Earlier this week, Jessica Jones’ Creator Brian Michael Bendis revealed two new individual Jinxworld comics at Emerald City Comic Con. For each title, the writer will be reunited with two of his favorite artists.
For the first time since they created Jessica Jones, Brian Michael Bendis and artist Michael Gaydos will be working together. The project, titled Pearl, will tell a story of a talented tattoo artist (Pearl) as she falls in love with a counterpart from a rival Yakuza faction.
The other new installment in the Jinxworld series sees the award-winning creative team of Bendis and David Mack (Kabuki, Jessica Jones, Powers) reunite. Based on a true story, Cover surrounds an intelligence community that figures out a traveling band of social misfits that make comic books are an exact match to the profiles of candidates recruited for intelligence and counterintelligence gathering.
“I’m BEYOND excited to announce these new titles at Emerald City Comic Con,” said Bendis. “The show has always stayed true to its comics roots and that makes it a perfect place to talk anything Jinxworld, especially new titles I’m working on with creators like Michael and David whom I value and respect so highly.”
Alongside this news, Bendis revealed that that more than 150 Jinxworld periodicals and collected editions are available are available now for digital purchase and download through platforms such as readdc.com, the Vertigo app for iOS, Comixology and Amazon Kindle, with more platforms to follow.
