Aline Brosh McKenna is an award-winning screenwriter for The Devil Wears Prada and co-creator of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. Jane is a powerful reimagining of Charlotte Brontë’s classic novel Jane Eyre set in present-day Manhattan, where luxury masks dark secrets. The graphic novel is illustrated by Eisner Award-winning artist Ramón K. Pérez (Jim Henson’s Tale of Sand).
Growing up in a broken home in a small fishing town, Jane dreamed of escaping to art school and following the allure of New York City. When that dream becomes a reality, however, it’s not long before she feels out of place by the size of the city and the talent of her peers. She soon discovers her place as she begins to nanny a young girl named Adele, but that is upended when she falls for the girl’s father, Rochester, a sardonic man of power, wealth, and unexpected charm. Jane learns that in the world of New York’s elite, secrets are the greatest extravagance and she’ll have to decide if she should trust the man she loves or do whatever it takes to protect Adele from the consequences of his deception.
