Jaka's Story is de vierde grote verhaallijn in de Cerebus-stripserie van de Canadese cartoonist Dave Sim. Oorspronkelijk gepubliceerd in Cerebus # 114-136, gaat de verhaallijn voort in de nasleep van de gebeurtenissen van "Kerk en Staat" en de verovering van de stad Iest door de fascistische matriarchale Cirinisten.
Jaka's Story is the fourth major storyline in Canadian cartoonist Dave Sim's Cerebus comics series.
Originally published in Cerebus #114-136, the storyline continues in the wake of the events of "Church and State" and the conquest of the city of Iest by the fascist matriarchal Cirinists. The story focuses on Cerebus, his longtime love interest Jaka, Jaka's husband Rick, Oscar (a stand-in for the real life Oscar Wilde), and Jaka's employer Pud (a tavern owner who employs Jaka) as they struggle against the repressive fascist regime of the Cirinists. In particular, the free spirited Jaka defies the Cirinist ban on dancing, which leads to ruin for Rick, Jaka, and Cerebus.
The book flashes back and forth between Jaka's lonely, aristocratic childhood up to her twelfth birthday, and the "present" time of the main Cerebus storyline. The "present" sections are told in comics form while the "past" portions are told in flowery prose sections, which the reader finds out later are written by Oscar (and are in Sim's imitation of Wilde's writing style), unknown to Jaka and based on what Oscar has heard from Rick.
