Jessica Jones's investigations into a small town show that a missing young girl is not what she seemed. And, once again: no appearances by Luke Cage!

    A book that contains the worst excesses of Brian Michael Bendis' writing style, while it also sports very little of his work's saving graces. Now up until the book hits the David Mack sequence the material is very readable, with the conversations with the young girl, the jock & the reporter all being quite engaging, not to mention fairly amusing. The final couple pages of this issue also grabbed my interest, as they set up what looks to be a rather disturbing answer to what might've happened to this young girl. Everything in-between these two points however is pretty forgettable stuff, as the collage book is David Mack at his indecipherable best, while the follow-up material is basically Brain Michael Bendis killing time by exploring a relationship that doesn't really go anywhere. I get that Jessica is a flawed character, but is it too much to ask that her flaws be a sight more interesting than the idea that she has the ability to get drunk. Read Full Review
