    Even though there were moments I was questioning this series and Bendis, but by the end it managed to grab me again and get me excited for the next issue. I'm a huge fan of Jessica Jones and can't recommend this book enough. It's a nice dark and gritty book that is very different form everything else out on the market. If you enjoyed the Netflix show, then you will enjoy this series. Read Full Review

    While we wait to see the outcome, there's a cracking good story unfolding - we just hope it doesn't end by breaking our hearts. Read Full Review

    This issue improves upon last month's debut, with Jessica and Luke Cage's cheerful and heartwarming (no wait, what's the literal exact opposite of that?) reunion setting the stage for a series that seems to pick up right where we left off 12 years ago. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Adam Fitch Nov 16, 2016

    The artwork is non-descript at times but not in a way that suggests the art isn't very good. It's hard to explain, but the style is so different and unique that it feels perfectly at home with these set of characters. We can't get enough of Jessica, no matter how pessimistic she is, and we're just chuffed she's got her own solo series again. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Jordan Calhoun Nov 22, 2016

    Overall, while the plot forms and we figure out what this arc is going to be about, Jessica Jones is worth reading as one of the most relatable characters out there to anyone who's ever tried to find normalcy in their life when life had other plans. I sincerely don't care where Bendis takes this series" so long as Jessica Jones stays true to its character and continues to slowly overcome one challenge after another, growing, putting herself together piece by piece.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Nov 19, 2016

    For now, I'm willing to stick around because of the character and the creative team. They can definitely make a great comic.But the second issue of Jessica Jones still feels like it's keeping any meaningful development at arm's reach. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Nov 17, 2016

    Jessica Jones #2 is evidence of Michael Gaydos ability to draw out genuine emotions through poses and page layouts, but the plot is a bit of a police procedural snooze and Bendis falls back on old patterns when it comes to Jessica Jones characterization while being downright regressive with Luke Cage.

    Following up on an astounding first issue, Jessica Jones digs into the past like a private eye should and it pays off in some ways, while causing the issue to stumble in others. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Nov 22, 2016

    There are certainly a lot of unanswered questions here: What, exactly, is Jessica protecting her daughter from? Who killed her client, and why? What does the Spot want with Jessica? And how far is Luke Cage willing to go to get his daughter back? Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Nov 21, 2016

    Jessica Jones gives us one small answer to one of the dozensof questions that we had after the first issue and introduces a brand new batchof questions going forward. Gaydos' art is really hit or miss for me and thisissue felt like a big miss and the dialogue is done so carefully so as not tospoil any of the questions that we have already. I understand wanting to leavethe reader in suspense, however the book is suffering from it heavily at thispoint. Read Full Review
