Brian Michael Bendis who co-created Jessica Jones, has kept relatively quiet about Netflix's Jessica Jones series, since it was announced. Until now, after seeing some of the show, Bendis had plenty to say when asked recently on Tumblr.
"The show is so good," Bendis wrote on his Tumblr. "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!!"
He then went to say that he would have been harder on the show than anyone else, since he said that Jones is "part of my DNA."
"A bad Jessica Jones show would have hurt me deeply," Bendis added.
Bendis also said that while the show very much stands on its own, it still feels like it exists in the same world as Netflix's Daredevil.
"(It shows) 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."
And according to Bendis it's respectful to the source material: "It is faithful and lively and everything that I could personally have wanted from the show." Bendis described.
The compliments didn't even end there. Bendis went on to also praise the show's stars:
"Krysten Ritter is soooo good. And Michael Colter. Wait until you see Michael Colter. The casting of Luke Cage, in my opinion, and have said this to everyone behind the scenes, is as strong and spot on as the casting of (Robert Downey Jr. as) Tony Stark. It's probably the hardest to cast and they got it. Perfect."
Marvel's Jessica Jones is expected to debut later this year on Netflix.
