So, before the bombardment of news out of SDCC, there is some good news for true PaperFilms fans: Painkiller Jane has found a new home.
We are happy to announce that Jimmy has taken Painkiller Jane to Marvel Comics under the Icon imprint. It is important to note, Marvel is just hosting the comic, she is still first and foremost Jimmy and Joe’s creation and ownership. The first mini-series is scheduled for November this year with art by Juan Santacruz on the main story with Sam Lofti doing backup stories in the book. Amanda Conner is on covers. We were also able to snag Dave Johnson to design a snappy new logo for Jane.
