    Unsurprisingly, The Variants continues to be as stellar and surprising as its initial first issue. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jul 28, 2022

    Three more issues left in the series. Its still pretty confusing as to precisely what is going on. Simone is gazing deeply into the psyche of Jess while Noto is bringing that psyche to the page with a striking clarity of vision. Theres an impressive complexity about it all that also embraces the whole of the Marvel Universe with a tender intimacy. Simone has a deep understanding of what works for Jessica Jones, and shes bringing that understanding to the page.  Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Ross Hutchinson Jul 27, 2022

    Like a clever origami puzzle, issue #2 continues to slowly unfold what is happening to Jessica Jones and the mystery of these variants . Simone shows off her incredible ability for character voice and digging into the emotional core of characters she writes. This is brought to life through glorious art loaded with emotional nuance from Noto to match the excellent script. It's a slower paced but emotionally taut affair that deepens the mystery while digging deep into its main characters core. This is Jessica Jones storytelling at it's finest. Read Full Review

    This series is everything great about modern superhero comics. Strong writing and art craft a compelling story about real people as superheroes, and I can only hope there are more such Jessica Jones Mysteries in the future. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Aug 1, 2022

    This issue still doesn't explain the whole of what's going on but that's okay, because the plot, characters and art are all strong enough that I want this mystery to last. Read Full Review
