Miles Morales is just your average teenager. Dinner every Sunday with his parents, chilling out playing old-school video games with his best friend, Ganke, crushing on brainy, beautiful poet Alicia. He's even got a scholarship spot at the prestigious Brooklyn Visions Academy. Oh yeah, and he's Spider Man.
But lately, Miles's spidey-sense has been on the fritz. When a misunderstanding leads to his suspension from school, Miles begins to question his abilities. After all, his dad and uncle were Brooklyn jack-boys with criminal records. Maybe kids like Miles aren't meant to be superheroes. Maybe Miles should take his dad's advice and focus on saving himself.
As Miles tries to get his school life back on track, he can't shake the vivid nightmares that continue to haunt him. Nor can he avoid the relentless buzz of his spidey-sense every day in history class, amidst his teacher's lectures on the historical "benefits" of slavery and the modern-day prison system. But after his scholarship is threatened, Miles uncovers a chilling plot, one that puts his friends, his neighborhood, and himself at risk.
It's time for Miles to suit up.
Jessica has just faced her greatest fears - her most dangerous enemy - and won! Surely everything is smooth sailing from here? Nope! Instead she finds a corpse in her office - the body of a woman who came to Jessica for help years ago with a case Jessica failed to solve. And now she's being framed for the woman's murder! As Jessica reopens her investigation in hopes of bringing Dia Sloane's killer to justice, she finds herself caught in the web of a serial killer intent on murdering women with powers. Can Jessica figure out how all the pieces connect before the killer claims their next victim? The Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange, is not being helpful - shocker. But how is monster hunter extraordinaire Elsa Bloodstone tied up in this whole mess?
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 the book, too. Honestly, if I don't enjoy the art, I give up within just a few pages. Art is essential to enjoying graphic novels and comics. Blind Spot didn't disappoint!
