SPOILER-FREE ZONE

Jessica Jones: Blind Spot #1 was a breath of fresh air after reading the 1st issue of Miles Morales: The End. This one doesn’t insult your intelligence at all. The art is spot-on, and conveys emotions brilliantly. I got really invested in the story line. I’d recommend picking this comic book up any way you can!

END OF SPOILER-FREE ZONE

You are now exiting the spoiler-free zone. Do yourself a favor and stop reading if you don’t want any spoilers.

After a flash-forward, which I will not spoil for you here, the book cuts to Jessica Jones with her family. The way she interacts with Luke Cage mirrors a real-life relationship. It’s great how they illustrate the shared responsibilities of being parents. Jessica leaves to go to her office, only to find a dead body planted inside. Before she could identify the body, she is swarmed by police, who take her in.

It turns out the body is of a former client of hers. It hits her hard. Not only has she been framed for this person’s murder, but she remembers not being able to help the client when she was alive. It’s a cold case that has come back to bite her in the rear. It’s interesting how they convey Jessica’s ability to keep up with details, even when under immense stress.

Our favorite lawyer arrives to save the day (if you’re not sure who that is, read the book!). Seeing as they weren’t ready to press any charges, Jessica Jones is promptly released. She chooses to return to her office to locate the file she has on her now-deceased ex-client. Jessica decides to make it her mission to bring her ex-client some justice. In all of her hard work, she falls asleep in her office. When she awakens she is surprised by… well I’m not going to spoil the ending for you now am I? Get this comic book right now! You won’t regret it!
