The P.L.A.I.N. Janes

by Cecil Castellucci and Jim Rugg. New York, NY: DC Comics. 2007

This book has wonderfully faceted characters who deal with trauma (one of the Janes survived a terrorist attack) through friendship and art - in the hopes of literally making the world a more beautiful place.

Wonderful faceted characters deal with trauma through friendship and introducing art throughout their neighborhood- in the hopes of literally making the world a more beautiful place. Unfortunately not everyone agrees with their art or methods --- at least not initially.
