We’re still coming to terms with the notion that we’ll probably never get another live-action season of “Marvel’s Jessica Jones.” Thankfully for fans of the hard-hittin’ hard-drinkin’ character will have a new avenue for stories about the New York-based hero.
A brand new ebook and 16-episode audiobook “Marvel’s Jessica Jones: Playing With Fire” is coming to Serial Box later this month!
The series is narrated by voice actress Fryda Wolff (“DC Superfriends” as Poison Ivy, “Avengers Assemble” as Enchantress, and SEVERAL notable video game credits).
“It’s been a pleasure to live in Jessica’s world and feel the weight of her musty jacket through the quality storytelling by the team of authors Serial Box has assembled,” Wolff told Nerdbot.
The writing team is led by best-selling novelist Lauren Beukes, four-time Hugo Award-finalist Elsa Sjunneson, Zoe Quinn (Vertigo’s Goddess Mode), Vita Ayala (Marvel’s Nebula; Age of X), and television writer Sam Beckbessinger.
“Marvel’s Jessica Jones: Playing With Fire“ is the third Marvel title to launch on Serial Box. “Marvel’s Thor: Metal Gods“ and “Marvel’s Black Widow: Bad Blood” are currently also available to listen to or read.
In the series launching on Serial Box, Jessica Jones has made an art of ignoring her particular brand of super-powered trauma. But these days, she’s giving the whole “self-care” thing a try. Seeing a therapist, finding healthier coping mechanisms (read: no business-hours drinking), working toward not wanting to punch things all the time. Maybe even taking the occasional case that won’t eat her alive.
You can check out a sample of the audiobook below, and a sample of the written e-book here.
The first three episodes of “Playing With Fire” will launch on Thursday, May 28th with new episodes releasing in weekly installments. The full 16-episode season season will be available for $9.99, exclusively on the Serial Box apps available on Google Play and the Apple App Store, and through the Serial Box website.
