Brian Michael Bendis has announced a pair of creator-owned series launching through the new DC Comics-published version of his Jinxworld imprint, via The Hollywood Reporter.

The first series, Pearl, focuses on a Yakuza tattoo artist who falls in love with her enemy, and features interior art from Bendis' Alias co-creator Michael Gaydos with covers from David Mack.

"We knew it had to match what people perceive Jessica to be and that what and we came up with had to be an equally, if not more complex character in Pearl," Bendis said of the series.

Meanwhile, Mack himself will provide interiors for a second creator-owned series titled Cover, which focuses on a comic book creator who is recruited as a spy.

"Who has a better cover story than comic book artists and writers, who get to travel the world and no one is actually paying attention to what they're doing?" Bendis explained. "David and I have had a lot of travels over the last few years and we are going to have a lot of fun examining the world of espionage through the world of Comic-Con."

As for Bendis' previous Jinxworld titles, several #1 issues of Bendis' previous creator owned titles are available for free on the Vertigo app as well as readdc.com and Amazon Kindle. The titles available include Brilliant, Powers, Takio, Scarlet, and The United States of Murder, Inc.

Cover and Pearl are expected to launch this fall.
