UPDATE: An earlier version of this story classified Kelly Thompson and Mattia de Lulis' Jessica Jones series as a three-issue miniseries. Marvel has since clarified this is a three-part story arc for an ongoing series.
Now we know what Marvel Comics was hinting at with yesterday's cryptic "Blind Spot" teaser image; Jessica Jones is back, with a brand new series and an all-new creative team.
Available now on comiXology, the super-powered private eye's first adventure following the departure of co-creator Brian Michael Bendis from Marvel arrives courtesy of her new creative team of Kelly Thompson and Mattia de Lulis. The ongoing series, which launched today with a double-sized issue, is the first in a new initiative dubbed Marvel Digital Originals.
“There’s a huge audience out there -- not just on the Netflix front but on ABC, Freeform, Hulu, etc. -- that experience these characters digitally,” editor Nick Lowe told IGN. “In fact, it was hard not to notice when characters like Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist were some of our biggest sellers in the digital marketplace. That was the inspiration for the Kaare Andrews/Afu Chan’s Iron Fists digital strategy and this next big step for us.”
Check out the cover art and official synopsis for Jessica Jones: Blind Spot below.
