Brent Anderson has never impressed me with his ability to ink his own pencils, as his smooth style takes on a crude, less refined appearance when he provides the inks, and this month's issue does little to change my opinion. However, I will concede that with Astro City issue's shipping once every blue moon, I'm glad to see Brent Anderson has found a home on this title, and his photo-realistic style lends itself quite nicely to the world of Jessica Jones. I also like the fact that Brent Anderson understands the fact that Jessica Jones is a rather ordinary looking woman, and that in this issue she actually looks like a person who has been through the wringer and is clinging desperately at any information that she can get her hands on. There's also a lovely sequence where we see Jessica goes through the numbers on her phone, where the art manages to perfectly sell her growing sense of frustration. I also loved the Jim Steranko inspired cover design. Read Full Review
