Brian Michael Bendis hand-picked a writer to take over ‘Jessica Jones’, and she’s “amazing”

“Truth told I was already leaving Jessica after [The Purple Man arc].”

As writer Brian Michael Bendis prepares for the next stage of his career, fans of his excellent ongoing Marvel series such as The Defenders and Jessica Jones are left wondering what will come of them.

Over on his Tumblr page, Bendis made note that he was originally ending his run on Jones anyway, whether or not he was leaving Marvel, after the current Purple Man arc wraps up. No word yet on whoever the new writer is, but Bendis revealed that he chose her, and that she’s “amazing.”
