Jessica Jones: Come Home (Marvel Comics, 2001; #11-15)

  • After a problematic arc that didn’t age well, I’m happy to report that Jessica Jones is back on track.
  • In this volume, Jessica investigates the disappearance of a teenage girl who may have been a mutant from a racist garbage fire of a town.
  • Her rant against bigotry in the pulpit gives me joy.
  • After her case, she goes on a date with Scott Lang.
  • Bendis’s sense of voice makes Jessica Jones work as well as it does.
  • Gaydos and company’s art remains strong and pulpy, with stellar layouts.

I’m relieved that I enjoyed this arc of Jessica Jones as much as I did; I'm looking forward to the next again.
