Marvel Comics has announced a brand new Jessica Jones comic book series today from original character creators Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos.
David Mack is also returning to covers and you can check out his art for the first issue below...
This all-new series has been in the works for some time now, even before the launch of the popular Netflix series starring Krysten Ritter. However, that doesn’t mean that the duo is changing the comic to be more like the show. Fans should know that the show and the comic take place in very different universes, so don’t count on Hellcat, Nuke and the rest of Jessica’s quirky neighbours to suddenly start popping up in the new comic.
Bendis did open up about what fans can expect from the debut issue however, and it sounds as though Marvelites across the globe will really enjoy this one!
Speaking with IGN Bendis says: “We’re going to open up a book where Jessica’s world has blown up in her face. She’s at a place you’ll least expect her. You’re going to find all of her relationships have altered. And we’re slowly going to find out why. I do like writing Jessica where we have to figure out ‘why this has happened…I’ve worked with other artists on Jessica and always enjoyed it, but in my mind she never looks and feels and breathes and smells more like Jessica than when Michael draws her. Between [Michael’s art] and David Mack, who is one of my closest friends who did all the covers, that is the signature in which people think of her, of those visuals. So having them all back together and having everyone be just a little bit better at their jobs — I think Michael is a better illustrator and David is a better painter — and I have to rise to the occasion and meet them.”
The last time fans encountered Jessica Jones in the pages of Marvel Comics, she was investigating Miles Morales on behalf of his grandmother. Thus, it's clear that fans will find to private eye in a very different situation when the debut issue drops this coming fall.
