Kelly Thompson and Mattia de Lulis team up to tell the tale of a cold case from Jones’ past — one she screwed up in typical Jessica Jones fashion. When her client winds up dead, Jones ends up as the chief suspect.
The comic is the first in a new line of “Marvel Digital Originals,” not to be confused with comiXology Originals, which have featured several Marvel characters in the past.
“There’s a huge audience out there — not just on the Netflix front but on ABC, Freeform, Hulu, etc. — that experience these characters digitally,” Marvel 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.”
Lowe said Thompson was suggested by Jessica Jones creator Brian Michael Bendis for the project, after Thompson wrote the character during her run on Hawkeye.
The first, double-sized issue of the
