oh right, and in other comics news

Marvel is teaming up with Netflix to make four 13-ep series, starring Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage, respectively.

At this point I've about decided I just don't care about comics stories outside the medium of comics, but nonetheless this seems pretty cool. The street-level heroics of these guys interest me a lot more than the Avengers' saving-the-world shtick or the bloodless, not-shady-at-all bureaucracy SHIELD seems to have turned out to be (she says, having only watched the pilot). Also, series starring a lady! Series starring a black guy! Feats that neither Marvel nor DC have managed in quite a long while.

JESSICA JONES?!!!! :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD!

Like, the ONE comic series I own, from years ago, is Alias (missing issues 2 and 3, iirc) and then the bit-less-awesome follow-on Pulse. She's fantastic.

I thought perhaps you would be pleased. :D However, as soon as I read the news, I went to go reread that old series, and unfortunately Marvel has not uploaded that series to their archive. So no Alias for me.
