    Black Nerd Problems - Jordan Calhoun Feb 1, 2018

    Artistically, continual close-ups capture the emotion of conversations for most of the issue. This isn't an action-packed one, there isn't a physical showdown where Jessica fights with the animated shell of Carol Danvers, but Jessica facing Killgrave and her own mortality is more than enough. Overall, you want to read this. Period. Read Full Review

    There's not much going on in JESSICA JONES #16 other than a simple conversation. But what a conversation it is! It ends in one of the most interesting and surprising twists in recent memory. It's loaded, it's riveting, and it's thought-provoking. Read Full Review

    Digging deep, we are treated to a look inside Jessicas head. Always one to blame herself, she is put in circumstances beyond her control, and she resents it. Conversely, The Purple Mans ego is put on display. A character developing issue, its the strongest in the arc so far. Read Full Review

    The conclusion of the comic picks up a thread from Netflix's television show that was toyed with momentarily but quickly thrown away in favor of pitting the pair against each other. Could the Purple Man, under Jessica's influence, be a force for good in the world? I guess we're about to see. As for me? Let's just say I wouldn't bet against this becoming another Jessica Jones-sized shitstorm before all is said and done. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    I'll be sad to see Bendis go, but he's certainly going out with literal and metaphorical guns a' blazin,. Read Full Review

    Jessica Jones #16 doesn't have perfect pacing, but the emotions needed for a final arc are presented well. Read Full Review
