Paige Braddock's "Jane's World" will be the first comic strip featuring a lead gay character to appear in mainstream newspapers when The Atlanta Journal-Constitution begins a test run of the strip on Sunday, September 21. The move comes surprisingly on the heels of the newspaper's recent published apology over running a front-page photo of Madonna and Britney Spears kissing at the recent MTV Video Music Awards. Online readers can find "Jane's World" at the AJC Web site or in its usual home at United Media's Comics.com site.
