    The plot for this arc still hasn't convinced me that I should invest much interest in it, and once again Brian Michael Bendis offers up one of those irksome moments where Jessica's investigation takes a huge leap forward thanks to a character who arrives in the story with the exact information she needed, but made next to no effort to discover herself. Now the book continues to offer up some very enjoyable dialogue exchanges, but it's coming to the point where I'm starting to wonder why Brian Michael Bendis is offering up such conventional plots on this title, as he's proven on his other titles that he can deliver his engaging dialogue alongside equally engaging plots. Now the mystery regarding the tragedy in Jessica's past looks promising, and I'll admit I'm mildly curious what Jessica's next move is going to be in this story, but I can't shake the feeling that this book could be so much more than it is.
