Jessica Jones #8

   Despite being set firmly in the Marvel universe, Jessica Jones manages to find the seamy underbelly that most series ignore.

   The latest mystery arrives at Jessica's office in the form of Maria Hill, the former head of SHIELD - and someone who's loaded with top-quality, grade "A" secrets and conspiracy theories.

   Someone wants Hill dead - and has nearly succeeded, as Hill tries to bind up her most recent wound in Jessica's office.

   But finding the answer to the mystery will put Jessica in the crosshairs as well - and can a "normal" detective deal with a national conspiracy against a woman who knows where all the bodies are buried?

   As always, the script by Brian Michael Bendis is tremendous, especially when two intelligent powerhouses like Jessica and Maria square off.

   Add in the tremendous art by Michael Gaydos and you have a powerful series for older readers (yep, this series is for adults only,  because of language and adult themes).

   Highly recommended!

Grade: A-
