Comical Jane


There has been a flurry in the past week or so of Jane Austen showing up in illustrations and comics and other comicy-type things.

Alert Janeite Dennard noticed a panel in Maira Kalman’s illustrated blog post in the New York Times, called “May It Please the Court,” that mentioned Jane Austen. Scroll down to the panel about Ruth Bader Ginsburg. (And much as we respect Justice Ginsburg, we would still pick Jane Austen as our imaginary BFF.)

Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal gives us The Perfect Man. We would prefer he read the books to us, but we still had a laugh from it. Thanks to new AustenBlog Gentle Reader and Alert Janeite Emily K for the link.

And lastly, Alert Janeite Corinna noticed what might just be the antidote for zombie overload: Pride and Prejudice and Kittens! (That’s been done, actually.)
