‘Jessica Jones’ Leads New Marvel Story From Serial Box

It wasn’t that long ago that we talked to Sarah Natochenny, the narrator for Marvel’s Black Widow Bad Blood for Serial Box. You can read or listen to that great Marvel story right now, but there is already another one on the way. Marvel’s Jessica Jones: Playing With Fire comes out on May 28th, and will release the first three of 16 episodes.

This time, the story is narrated by voice actress Fryda Wolff. The writing team is led by best-selling novelist Lauren Beukes, four-time Hugo Award-finalist Elsa Sjunneson, Zoe Quinn (Vertigo’s Goddess Mode), Vita Ayala (Marvel’s Nebula; Age of X), and television writer Sam Beckbessinger.

What’s this story about? Here’s the synopsis: “Jessica Jones has made an art of ignoring her particular brand of super-powered trauma. But these days, she’s giving the whole “self-care” thing a try. Seeing a therapist, finding healthier coping mechanisms (read: no business-hours drinking), working toward not wanting to punch things all the time. Maybe even taking the occasional case that won’t eat her alive.

A simple missing persons case seems like just the ticket. But when a boy’s body turns up in what looks like a cut-and-dried OD, Jessica can’t let it go and dives headlong into an obsessive search for answers.”

So if you’re missing the Jessica Jones Netflix series, this feels like it will scratch that itch for you? Serial Box was kind enough to release a sample for you to hear as well.
