    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Mar 8, 2017

    Jessica Jones continues to be one of the best books Marvel is releasing. If you haven't been following it I highly recommend picking up the first six issues as this book is definitely one that shouldn't be missed. Read Full Review

    The story itself isn't that bad, it's actually well thought out and well written, it's just not what I would call a Jessica Jones story. It was a very odd way to end this arc, I understand that things have to end with some loose ends to propel the character into the next adventure and arc but, this seems to be too much. There are other ways to move the character and story forward without relegating the main character to the back seat. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Mar 9, 2017

    As much as it carved a niche for itself, Jessica Jones continues to feel like another issue of Alias in part due to Michael Gaydos and Matt Hollingsworth's consistency. They shine in this element as much as they did back in the early 2000s and have brought some new flourishes with them here, like the explosion of color when characters get hit, marking the impact.

    Fortress of Solitude - Rick Austin Mar 13, 2017

    It's impossible to recommend Jessica Jones #6 to everybody. It doesn't work that way. But if you're looking for the pulse of the real Marvel U, you'll find it here. Read Full Review

    GearWERKZ - Agasicles Stamas Mar 13, 2017

    After an issue that was pretty much all talking heads, Bendis hits back with an issue that is a bit Ocean's Eleven, mixed in with the A-Teram, and a smidge of Tango and Cash. And each step of the way, the con feels real. So much so that at the end of the issue, you are not sure who used who and who got conned. It's a wonderful setup for what should now lead into the story of what happens to Jessica's marriage to Luke and custody of their child. Make no mistake. Things are about to get real. And I cannot think of a writer better than Bendis to helm that tale. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Mar 16, 2017

    Equally troubling for Jessica is how dismissively Carol takes her question concerning the murder of her client and the killer's theory about the Marvel heroes killing billions of lives. Neither admitting the truth nor refuting it, the worm that destroyed that man's reality seems to be working its way into Jessica's brain. Now further disconnected from her husband and daughter, and with her name still not entirely cleared, where might these thoughts lead? And what's next for Jessica Jones, P.I.? Worth a look.

    Jessica Jones has always had a bit of a rough time as a superhero. Though she loves her husband, Luke Cage, she also keeps him at arm's length and tends not to trust him with information. Jessica Jones also highlights the volatile nature of relationships and the toll it takes on each person. However, Jessica also shows that she is capable of loving others and that her priorities are different now that she has a daughter. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Mar 13, 2017

    Leading into this issue, this series was on a high point and it wavered just a little bit. The ending it incredibly satisfying but aside from the resolution, the book struggles. Storylines are wrapped up quickly, the dialogue isn't at the same quality and there is an unnecessary scene at the beginning. However, the lead up was so good that it made this issue still enjoyable and I can't wait to see what comes next. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Jordan Calhoun Mar 9, 2017

    In its short run, Jessica Jones has given us glimpses of potential, just enough to keep us reading in hopes that the plot will reach the caliber of its lead character, but has left us with little more than broken promises. Jessica is still likable as the misanthrope whose bad luck will never let put together a healthy life, but even her endearment as the emotionally-stunted work-in-progress hasn't been enough to move this series closer to its potential. Our only legitimate hope, it seems now, are the occasional long-form dialogue scenes that remind us why we love this character, and have us forget, at least for a moment, why we're not enjoying this book.

    Kabooooom - Brandon Griffin Mar 9, 2017

    As a whole,Jessica Jones has been an enjoyable run. This issue doesn't particularly hit the ceiling readers were hoping for, but it certainly maintains the floor. It's well worth a read, despite the underwhelming sense of familiarity. There are more interesting things happening away from Jessica's shattered home life; which makes it easy to stay on board.

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Mar 8, 2017

    The story that he is drawing is mediocre, but Michael Gaydos continues to be a solid artist of body language and showing the flaws of superheroes beneath their bright costumes. If there's any artist who can tell a story in a rhythmic grid about someone completely ruining their life with all the messy emotions in between, it's him. He deserves better than Jessica Jones #6, which is a conclusion to an arc that had the clear purpose of breaking up Jessica and Luke in way that doesn't feel earned and is buried underneath a cacophony of subplots and countless panels of The Spot punching people.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Mar 11, 2017

    A potentially interesting storyline is wiped clean in what appears to be an effort to save Captain Marvel's reputation " but Captain Marvel's name isn't on the cover of this comic. Jessica Jones suffers for a weird retcon. Read Full Review

    There are ways to fuse hard-boiled detective noir with the wider Marvel Universe, but so far this series has only found haphazard success. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Emma Houxbois Mar 8, 2017

    Jessica Jones is supposedly a passion project for Bendis and Gaydos, but after six issues the experience is best summed up as driving across a city in rush hour traffic to get a coffee from Starbucks when there was one at the end of the block. Read Full Review
