The last time we saw her, Jessica was in a good place - married to Luke Cage, they had a baby and were active members of the New Avengers.
But Jessica isn't the kind of character who manages "being happy" well - so as this series begins, she's in all kinds of trouble (though it's not clear exactly what is going on).
The first issue reunites the original creative team - writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Michael Gaydos - and they pick up right where they left off, serving up an adult, street-level, grime-and-all portrait of a woman struggling to survive despite (possibly) sinister forces gathered against her.
Oh, and she also gets hired for some detective work - and runs into some old friends.
It's a great start for the new series, and it really feels like old times. The original series was dark and edgy (like the TV show), and it's right back there again.
