The larger-than-life star of her own brand-new series on SCI FI is back, and this time, the bodies are piling up all around her! From last year’s debut to the release of the classic Painkiller Jane material, everyone will be talking about Jane!

Now, the creative team is reunited – Jimmy Palmiotti, Joe Quesada and Lee Moder – for a specially-priced introductory issue that will allow a wider range of fans to read her, as she goes guns-a-blazin’, and leads directly into Jane’s new series this Spring!

Painkiller Jane is a television film based on the comic book character of the same name. It was first broadcast on the Sci-Fi Channel on 10 December 2005. The film stars Emmanuelle Vaugier as the titular heroine. The film differs significantly from the story of the comic book character.

The movie was a backdoor pilot for a possible television series, which was eventually approved. The Painkiller Jane TV series appears to be a “reboot” of the TV-movie, discarding the film’s backstory and starting anew.

In an interview with Moviepilot, Palmiotti is in progressing on a new film. In November 2016, Deadline reports that Jessica Chastain has signed on to star as Jane Vasko in the big screen with Lotus Entertainment’s Lenny Beckerman producing along with Solipsist Films’ Stephen L’Heureux and Chastain through her Freckle Films banner. Bill Johnson, Jim Seibel, Ara Keshishian and Palmiotti will exec produced the film. In September 2017, Christine Boylan is writing the script.
