Well I was both excited and nervous for a new writer on Jessica Jones. When Kelly Thompson was announced as writer my exciting part took over. I really wanted to see what she had for our P.I. and she delivered!

So what's Jessica up to lately? Taking care of her kid and loving Luke Cage. It's not a bad life. Then, of course someone is killing d rated superheroes. Then Jessica gets shot in the head. But wait, she is NOT dead. What is happening!?!?!

Good: art is solid throughout. I love the last iss

Six years ago, Jessica tried to help a girl named Dia with an abusive boyfriend. She failed. She nearly forgot about the case until, one day, she walked into her office to find the girl's dead body on her floor.

So begins Kelly Thompson's graphic novel "Jessica Jones: Blind Spot", which was the first JJ series not written by Brian Michael Bendis. No worries, though, because Thompson offers a fresh and exciting new perspective in JJ's world. (This book immediately follows Bendis's "Return of Purp

Jessica Jones: Blind Spot is a Marvel digital exclusive that contains three double length issues.

Blind Spot was basically a test for writer Kelly Thompson. Up until this run nobody but Jessica Jones creator Brian Michael Bendis had written Jessica Jones. Thompson was entrusted with this incredible tasks and she nails it.

I'll admit it, I'm biased. I really love Thompson and everything I've read of hers

Blind Spot gets off to a strong start with an intriguing murder mystery and the detective work that follows. Factor in the great artwork by Mattea de Iluis (i'm a sucker for digital artwork, so that's an easy win for books like this) and Kelly Thompson's first Jessica Jones story was soaring. Unfortunately, the second half fell into a steep decline and couldn't stick the landing.

The whodunnit? reveal is predictable and the powers that made all the mysterious events possible are vague, comic book

I must admit that I was worried about the new Jessica Jones series, since she's really never been written by anyone but Bendis. Kelly Thompson (who did great work on Hawkeye) has taken my concerns away.

Oh, her Jessica Jones isn't quite the same as Bendis'. He focused more on noir, while I see more of a feminist twist from Thompson. But Thompson also carries over the core of Jessica's personality, does a great job writing her relationship with Luke, and also carries over the mystery well, even if

Another character who can sustain a TV show but not a regular comic, the page version of Jessica Jones has the additional hurdle of remaining strongly identified with one writer, her co-creator, who's now under exclusive contract to the competition. This is, I believe, her first post-Bendis miniseries, initially digital-only. Kelly Thompson writes, which makes sense; why wouldn't you give a female lead with an engaged crossover audience to a female writer, and one with form writing a sort-of-sup ...more

I love the idea of doing longer form standalone stories like this in comics, meant to go directly to the shelves as trade paperbacks. Marvel should lean into this kind of thing. The biggest criticism I have with Blindspot is that it still kind of sticks to the traditional issue format, even switching artists at one point, perhaps because it was originally greenlit as an ongoing series or something. But otherwise it feels like Kelly Thompson is telling one story from beginning to end and I really ...more

I liked this a lot. The artwork was great, although it aped the style of Bendis/Maleev's take on this character far too closely--you need to do something different, something to set your story apart. Also, the solution to the main mystery was really simplistic and rather downright silly when it came down to it. Still, there's a lot to like here, particularly the relationship between Jessica and Luke Cage and daughter Dani. And the final issue, about a birthday party gone wrong, was a nice palate ...more

Jessica finds a corpse in her office and is immediately busted by overly suspicious cops. It's a setup! Then she gets shot in the head. Time to go to work!

Despite unwelcome cameos by Dr Strange, Spiderman, Thor et al, Blind Spot felt more like a strong Stumptown volume than a Marvel foray through most of the story. Jones is tough, smart, snarky, and relentless, and the central mystery is captivating. Thompson takes a hard feminist run at misogyny here, writing some exasperating male characters o

This was a fun story! Kelly Thompson continues to show that she knows how to write the sarcastic, witty female detective type well. She puts her trademark wit to good use writing Jessica Jones as we follow a case that is leaving people with powers dead, including for a short while, Jessica herself. The plot isn't the greatest but there are several delightful laugh-out-loud character moments and lines, and that is what I came for and this book delivered!

The last part of the volume is a side story

Kudos to Thompson and De Iulis for achieving the impossible - a smooth transition away from Bendis and Gaydos! A wonderful true detective story that starts with Jessica finding a corpse in her office... going to seeing a serial killer going after lesser know powered females! Thompson also introduces some great new touches, that you'll have to read to appreciate - still loving this series :) ...more

The newest Jessica Jones series, headed up by Thompson and de Iulis, started out as a digital three part story arc on Comixology, along with a bunch of other exclusively digital titles including Iron Fist, Captain Marvel and Luke Cage (the three “parts” were double sized issues). I’m curious how the sales piece is working out for Marvel (releasing issues digitally and trades in print seems like a bit of a risk), but I’m glad they’re at least willing to try with popular characters and especially ...more

This was my first Jessica Jones comic, and I loved it! Kelly Thompson is fantastic, so I was excited to see her rendition of Jessie; it didn’t disappoint! The mystery was intriguing, the dialogue was fun, and the art was some of the best I’ve seen lately. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in Jessica’s character, some previous knowledge of the character needed though. I’ve only watched the Netflix show, but I feel like that’s good enough; although one day I do plan on binge reading Ben ...more

I was wary of any series with Jessica Jones not written by Brian M Bendis, but as it turns out, this is terrific work. Different, but in a good, distinctive way. Intriguing story, excellent characterization. Well done.

It was ok. The art was cool, kind of a 90s feel. I enjoyed that. The story itself, was a bit meh honestly. Don’t get me wrong, the writing itself was great. But the story I thought was boring. I didn’t care at all about finding out what happened halfway into it. Once I did, I thought it was a bit dumb.

Hot on the heels of her last battle with the Purple Man, Jessica Jones has a new case - an old client, dead in her office. Accused of murder and wrapped up in a case too crazy to believe, only Jess can get to the bottom of it and save both her client, and herself.

Kelly Thompson really gets characters. Everything she's written really cuts to the core of a character, deconstructing and examining them in such detail that it's as if she's been writing them forever. Jessica Jones is a perfect example

This was phenomenal! It was amazing to read Jessica Jones from a woman's point of view. While I did enjoy Bendis' Jones, this was better. It was less noir, less ongoing self-loathing without context, and definitely more feminist. Gone are the needless cells of Jessica taking it from behind while looking like she already regrets it.

The storyline was great and chilling and elevated from where it had been. Jessica tries to help the client that she was unable to help before; an unknown assailant is

“Maybe if you pretend to care less, the world won’t notice that it gave you something to love. Maybe then it won’t try to take it from you.”

A quintessential sentiment from Jessica Jones, who has lost more people in her life than a person ever should. And what I love about the comics is that they let her keep her family in her husband Luke Cage and daughter Danielle unlike the television show, which takes and takes from her until all she is left with her is strength. Symbolic? Metaphorical? Sure

In Blind Spot, the new Jessica Jones series starts off hot, but cools down by the end. Kelly Thompson takes over writing duties from Brian Michael Bendis and does an admirable job of replicating his dialogue-heavy style. The words don't always flow as smoothly as before, but Jessica's world-weary voice is still there. The art by de Iulis is suitably noir, though sometimes oddly shiny, like a scene wrapped in plastic. Blind Spot as a package is a solid continuation of Jessica Jones' world.

Jessica Jones: Blind Spot is the first Jessica Jones solo series not written by Brian Michael Bendis or drawn by Michael Gaydos, to moderate succes.

The case she's working on isn't really that engaging. It's good, but nothing special. It reminds me heavily of another Marvel hero in all honesty. Thompson makes some decisions that are initially quite confusing, but by issue 4/5 it all makes sense... Sorta.

There are some fun cameos from other characters, which lead to some great banter and keep

Here's the thing. I really wanted to like this because of the little bit I've watched of Krysten Ritter's portrayal of the character in Netflix's Defenders and Jessica Jones. The problem here is that Thompson doesn't quite get across Jones as an individual reclaiming herself from damage (both inflicted on her and self-inflected) and portraying a healthy relationship between Jones and Cage.

Nope instead the reader gets a pretty standard superhero story (yawn), and almost no Luke, Dani or relation

I read and enjoyed the new Jessica Jones trade collection titled "Blind Spot" from Marvel. The creative team of Kelly Thompson and Mattia De Iulis gave us a good Jessica Jones story, an intriguing mystery, and some surprises along the way. Most importantly, they did their own thing and did not try to copy the Bendis/Gaydos team who had spearheaded the series since its inception. I give this one 4 Stars.

My one complaint is that the trade ends with "to be continued..." My fear is for those who pic

In reading this book, I discovered that I like the Jessica Jones storylines because of the mysteries she solves and her hardcore character. I don't like it whenever a superhero shows up. To me, that's cheesy. Blind Spot was good on its own, but not nearly as awesome as Alias. In spite of all of the superhero-y stuff in this book, I enjoyed the mystery and how it turned out. I personally didn't see the end coming, but maybe that's because I am not a superhero person. Finally, I enjoyed the art in ...more

Kelly Thompson is the right person to write the return of Jessica Jones. Following up the run of the character's creator is no easy task, but Kelly does it excellently. She understands Jessica's character and writes in her voice with ease. This story arc however, wasn't my favorite with some parts being a bit confusing and slow. It's also frustrating to see a plot being setup over several issues, just to see it resolved in only a few panels. There was space for some great character growth, but t ...more

While I get that Brian Michael Bendis created Jessica Jones and has been the only writer to really write the character AND that he is one of the better male comics writers at writing female characters as soon as I heard that Kelly Thompson was taking over the series I knew I was in good hands. She tells a good story and has a great handle on Jessica's relationship with Luke Cage and even adds a lightness to their interactions and banter that was rarely there under Bendis and was a real treat.

The character Jessica Jones is noted as Bendis' favorite project, has long been a great read. I started this arc by reading writer's Kelly Thompson's letter to fans in the back of the first issue. I think it set the tone so well. She talked about
