    All-Comic - Jessica Petrecz Jan 15, 2017

    This series is just continuing to get better and better with each issue. We finally get some answers to some questions from issue #1, but there is a long way to go. We are still wondering about the murdered woman who hired Jessica, and why Jessica was in jail. Her unique take on events and unique voice are welcomed amongst the family friendly titles that are turned out every week. As we wait for more answers, it is a delight to watch Jessica traverse the Marvel world once again with Bendis and team. Read Full Review

    This issue of Jessica Jones isn't just good, it's so goodthat it makes all the issue that came before it even better. This issue issatisfying and so real I cannot praise it enough. When it comes to stories likethis, I tend to know what I like and I wasn't getting that in the first coupleof issues but now I'm going to have to rethink everything I thought beforebecause this issue was such an enormous pay off.

    It's a strong return for the series and it fits well with the TV version, too. It's for adult readers - and highly recommended! Read Full Review

    Finally, four issues in, Bendis starts letting us in on his secrets and finally delivers a worthwhile issue of Jessica Jones. I'm definitely sticking around now. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Jan 11, 2017

    This is still an incredible series even with some of the problems I had with this issue. If you haven't been following it I highly suggest you go pick up the first three issues and this one and get caught up. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Jan 18, 2017

    Carol's plan bears fruit as a member of the group does reach out to Jessica. Of course it's also caused unnecessary drama in the young woman's life where Luke Cage (and his apparent harem of female friends) is concerned. While far from shocking, the reveal undercuts the new series defining message about the character: she's a fuck-up trying to make good. In fact she's not. She's a hero who is making an extreme personal sacrifice to keep her friends and family safe. The only problem? Once revealed I'm not sure that it will earn her any sympathy. For fans.

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Jan 11, 2017

    When Brian MichaelBendis and Michael Gaydos aren'tteasing and prodding readers for a fourth straight issue,Jessica Jones#4 is a celebration of its lead character's heroism in the face of adversity and with a healthy dose of snark. And, on a more negative note, the portrayal of Misty Knight as jealous and cantankerous continues to confirm my theory that Bendis bases his characterization of classic Marvel heroes on what his plot demands. This is why most of his best work either is rooted in other creators' work (Frank Miller for Daredevil, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko for Ultimate Spider-Man) or involves his own creations like Jessica Jones, Echo, or Miles Morales.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jan 12, 2017

    This series enjoyed a strong debut, but now that the novelty of having a mature readers-oriented Jessica Jones comic has worn off a bit, the holes are starting to show through. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Jordan Calhoun Jan 16, 2017

    Overall, this issues worst crime is being boring. That, coupled with punishing readers for caring more about Jessica's struggles as a person than how she relates to superhero-ing, pivots this book in an unfortunate direction. It's definitely not all doom ahead " there's a dozen directions this comic can go from here " but issue #4 isn't the best reflection of why this series is worth reading. Hopefully the next one reminds us. Read Full Review
