Welcome back, sorry that I have missed a few, but we are back to reviewing comics every day! Today, Seppin is going to be reviewing Jessica Jones Chapters 3 & 4 written by Kelly Thompson and art by Mattia de Iulis.
So, I thought that I had already reviewed the first two chapters, but it turns out that was before I started reviewing comics. In that case, I am going to just catch you all up on what is going on in the messed up world of Jessica Jones. She is on a case about an abusive boyfriend who has superpowers. We think that he is killing important women in the Marvel universe too because he shot Jessica in the head and looks to be going after others too.
That is the main points of it, so let’s start the review. The first chapter has an incredible team-up with Jessica and Elsa Bloodstone. This book is pretty funny because they are both constantly swearing like sailors and fighting monsters while Jessica is investigating her. I love it because it is so out of Jessica’s comfort zone, yet it fits so well because the characters are similarly strong women. Then we get a death, without spoiling it, I will tell you that it is pretty surprising, but what is more surprising is that the suspected abusive boyfriend has split into two people. One is a healer and the other is killing women. This is a neat way to explain how Jexxica and Elsa survived their attacks.
I really enjoy Kelly Thompson’s work on Jessica Jones. It naturally transitions from Brian Michael Bendis’ work on the book and the character is perfect. I am super excited to see what she does next in this online original series. They have already said that trade paperbacks are coming, so I know that I will be picking it up as soon as it comes out because I love this story.
Overall, the story is entertaining and suits Jessica perfectly.
(How good is the story? Does it stand up to others?)
(Does it tell the story? Does it work well with the character?)
(Does this story need to be told? Is it helping the Character?)
(Is the character represented well? Does the writer understand the character?)
