"Our goal was to create something that was authentic as Jessica [Jones], but completely different in every way. There's a history in comics, where if someone has a hit or a genre passion, they'll do a variation of that hit in a creator-owned book. I get that instinct, and I won't say if I've done that or I haven't done that (in the past). But in this particular instance, Jessica has become so out-of-our-hands iconic that we had to make sure whatever we put next in the world was unique and as inviting.” -- Brian Michael Bendis

"My film student teenage daughter and I were having a very long conversation about the Coen brothers and why there’s always a force at work underneath the plot in every movie…always some underpinning of the unexplained. While these stories were being told to me and while I was doing the research, there’s so much spirituality involved, so much unspoken spirituality, it affected the storyline. As we got to issues 4 and 5, it will reveal itself more…the conversation about how people in life feel like there are forces working beneath them. The hand of God or spirituality in their daily lives, and it’s not written about a lot in comics because it immediately goes to a religious place, but that’s not necessarily what we’re talking about here." -- Brian Michael Bendis

"That was another thing I was happy to get rid of: Albinos always being the creepy assassin. I read an article about how there are no lead albino hero or characters. So as we're talking about representation in comics and media, then there seems to be a good one to fix. I was happy to course correct as much as we can. Pearl's a very unique person; no else has this." -- Brian Michael Bendis

"If I could go back I'd represent those Yakuza characters [from the 'King of Hell's Kitchen' storyline] differently. There's more I could have done but I was very focused on Matt Murdock, but here I am with more years under my belt. I thought of Daredevil when I was doing Pearl. Then, doing research, I woman was telling me a story last year in San Francisco. She was just a person telling me a story of her life and her dealing with Yakuza-tinged organized crime and it had so much different and fascinating color that I was a bit embarrassed by the Yakuza story that I had told in Daredevil." -- Brian Michael Bendis

"Michael Gaydos and I were talking about tattoos and he said, 'There’s something about one of my children I never told you about.' He has a very fascinating skin condition where if he scars, it will fill in when he’s upset. You can actually see the scar fill in. He talked to another tattoo artist who had tattooed someone with that condition with an empty gun, and you could only see the tattoo when they were upset or excited. It was such an interesting way to approach that character and I thought, 'Now we have a character who is so unique, who we’ve never seen before,' and it went into this beautiful stew of everything I would ever want to write about that was new and exciting—and I couldn’t believe Michael had the missing piece right in his own home. It makes you feel like…that’s what we’re supposed to be doing." -- Brian Michael Bendis

"As the legacy of Jessica Jones left our hands and became this Netflix pop-culture icon (which I can’t take credit for other than just being a proud dad), it said to me that whatever we do next has to be just as dense emotionally but completely different. Pearl is an assassin with an albino skin condition. When she’s upset, patterns start to form on her skin that she’s done to herself through an art form her mother taught her. She’s a very unique character, like Jessica Jones, and I’m hoping people will just trust us and meet her to see what’s so unique about her." -- Brian Michael Bendis

One of the more bittersweet things for me with Bendis leaving Marvel for DC was his farewell to Jessica Jones. Fortunately he's doing a new series with Michael Gaydos at DC and it looks pretty good. Here's a new cover which has a better look at who the main character is.

"I can’t believe how popular the show is and how popular she is, genuinely popular, outside of the comic book world. It’s hilarious, I’ve been the co-creator of Jessica Jones since 2001 but only in the last couple years does that turn heads and impress people outside of our world, and it’s kind of funny.

But all of that means nothing compared to how it’s almost the same feeling I have, like the fatherly pride I have, for my children when they do well outside of the home. When they come home and have succeeded in whatever they tried unrelated to me and my wife, that’s how I feel about Jessica. I feel like everyday I hear how she’s doing in college, or how she’s doing at her new job, and I’m very proud of her. It’s quite a unique feeling. It’s an immense amount of pride that I feel for her and what she means to people. " -- Brian Michael Bendis

"The relationship they had was very unique to Purple Man. That’s not what his relationships to the, sadly, hundreds of other peoples he’s accosted have been, so that is something to consider as well. Does he, in his messed up head, love her? That was always the question in the first series too. It’s a screwed up question, and it’s a screwed up answer no matter what, but that’s the kind of book we’re telling. It’s for adults by adults, and we’re going to ask tough questions and see what kind of answers we get. " -- Brian Michael Bendis

"The Purple Man’s psychology is one of my favorite things to write about because here’s a man who can get someone to do or say whatever he wants, but I think everybody knows you don’t want people to do and say whatever you want. You want them to do or say what you want them to say because you want them to want it. So after years of manipulations the psychology of someone who’s just missing whole parts of the human experience–which is someone liking you back, someone wanting you back, and knowing if you genuinely can muster someone’s love–these things get you after awhile. He’s alone on a desert island, he has no friends, he has no love, and the people who he makes his friends or love, he manipulates them. We’re even going to show that if someone genuinely finds him interesting he will abuse them. He doesn’t allow himself to have a real relationship. The perspective of his world is wholly unique, I think that’s what puts him up there with the Joker and Magneto. We can show you his perspective and it’s unique and it might make you–not sympathize, but maybe empathize with and that makes the story more interesting. For all the horror the fact that you can see where it’s coming from doesn’t make it better, in fact it makes it worse.” -- Brian Michael Bendis
