Jane wants to go to the big city and live her dreams, but soon her dreams quickly become a nightmare. Can Jane survive, and thrive? Jane is orphaned at a young age and is forced to live with her extended family. As soon as high school is done, she leaves and heads to New York City to become an artist and gets a job as a nanny to a wealthy businessman who is out for revenge against the people who hurt his wife. Slowly, Jane gets more and more entangled in the life of Rochester and his young daughter. Eventually things take a turn for a worse when the brother of Rochester’s comatose wife comes to kill Rochester and take back his sister for himself. Will Jane survive the encounter between the two men who both love Isabel?

Writer Aline McKenna, along with artist Ramon Perez, gives us an updated, and graphic, adaptation of the classic novel Jane Eyre. The artist does a wonderful job bringing to life the struggle of young Jane, especially when she becomes an orphan, by having those pages in black and white. When she gets to the big city, the illustrations become more colorful, vibrant, and full of life.
