Free Jessica Jones comic released in advance of Netflix debut


In advance of its debut on Netflix next month, Marvel Entertainment has released a free digital comic for Jessica Jones fans.

The short strip tells the story of Jones’ first meeting with another Netflix hero who calls New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen home: Daredevil. We already knew that there would be some crossover between the two series, so it isn’t so much the storyline here that’s surprising, but the artistic medium.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the comic was created by the team behind Alias, a 2001 comic book series in which Jessica Jones makes her first appearance. Its release comes on the heels of a group of short, teaser trailers, which — among other things — showcase Jones in the aftermath of assaulting a gang of bar room baddies and Jones in the aftermath of assaulting her liver with some good ol’ brown liquor.

Krysten Ritter (Don’t Trust the B**** in Apartment 23) will play the retired super-heroine, but the promos we’ve seen don’t exactly give her a ton of screen time. That said, fans will be grateful for anything Jones-related while they wait to binge on the series.

The 12-page comic is available on ComiXology and Marvel’s digital comic store and Writer Brian Michael Bendis recently took to Tumblr to express his gratitude to the character’s devotees “a big THANK YOU to all of you for your support, excitement and enthusiasm for Jessica and everything else.” Michael Gaydos (illustrations) and David Mack (cover artwork) round out the creative trio behind the project.

Jessica Jones also stars Mike Colter (Men in Black 3), David Tennant (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire), Rachel Taylor (Transformers), and Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix). The show will be available to stream Nov. 20, 2015, and will look to capitalize on the widespread popularity of Daredevil.
