The Go-Go's Jane Wiedlin Becomes Sexy Comics Heroine
Billboard reports that Jane Wiedlin, now a NorCal resident but forever associated with the sunny SoCal Go-Go's, will become a sexy comic-book heroine called Lady Robotika.
The namesake comic book, a collaboration with Simpsons' artist Bill "No, I'm not Grant" Morrison "stars Wiedlin herself as a rocker who is abducted by aliens, experimented on in her sleep, and transformed into a cyborg.
