Jessica Jones #13

Jessica Jones #13 is all prologue for one hell of a creepy-ass final panel. Don't get me wrong, it's damn good prologue. Brian Michael Bendis' Alias run introduced the connection between Jessica Jones and the Purple Man. The run made such a lasting impression its run became the source of Netflix's Jessica Jones television series. The only surprise is it took the new comic series this long to bring him back.

Learning at the end of the last issue that Kilgrave had escaped S.H.I.E.L.D. custody, the latest issue of Jessica Jones features our heroine processing that information and taking the steps necessary to protect her child. The comic has no real action and little drama other than the growing anticipation (and Jessica's dread) of what's to come. However, this does offer us a humorous interaction with Carol Danvers who earns a new moniker I'm not going to let her live down any time soon.

Given the character's success on Netflix, I am curious to see how Bendis presents Kilgrave this time around, and what exactly he has planned for Jessica. Worth a look.
