We got our first look at Diane Guerrero as Crazy Jane in the photo below. I hope she will not be as evil-looking as the drawing next to her.
Crazy Jane first appeared in Doom Patrol Volume 2 #19 (February 1989) published by DC Comics written by Grant Morrison and drawn by Richard Case. Crazy Jane doesn’t appeared on the cover of this issue.
We have a promo picture of Crazy Jane in anticipation of February 15 release date.
Diane Guerrero plays the character Crazy Jane. Diane is famous for her roles in Netflix series Orange is the New Black and CW TV show Jane the Virgin.
I read Doom Patrol back in late 1980’s. Doom Patrol was actually in my brother’s collection. We bought comic books Saturday morning and shared our comic books in the afternoon. It was fun afternoon reading comic books back in those days. Pages were much longer and comic books were not as high as today.
You can get a copy of Doom Patrol Volume 2 #19 for $15 to $25 on ebay in the fall 2018. Now you are looking at $20 to $28 for a copy in 2019.
