasn't organized in any which way the way it seemed, unless Chelle and Jane really were together five or six times.
This is my first of three major complaints. The second complaint was how often the straight male characters "stole" the comic and made it into a "lesbians just really need a good man" grossness. The first time it happened, it was pretty amusing because Jane shut it down and made it clear that that behavior wasn't ok. The fact that it kept happening and that Jane was still best friends with the guy who did it is just really gross to me. The third complaint is the couples always just seemed random.
I think that is mostly due to the collection not being complete so the buildup was missed in the sections that were not in the book. I didn't hold this one against the book or the author, because it was easy to blame it on limited space in a collection. It read like a more gay version of Ellen the sitcom. Jane very much was a calmer version of Ellen, well, since the comic came first, Ellen was a more hyper and anxious version of Jane.
The basics were similar, but Jane's World went much further than Ellen ever did. Jane was allowed to have more queer friends. Jane got abducted by aliens, not sure if this is a good or a bad thing. It seemed really odd Love in braddock out of place for the rest of the collection even. The book itself wasn't funny. This was more a slice of life variety than a regular funny s comic. I am a tentative fan. Aug 20, Manon the Malicious rated it liked it Shelves: contemporarynetgalleylgbtqiapsapphic.
I had never heard of it before picking it up on Netgalley. The first strips were drawn in This book was an interesting insight into the comics, and I get how this was a pioneer. However, the world has changed since and I found it had several issues. Also, i had trouble with the love letters from friends of the author when they were in the middle of a story. All in all, an intriguing glimpse into a classic but aged comic.Love in braddock
