The conclusion to Jessica's strangest case yet!

    Another solid issue if all you're looking for Brian Michael Bendis' trademark dialogue, but if you're entering this book hoping for engaging mysteries, or clever plots then you're likely to be a bit disappointed, as Jessica's cases are pretty run-of-the-mill once you're done being led astray by the wealth of red herrings & false leads that Brian Michael Bendis' litters the path with. I mean we've had a political scandal that attempted to tar Captain America as a killer, a Rick Jones wanna be who went missing, and now a teenager who decided to runaway from home. I'm starting to rather dislike the current trend that has writers tailoring their stories so they can be readily collected in trade paperback form, but Brian Michael Bendis is the worst offender, as his stories simply don't pack enough punch plot-wise to justify their expanded lengths. Still, the splendid dialogue does do a great deal to make up for the simple plots. Read Full Review

    This arc has been very interesting to this point and this may be the best issue of the whole story. It is very dramatic and cinematic. There is a very long monologue from a new character that provides about 4 or 5 issues worth of depth in one 22 page issue. There is a pretty dramatic turn at the end as well.

    Rebecca Cross delivers a message to Jessica, but that message was in fact meant for the real weird. Rebecca is a Mutant and she lives in a racist and stubborn town. She runs away and Jessica is hired to find her and bring her home. Jessica forcibly takes Rebecca back home and Rebecca complains why she runs away. She says life’s too short to live in a town like her home town and she find who she really was when she ran away. It was a really powerful part of the issue and one of the most powerful moments of the series.
