Jonesy's plan to make two teens from opposite sides of the social strata fall in love has backfired spectacularly, leaving them happy as clams and ruining Jonesy's chance at attending the biggest show of the year!

    Jonesy #2 keeps the pace of the first issue while still showing progress for both the characters of Jonesy and Susan as they turn from enemies to friends over the course of the issue. Along with the series normalizing queerness, it also is refreshing to see a series lead by two young women of color without ever resorting to stereotypes and to see such a realistic and fun take on teenage crushes. The art is still gorgeous and on point, especially with the way Quinn gets to expand the color palette from the first issue in really bright and exciting ways. Humphries, Boyle and Quinn have real magic with the series, and Im not just saying that because of Jonesys powers. Read Full Review

    Jonesy #2 is a great all-ages comic that I highly recommend. The story is relatable and theres some great inclusivity that reflects what we need in comics as a whole. While I strongly suggest picking up the first issue, the second stands by itself rather well, so even if you jump on at this point youre sure to have a great time. Read Full Review

    Okay, so, like I said. Great issue. Loved it. But I did have one big problem. Jonesy never tried to make good with the rocker bros. Why didn't she just exchange some of the zines for the hat? They seemed to genuinely like Stuff. This was an opportunity for her to not only make one friend in this issue but three. Instead she solves the problem by making them love gopher pops which they really find repulsive. That'smean, Jonesy. Read Full Review
