*No Spoilers* **Besides obvious ones**

Jessica Jones, retired Avenger and now Private eye, takes a job at the Daily Bugle for a new column for the newspaper called The Pulse. Along with famed columnist Ben Urich, the duo is tasked with reporting on fellow superheroes and report on their activities and other interesting superhero news stories. All while Jessica is expecting a baby.

However, someone is after Jessica and Luke Cage. Will they come out alive? Will Jessica’s baby be healthy? How is S.H.I.E.L.D. involved? Everyone’s favorite superheroes make a cameo in this epic story of action, excitement, and family!

Ben Urich also has his own storyline in this graphic novel. He wants to tell the whole story, no matter the red tape or the lack of interest from his coworkers. His loyalty to Daredevil makes him a good member of the press to have at your side.

This story is awesome! I loved all of the cameos from the Marvel Universe superheroes and supervillains! Jessica Jones is a very relatable character in the fact that she is a new mother. The fact of having superhero parents can make being a parent of a possible baby with superhuman powers terrifying!

This is a big collection of graphic novels. So if you’re not up for a long graphic novel, maybe try one of her shorter graphic novels first. I would suggest the Alias series, or the beginning of the series I reviewed Monday.

REVIEW: Jessica Jones, Vol.1: Uncaged By Brian Michael Bendis

*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.

Welcome Back to Marvel Week!

Hello guys!

Hope you guys enjoyed DC Comic book week! Reading the Joker-themed graphic novels was amazing and left me stunned and wanting more.

I also hope you enjoyed my review of The Other Side of Midnight by Simone St. James! I wasn’t expecting much from this book, but this book blew me away!

Anyway, on with what the theme for this Marvel week going to be. I was actually panicking a bit because I wanted to do a theme with something that was coming out in March. Then the trailer for Netflix‘s Jessica Jones season 2 dropped. I was saved! It releases on Netflix on March 8th. So I timed it just right!

Anyway, hope you enjoy reading my reviews for Jessica Jones comics to get hyped for season 2! I hear it’s going to be great!
