Jessica Jones #10

The life of Jessica Jones isn't getting any less complicated. After being released from prison, finally putting her family back together, run-ins with S.H.I.E.L.D., Hydra, or whoever is actually calling the shots now, and cases which have ended badly for everyone, Jessica sits in her office and stews waiting for her client to show up. She doesn't have to wait long, although the arrival of Maria Hill doesn't help the super-powered private eye make sense of the shit-show she's somehow landed herself in.

Convinced that Hill is lying at the start of the issue and convinced only that she doesn't know what the hell is going on (not unlike Marvel's current event), Jessica also has to deal with answering questions from S.H.I.E.L.D. and an unexpected bombing by the Hobgoblin. Yeah, she can't even have her life threatened by the good Goblin.

There's fun to be had here and the tone you'd expect from the series, although the events don't do much to push Jessica in one direction or another. By the end of the issue all Jessica knows is that she doesn't know much (not unlike Marvel's... oh, you know). Worth a look.
