Jessica Jones Gets a Free Comic to Tie Her Into Marvel's Netflix Universe
Premiering November 20th, Jessica Jones, Marvel's next Netflix series will continue to introduce the 'street-level' heroes of Hell's Kitchen, New York. This hero isn't as recognizable as her counterparts. As part of MAX (Marvel's first unrated comic line) Alias featured Jessica Jones' downward spiral after a serious trauma forced her to hang up her cape and become a private investigator, but the series only ran for 28 issues between 2001 and 2004.
Now, in order to help audiences catch up with the lesser known hero, Marvel got the original creators (Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos) to create a free 12-page issue connecting Jessica Jones to the over-arching MCU.
