Jessica Jones #3

Life gets no less complicated for Jessica Jones. After being abducted by the Spot, Jessica awakes in a dingy basement, shackled to a chair. Following a little verbal sparring with the super-villain, Jessica is allowed to meet the woman in charge who doesn't threaten her. Instead, "Alison" admits to working behind the scenes to procure her release from prison and then offers Jessica a job. For a mysterious figure working for questionable sources, she does make a fairly good argument.

With both Detective Costello and Luke Cage looking for her, Jessica's sudden disappearance doesn't go unnoticed. However, the pair are really in the issue only as window dressing. The real focus of the issue is Jessica's new job over. Would she honestly accept a job putting her knowledge of the super-hero community to use for a shadowy organization which won't identify itself? It sounds implausible, but let's face it, Jessica Jones hasn't always made the brightest decisions. And with Luke and his friends still hounding her, how far will she go to earn a little peace? Worth a look.
