New Jessica Jones Comic Series from Original Creators Coming This October


Marvel is knocking it out of the park with their Netflix additions to the MCU and “Jessica Jones” was seriously amazing. While we wait for the second season to premiere, the super heroine with a alcohol problem is returning to comics in a new Marvel series from original creators Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos, according to IGN.

Bendis said he did not want to premiere the comic series back in November with the series, rather, he wanted to wait until he could get the entire original team back together, including cover artist David Mack. Bendis told IGN:

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 [Jessica Jones’] 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.

In the comic book, we see Jessica where her comic, Alias, left off. Unlike her Netflix translation, this Jessica and long-time romantic partner Luke Cage have been raising their daughter, Danielle.

Having a child completely changes your perspective on everything, some in obvious ways and some in not-so-obvious ways. Some of them really sneak up on you. Like caring about somebody more than yourself, particularly when you’re very self-involved like Jessica would tend to be, is a big thing … So your perspective changes, and as an investigator and a detective her perspective will change because she’s a mother. I know some people are worried about that baby being dragged like a sack of potatoes that holds down the story or something, but I can think of many ways to tell the story celebrate this part of her life and at the same time complicates it to a degree that a lot of people can relate to. I think a lot of people can relate to trying to ‘do it all.’

Despite the current obstacles, in the Netflix world Jessica and Luke are not yet together though they will eventually end up finding their way back to each other.
