    Comic Crusaders - Tracy Sayers Feb 14, 2017

    This is a fantastic series. Working with emotional and physical troubles. Mental health is a big thing with the Jessica Jones franchise and they do it with grace, compassion, and information. Rate 5/5 Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - SHAY REVOLVER Feb 11, 2017

    Overall this issue was pure fire. It evoked actual emotion and managed to create tension, dread, and mystery. It was a full color, well drawn, well written, film noir mystery in comic book form and I was here for it. As a whole, I was still on edge when I finished reading and it took a moment for me to calm down enough to write my review. The issue felt real and there's something marvelous about picking up an issue of a comic book and having fit take hold of you by pulling you into the story. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Feb 14, 2017

    Somehow aware of the events of Secret Wars and the fallout of the Avengers choosing to destroy multiple universes and kill billions, Mr. Brownlee explains his rather awful murder of his wife and why none of it matters at all. In his view, the Avengers broke his world, overwrote it with a flimsy copy, and nothing in this reality matters in the least. The trouble for Jessica is, despite he man's particular brand of crazy, the more he speaks the more she realizes that he's probably right, which may be an issue sending her in with that mindset going undercover with a group hellbent on exposing super-heroes and their secrets. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Feb 11, 2017

    This series continues to be powerful and sharply written and drawn - but it's not for everyone and it's certainly not for young readers. Mature readers who can handle the bleakness, however, will love it. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Feb 13, 2017

    This issue of Jessica Jones continues to give us incrediblestorytelling and is surprisingly dealing with the aftermath of the universechanging event that was Secret Wars. The dialogue is amazing and the issue isengaging. While I may have one issue with one aspect of this story so far, itdoes not ruin the book at all for me and I can't wait for what happens next.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Feb 9, 2017

    The series is still progressing too slowly overall, but this issue suggests that it's finding a better balance between gritty detective story and a book that dives into the rich tapestry of the Marvel U. Read Full Review

    Fortress of Solitude - Rick Austin Feb 10, 2017

    The pacing on this series, and indeed this series itself, may not be to everyone's tastes. But once again Jessica Jones is proving that this series marches to the beat of its own drummer, and doesn't need to apologise for that. Jessica Jones #5 is dark, intriguing and intense, and well worth picking up. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Feb 11, 2017

    Points to Bendis for coming up with a really crazy spin-off from Secret Wars. Bendis' character proposes a pretty interesting phenomenon here, and I like what he's getting at. All these big, insane crossover moments and Marvel usually just moves right on. A comic like Jessica Jones is the perfect place to pick up the slack. I like the idea of the scrappy, independent investigator somehow digging into the insanity of Secret Wars (and I always enjoy the Spot cameos). So I like where the story is going, but this is just an issue of the guy laying it all out for Jessica. This has been a very low key, low energy comic. That doesn't make it bad, but it does dull the excitement a little. Read Full Review
