*No Major Spoilers*

This segment in the Jessica Jones saga follows Jessica as she’s getting released from prison. Soon after, fellow heroes start following her and asking about where her child is. However, she can not say and has to fight them off or run away.

After hearing about Jessica’s release Luke Cage starts tracking her down and asking where their child is. Jessica, being unable to answer him, Luke throws a tantrum and receives some bad press.

When a woman hires Jessica to follow her husband, things go haywire as the wife turns up dead. Not only that, but a mysterious woman kidnaps Jessica and tries to get her to do her bidding.

When the case is seemingly wrapped up, Jessica goes to her mother’s house to bring their daughter home, however, Luke Cage has beaten her there. How will this affect the relationship between Jessica and Luke moving forward?

I enjoyed this graphic novel. I am a fan of Jessica Jones and Luke Cage, they make an odd pairing, but not every couple is “perfect” by society’s standards.

I thought this was a really bittersweet story about how difficult it is to be a parent in a world where the good guys are getting hunted. Jessica had to do what was safe for her daughter at all costs.

I would recommend this book who are looking to get their Jessica Jones fix before season 2 hits! Or even after you binge-watch seasons 1 & 2! It’s not a part of the Netflix series timeline (as far as we know), but it’s still a great read.
