    Regardless of how you came to this series, or this character, you do not want to miss out on this arc. This issue sets the stage for something huge and does it in a way that really highlights what these characters are capable of along with the histories they have with one another.

    The issue brings up another fear, as we worry about what will happen to this comic after the upcoming departure of Bendis? That's all we need - something else to be concerned about! Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Jordan Calhoun Dec 28, 2017

    Overall, a dark turn with high stakes turns them up even higher, and the stage is set for a thrilling finale with a lot of potential. I'm all in for this and you should be, too. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Ryne Wiley Dec 31, 2017

    Jessica gets put under the twisted Purple microscope for a majority of the issue, but the cat and mouse game is far from over. The balance of power changes hands several times and the dizzying effects bring the reader into the psychological torment. Combined with some beautiful layouts that escalate the action, this issue is anxiety-inducing, to say the least. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Dec 29, 2017

    Aside from the bizarre sudden immortality of the character (an all-too-convenient plot-point to possibly to allow David Tennant to reprise him on Netflix?), the comic is creepily entertaining while featuring some amusing dark comedy. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Dec 30, 2017

    With a heavy dose of Purple, this was the best issue of this arc. Jessica dropped the ball, big time. We should expect Bendis to go big in his final farewell to one of his most beloved characters. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Dec 27, 2017

    “Purple” is the best arc ofJessica Jonesso far because the stakes have been so personal with Killgrave going after Jessica's family, friends, and mental state instead of trying to kill all the Avengers like in their first meeting in Alias. Jessica Jones#15 is a fairly strong middle chapter of the storyline as Brian Michael Bendis, Michael Gaydos, and Matt Hollingsworth continue to depict Killgrave as a gaslighting abuser with superpowers. They posit the friendship between Jessica and Carol as an equal reaction to him, but this relationship starts to become twisted in the Purple Man's hands. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Patrick Ross Dec 27, 2017

    This arc of Jessica Jones, when collected, will no doubt stand as one of my favorite stories in recent memory. However, this particular issue is probably skippable if you're just looking to keep along with the general story, and it's certainly lends credence to waiting for the trade. Read Full Review
