Up and Coming Females #9: Jade Fontaine

Jade Fontaine

PVP is one of the funniest up and coming comic books out there, so it is only fitting that Jade Fontaine, the lead female character be included in my up and coming females list.

The female staffer amongst a group of males, Jade is a writer for PVP, a gaming magazine. She is the ultimate girl geek, hopelessly hot but into gaming as much as any hardcore guy. Dubiously, she dates Brent Sienna, one of her fellow employees.

Creator Scott Kurtz brings a great sense of humor amongst realistic situations. His portrayal of Jade is both flattering and true. I especially like that Jade's reactions mirror mine many times. She is given a persona that female readers can relate to and empathise with.

I see great things ahead for Jade. She is one of the female characters to watch. If you haven't checked out PVP yet, give it a look. Amongst the RPG's and newest video game releases there is a sense of humanity. Kurtz has nailed it, and his way with the readers only serves to enhance my opinion of the book.

Jade definitely is a character to watch.
