Thanks in part to the popularity of Netflix's Jessica Jones series, the character is now getting her own new ongoing comic book series.

Marvel Comics announced the new series, which will reunite Jessica Jones' creators Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos, as well as cover artist David Mack. The three men previously worked together on the Jessica Jones-based Alias, which was released in 2001 and served as the primary inspiration for the Netflix series.

Although Marvel has considered a new series dedicated to the character for some time, this news comes after the success of the Netflix show that made Jessica Jones a household name. Now, the whiskey-swigging superhero-turned-detective gets some brand new story arcs that could potentially offer Netflix some ideas for the second season of the show, which the streaming service confirmed in January. Jessica will also show up on Netflix's The Defenders series.

Jessica's last appearance in comic books occurred in Spider-Man #5. In that story, Jessica investigated Miles Morales at the behest of his grandmother. However, things are going to get a little crazier for the detective in her new book.

"We're going to open up a book where Jessica's world has blown up in her face," Bendis told IGN in a phone interview. "She's at a place you'll least expect her. You're going to find all of her relationships have altered. And we're slowly going to find out why. I do like writing Jessica where we have to figure out 'why this has happened.'" 

Jessica also now has a child with Luke Cage, which changes the dynamic of the character from what fans have previously seen, both in comics and on TV.

"This is not the safest place for a baby," Bendis said. "So your perspective changes, and as an investigator and a detective her perspective will change because she's a mother. I know some people are worried about that baby being dragged like a sack of potatoes that holds down the story or something, but I can think of many ways to tell the story [to] celebrate this part of her life and at the same time complicates it to a degree that a lot of people can relate to. I think a lot of people can relate to trying to 'do it all.' Lord knows I can."

Jessica Jones #1 arrives in comic book shops and online in October.
