Despite the enthusiastic response to Netflix’s Jessica Jones—the whiskey-swigging, doesn’t-give-a-bag-of-dicks Marvel heroine we so dearly needed—she has remained strangely absent from comic-book stands. Now, however, Marvel plans to correct this oversight with an upcoming series featuring Jones as the lead character.

According to Vulture, “Marvel usually prides itself on brand synergy. If a character is getting a big push in a movie or TV show, the higher-ups tend to make sure that same character has a starring role in a comic-book series.” Jessica Jones has proved the peculiar exception to this rule, but at Seattle’s Emerald City Comicon “co-creator, writer Brian Michael Bendis let slip that he’s reuniting with her other co-creator, artist Michael Gaydos” for a new Jones-centric project.

This series serves as a follow-up to Alias, “the early-2000 series that starred and debuted Jessica Jones.” And apparently, the first installment will leave fans’ mouths agape. “I genuinely think you’ll be surprised by what we do in the first issue,” Bendis told the Comicon crowd. “I pitched it actually to Melissa Rosenberg, who runs the TV show, at WonderCon and she said, ‘Really?’”

I’ve never before explored the world of superhero comics, but Jessica Jones may be the agent of change. After all, who can resist a bad bitch rocking a sweet infinity scarf?

I'm Fart and I'm Smunny

Jessica Jones was seriously a game changer in the super hero TV (and film) world. I love super hero shows and movies, but Jessica Jones is a hero that is extremely exceptional. That series felt like something incredibly cathartic for pretty much all women, but especially those who have been a survivor of abusive relationships and/or sexual assault. I will definitely be buying these new comics and I’m so excited for the series. I’m also kinda tipsy (therefore emotional) and seeing this article made me remember my immense love for Jessica Jones because she is amazing. Gonna go rewatch the series and praise her for being amazing now.
