    You may argue I'm biased, but I would counter that with there's a reason I'm biased, the comic is good. You may argue that I'm an “SJW” and only like it because it pander to my liberal sensibilities, but that's not true, it's just a good comic. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Apr 5, 2017

    Jessica Jones and Kate Bishop have some similarities. Obviously, they’re both private investigators and their snark registers on a magnitude that would cause Professor Frink’s sarcasm detector to explode, but they also have different energies. Jess is more unfiltered, while Kate is a little more willing to hold off and get the lay of the land before going in guns a-blazing. So it takes a lot to make those energies meld together, and here it’s a triumph with regards to the writing of Kelly Thompson and the art of Michael Walsh and Jordie Bellaire that they're able to pull it off so well. In short: this issue really is the best of both worlds. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Apr 6, 2017

    With any guest spot, there's always the worry that the guest star may overshadow or unnecessarily undermine the lead character. And thankfully, it's a concern that's unfounded here, as Kelly Thompson is able to construct the perfect vehicle for both Kate Bishop and Jessica Jones to coexist. Read Full Review
