These comics will join the already in-progress Cloak and Dagger and Jessica Jones ongoing series as part of Marvel’s new Marvel Digital Originals line. These are digital-first comics and– though they take place in the normal 616 universe– they seem to be aimed, in subject matter and format, at fans of Marvel’s TV properties.
“MDOs are double-sized digital issues (40 pages) that are released once per month, with every three issues forming a complete story. While they don’t come out all at once like a Netflix show, the accelerated pace of release is meant to cater to those who discovered these Marvel heroes on TV and want to binge their comics in big chunks. After completing a story arc, each series will be printed and sold in comic shops.”
