Marvel is launching a new series of Marvel Digital Originals, with Jessica Jones #1 leading the way.

Jessica Jones was once the costumed super hero known as Jewel, but now she’s a private investigator at her own firm, Alias Investigations. With the Purple Man gone, her relationship with her husband, Luke Cage, and their daughter, Danielle, is better than ever. But in JESSICA JONES #1, her past comes knocking, and when a woman whose case she fumbled winds up dead on her office floor, Jessica goes from private investigator to prime suspect. Can she find the real killer and clear her name?

“Here at Marvel, we could not be more excited for the Marvel Digital Originals,” says Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski. “It’s an innovative new format, perfect for new readers who can come in and get double-sized digital comics. It’s always important for us to strike a balance between new readers and the old school, hardcore fans. And Marvel Digital Originals are perfect for that because not only do they tell stories in continuity with the classic characters, they’re also the perfect gateway for new readers to discover comic shops around the country.”

Marvel also let us know that Cloak and Dagger are also joining the Digital Originals line with the first two chapters of Shades of Gray.  Considering the digital comic market held steady at $90 million in 2017, while the overall industry fell 6.7%, I think we are going to start to see more publisher step forward with initiatives to bring digital-first comics to readers.

Both Cloak and Dagger #1 and Jessica Jones #1 are available today via the Marvel Digital Comics Shop and
