Tampa Bay Comic Con's first female celebrity guest also happens to be Netflix's toughest super heroine. 

Krysten Ritter, star of Marvel's Jessica Jones, will appear alongside Ian McDiarmid (Emperor Palpatine), Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon of The Walking Dead), Jack Gleeson (King Geoffrey of Game of Thrones), Ray Park (Darth Maul), and Iwan Rheon (Ramsay Bolton of Game of Thrones). 

The Jessica Jones series, which aired its first season last fall, is an expansion of the Marvel Universe that includes Netflix's Daredevil, the recently released Deadpool, and the Avengers series.

She's a tough talking detective from Hell's Kitchen, New York, who fights crime and super baddies with her super strength, superb wit, and "guided falling" abilities. 

Ritter will be posing for photos and signing autographs for $50 each on Saturday, Aug. 6 and Sunday, Aug. 7 at the Tampa Convention Center, 333 S. Franklin St. in Tampa. 

Tampa Bay Comic Con tickets are available online with 3-Day passes retailing at $60. Single day tickets are $30 per day for Friday and Sunday and $40 on Saturday.
