Did I miss something?
Jessica Jones (2016-) #1 - Michael Gaydos,David Mack,Brian Michael Bendis

Jessica Jones, ex-superhero and current private investigator, is separated from her husband, or ex-husband, Luke Cage.   She's hiding their baby and this is a huge thing: Cage sends all his hero friends to ask about Danielle, and Jessica Jones tells them it'll be a Big Thing if they keep harassing her. 

 

Meanwhile she picks up a case: a husband wakes up, says he's not married to his wife, and is in fact married to another woman.   He has a child with this woman.   Meanwhile, the lady who hired Jones can't have kids, so this may be something personal, something the husband is doing to hurt her. 

 

Or maybe, she says, it's an alternate dimension or a super villain thing.  That happens in their world.   Maybe he's crazy.   But she wants Jessica to figure it out and tell her. 

 

The problem is that without knowing why Jones was in jail or how she hid the baby during that time, without knowing what happened between her and Luke, I'm too confused to be anything but frustrated.  You don't show confusion by making the reader confused. 

 

I didn't get enough answers for me to continue, although I might later on.  For now, I got this free as a Marvel Insider - I used my points to get some free comics - so I enjoyed getting to read this.  Think I'll wait for a sale to continue, though.

Gross
Doctor Strange (2015-) #23 - Dennis Hopeless,Niko Henrichon

More Secret Empire.   So gross.   Especially the whole Wilson Fisk thing.  I'm over this all right now.   

 

I wish I could give this whole event and all the tie-ins negative stars.

Liking this more right now
Gwenpool, The Unbelievable (2016-) #18 - Christopher Hastings,Gurihiru

The meta issue is back in the forefront and it looks like it might be taken to another level.   I'm hoping it is.  

 

It's a bunch of fun, especially with Gwen's brother and family involved now, and this was a lot of fun with a lot of guest appearances and references.   Let's see where this goes now...

Lovely extended AU
Spider-Gwen (2015-) #22 - Jason Latour,Robbi Rodriguez

Nice takes on Wolverine and Shadowcat and their history together, and how that influences what everyone does here. 

 

Also, love seeing The Lizard, how he's connected to Spider-Gwen and the decision that's made with Venom here - and I can't wait to see how that evolves. 

 

Especially since there's another tragedy with Captain Stacey about to unfold, although hopefully not a fatal tragedy.

Yay!
Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur (2015-) #21 - Brandon Montclare,Natacha Bustos

If Moon Girl were alone, if she were slightly naughty - but believed herself to be evil - she'd be Devil Girl with her monstrous Moon Dinosaur.   And seeing Moon Girl and Devil Girl smack talk each other?   Hilarious. 

 

I love some of the messages here - about community, about being true to yourself - although they aren't at all heavy handed so you can just sit back and enjoy the story.   Warm, funny, this continues the Moon Girl series as a kid-friendly series that adults can enjoy, too.   

 

Sorry it's not a longer review.  I'm burnt out from writing so many lately.
