Jessica Jones #6

   And just like that, the first story arc of the new Jessica Jones series is wrapped up.

   As you'd expect, it's not quite a happy ending, as Jessica is caught in the middle of a plot to bring down members of the super-community - especially Captain Marvel.

   The art by Michael Gaydos is tremendous - earthy and powerful - and Brian Michael Bendis' scripts are as sharp and biting as ever.

    Reading this series is always an interesting experience. It's apparently "in continuity" - there are plenty of references to past and ongoing events in the Marvel universe - but the language are attitudes are not for young readers.

   Still, for those readers mature enough to tolerate the vulgarity, it's a powerful series and one that's loaded with unexpected twists.

   Highly recommended!

Grade: A-

Really enjoyed it, especially the "secret" tie-in....
