As a part of their ongoing Marvel Legacy launch, Marvel continues to shake up the creative teams on what appear to be core books moving forward.
Today the New-York-based publisher announced the creative teams for the relaunched Iron Fist and Jessica Jones series. Both characters have taken starring turns in their own Netflix original series, with varying levels of critical acclaim. Given the high profile being provided to both as Marvel Television ramps up for the forthcoming Defenders series, Marvel Comics is going to some of their most trusted talents.
Brian Michael Bendis, who first popularized the hard-bitten Jessica Jones in the pages of Alias will return to the title beginning with issue 13, where he will be joined by artist Michael Gaydos.
On Iron Fist, writing chores will be tackled by Ed Brisson, while art will be handled by Mike Perkins.
Marvel has also provided a handy renumbering chart to help fans keep track of how the series is being ordered in the new system.
