Brian Michael Bendis is the co-creator of the Jessica Jones character, so naturally, he’s seen a lot in regards to the upcoming adaptation on Netflix. To be clear, he’s not a part of the show, but they do show him stuff to ensure it meets his vision of what he made. During an AMA, he talked about why he’s been quiet on what he’s seen:
“I know I’ve been very low-key on talking about to Jessica Jones TV show but I think I have to stop doing that because I can’t hold it any longer. I’m going to burst.
The show is so good. I have seen the first couple of episodes and because I didn’t work on it directly I can say this with full no ego fanfare: I loved it!! and believe me, I was going to be the hardest on it, harder than any of you.
Jessica is a part of my DNA. A bad Jessica Jones show would have hurt me deeply. 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.”
So there you go, he’s excited! And he thinks it’ll rock. Do you?
