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.

This Marxist fantasia will be unveiled at this year's Comic-Con, after Wiedlin's farewell tour with the Go-Go's and it will include a CD of new music apparently recorded in the Lady Robotika persona.
This is not Wiedlin's first experience as a fantasy character, however. Look:
