We may not have time to review every book on our pull-lists but we do aim to provide a snapshot of what's been released over the past week, encompassing the good, the bad, and those that lie somewhere in between.
Writer: Brian Michael Bendis

Matt C: More superb character work really elevates this title up to the same level as its predecessor. There’s believable, authentic emotion coursing through the book, the interactions between the main players feel genuine and therefore more affecting. It’s not primarily a character piece though, and as if to emphasise that, the plot throws in a very clever twist that is perfectly timed, opening up a new set of possibilities while amending our perspective on what’s come before. And just when you think you’ve sussed where things are going now, Bendis shows he still has more than a few tricks left up his sleeve. Gaydos and Hollingsworth bring warmth and grit to the visuals, and really, if you have an interest in the darker, more ‘adult’ corners of the contemporary Marvel Universe, then Jessica Jones should really be on your pull-list. 9/10
