Earlier in the week, Marvel made the surprise debut of a brand new Jessica Jones series to kick off a brand new initiative known as Marvel Digital Originals which will focus on giving series to characters that have gained popularity through Marvel TV as of late. Now the publisher has revealed what other characters are getting digital books.
As reported by IGN, joining Jessica Jones (and a previously launched Cloak and Dagger series that has been added to the line) will be Luke Cage by Anthony Del Col & Jahnoy Lindsay & Ian Herring with Declan Shalvey on covers, Iron Fist: Phantom Limb by Clay McLeod Chapman & Guillermo Sanna & Lee Loughridge with Khoi Pham covers, and Daughters of the Dragon (with Misty Knight & Colleen Wing) by Jed MacKay & Travel Foreman.
Each of the MDO are ongoing double-sized 40-page issues that are released monthly with every three issues completing what can be counted as a six-issue story, as regular issues count around 20 pages. AT that point they’ll be collected and released in stores in trade format before the next story begins.
Check out the covers and solicitations below.
