Jessica Jones Is Returning to Marvel Comics This Fall
Jessica Jones' profile is sky-high after her critically acclaimed Netflix series, but she hasn't returned to comics since her original Alias run (with the exception of Marvel's digital prequel comic for the series). Now, Jessica is finally getting her own series again, and according to creator Brian Michael Bendis, it will have the same creators as the series that has become a modern classic.

Bendis told io9 that a new Jessica Jones comic series is in development, and that the entire Alias team is coming back, which includes artist and co-creator Michael Gaydos, and artist David Mack, who will illustrate the covers. 

Opening quote
"It's because I looked around and said, "Oh the Marvel Universe has shifted so much in the last years since we did that book. There's a lot of secrets, there's actually a lot of stuff from events and things that people don't know about and Jessica can uncover them in really interesting ways. Actually I found a way to get her back to her sullen, private eye self that doesn't rip up everything we did to heal the character. That got very exciting to me."
Closing quote

Jessica has been mostly sidelined in the recent Luke Cage and Iron Fist comics, but will take center stage once again in her own series. Luke Cage will probably feature prominently, however, since it will heavily focus on the difficulty of raising a child (their baby daughter Danielle) while also fulfilling dangerous superhero duties. However, it's unclear what the state of their relationship will be, since Bendis claims that the new series finds Jessica in a place where "all of her relationships are altered":

Opening quote
"You're going to find out about it in the first issue. We're going to open up a book where Jessica's world has blown up in her face. She's at a place you'll least expect her. You're going to find all of her relationships have altered. And we're slowly going to find out why. I do like writing Jessica where we have to figure out 'why this has happened,"
Closing quote

Here is the official synopsis:
