Krysten Ritter, the recently cast star of the upcoming Netflix series Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones, is seriously digging the comics her new show is based on.

While speaking to about her role in the new Tim Burton film, Big Eyes, Ritter admits she wasn’t a comic book fan before she was cast as Jessica Jones, but now she can’t put the source material -- Brian Michael Bendis' and Michael Gaydos' acclaimed Marvel comic, Alias -- down.

“I wasn't, but I am now reading the Jessica Jones comics and devouring them. And [I'm] hooked. I don't think I've been so hooked on something since Serial. So now I feel that way about the Jessica Jones series. I can't wait. I mean, as soon as we're done today, that's what I am going to be doing. I'm really excited about Jessica Jones. It's so f**king cool. It's so cool. I can't wait to watch it.”

Ritter had memorable roles on Breaking Bad and Veronica Mars before landing a starring role on Don’t Trust the B---- in Apartment 23. In the Cosmo interview, Ritter also expressed her excitement at working with another female creative, Jessica Jones showrunner Melissa Rosenberg (who wrote for the first four seasons of Dexter, before adapting the Twilight books for those blockbuster films).
