Jessica Jones just might be one of the best, multi-dimensional, whole-cloth characters to be created for the comic book medium in the past 20 years. From her introduction in her critically-acclaimed comic book series Alias by writer Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos to her turn as one of the Avengers to starring in a Peabody award-winning Netflix series, the hard-boiled hero has become a fan favorite.
With that in mind, it’s little wonder that Marvel would choose to thrust Jessica back into the spotlight with a brand-spankin’ new comic book series, brought to life by Bendis and Gaydos. Check out these preview pages of Jessica Jones #1, hitting comic shops next month!
Jessica Jones #1, written by Brian Michael Bendis with Michael Gaydos on art, hits comic shops October 12th from Marvel Comics.
