We’re a little over a month out from the release of Marvel’s second Netflix series, Jessica Jones, and along with the various teasers they’ve been releasing, they’ve decided to surprise fans today and announce the release of a new, free comic featuring the character. Given that most fans probably aren’t too familiar with Jessica Jones, this is a smart move from both Marvel and Netflix. It’ll help to continue to grow the excitement for the series, while also introducing Jessica to plenty of new fans.

Brian Michael Bendis, the co-creator of Jessica Jones, took to his Tumblr to announce the surprise release today, while also explaining that the new comic takes place in the TV universe.
