Jane Quiet 2.0

Welcome to the relaunch of Jane Quiet, the continuing adventures of the occult investigator Elena Steier and I created. We're happy to be relaunching the comic after some delays. We have all kinds of exciting things in store for you, beginning with a wild trip to Egypt that will include a certain cat-headed goddess as well as some wild demonic mayhem.

We're starting out with a blast from the past for Jane: one of her friends from grad school in Edinburgh has phoned her up, reminding her of one of their adventures there (see the prologue!) before asking for Jane's help with some strange phenomena that are happening in her hometown. A clash between the past and the present, mysterious murders, and ancient Egyptian gods will all come together in this arc.

We'll be making use of our trip to the John Hay Library and its occult collection in the near future, and we hope to have the adventures up on a comics distribution site soon (details to follow). We hope you're as excited about this as we are -- it's been a lot of fun getting up to speed once more. It certainly looks like webcomics are the way to go, so we hope Jane finds a lot of readers.

If you're on Facebook, be sure to "like" our fan page! We'll be giving away a unique prize there.

I don't know if JQ qualifies as a "Forgotten Book" but if you're looking for other reading suggestions, you'll find the list at Evan Lewis' blog (Patti's off celebrating her anniversary: congratulations!).

And paper copies will be avaialble, as well?

Only of the first issue -- at least there are some left. Paper versions will be decided upon later: we have to see if there's enough demand.

Do you ever sleep?

C. Margery Kempe said...

Hee! Oddly enough, I get that question a lot. You should have seen how lazy I was for many, many years. I'm just making up for it now :-)

JQ is so much fun because it's shared work and I think I've got the easier part of it.

Sounds like fun stuff. Both to read and write.

Thanks, Evan!
