Jessica Jones #15

Jessica Jones has issues. I'm just saying. Jessica Jones #15 brings the super-hero detective face-to-face with the Purple Man for a mostly-civil discussion about how Kilgrave has missed her company and needs something from her. Mostly civil, that is to say, until Jessica's pals (with the help of Kraven the Hunter) spring their trap and assassinate the mind-controlling super-villain in mid-sentence. And then things get interesting.

By interesting, I'm not so much referring to Jessica beating up the dead man's corpse (which see does with ferocity). No, I'm referring to the fact that death doesn't seem to agree with the Purple Man who rises to his feet in a far less agreeable mood than when his conversation with Jessica began.

Aside from the bizarre sudden immortality of the character (an all-too-convenient plot-point to possibly to allow David Tennant to reprise him on Netflix?), the comic is creepily entertaining while featuring some amusing dark comedy. Worth a look.
