Marvel’s ‘Jessica Jones’ is praised as ‘faithful and lively’

Marvel and Netflix have been very tight-lipped about their new series, Jessica Jones, which forms part of their Defenders series which began with Daredevil. And even though, there is not much we know about it yet (even when Netflix will release it), the co-creator of the Jessica Jones comic character, Brian Michael Bendis did offer his praise about what he witnessed, Comics Alliance reports.

Bendis was asked on his Tumblr whether he was involved with the series, he said he was not but he had seen the first few episodes and found it extremely well done.

“BUT it is faithful and lively and everything that I could personally have wanted from the show.  the mean streets of marvel netflix from a different perspective than matt’s but at the same time… it all fits.  just like the comics on their best day. and just like Netflix DD, the look of the show is cracklin’ noir but with its own palette.”

The official synopsis of Jessica Jones reads: “After a tragic ending to her short-lived super hero stint, Jessica Jones is rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases involving people with extraordinary abilities in New York City.”

It stars Krysten Ritter as the title character, with David Tennant as the villain Zebediah Kilgrave, and Mike Colter as Luke Cage, the future Defender. There has been rumors that other Daredevil characters might cameo.

Marvel’s Jessica Jones will be released on Netflix later in the year.
