"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

"I live in a world where there is great protest. In Portland, even though we started this book eight years ago, it was because there was so much protest here. The idea that a revolution would start here did not seem crazy. It wouldn't shock us. Years have gone by and the protests have gotten more intense and the city politics around those protests have gotten intense in a way that I couldn't even perceive. It fueled the idea, the over-the-top idea, that a protest could go so far to shut a city down and paralyze the government that is supposed to be dealing with it. It was one of those ideas that sounded crazy when I started, and more and more, it just sounds like anything in the world doesn’t sound that crazy [anymore]. I started with, 'what would be the most insane idea I could think of that I could go to thinking I would be years ahead of the curve?’ Yet I still feel it’s not that ahead of the curve." -- 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
