Is this issue a game changer or more of the same? Read on to find out.
The official description from Dynamite:
Jen Fellows will do anything she has to for her family. Jennifer Blood will justify anything she has to for revenge. Eventually, something had to give. This issue: everything changes.
The saga of Jennifer Blood continues, as our ruthless heroine wrecks some dynamic havoc while still dealing with her suburban lifestyle. This latest issue, has our protagonist take aim at the couple that tried to convince her husband to have an extramarital affair in last month’s little romp. She confronted them in the first few pages and what spilled out of a moment of revenge yielded some very interesting plot lines.
It’s by no means a perfect effort, but this is easily one of the best stories that series writer Al Ewing has offered up. The script in this issue is a very strong read that successfully delivers both good character development and an exceptionally solid narrative that shows how brutally good this comic can be. With that said, there are moments where the pace of this little jaunt is bogged down by some rather pointless and wholly unnecessary dialogue, but thankfully those brief mishaps are few and far between.
The thick lines and solidly detailed characters by Kewber Baal, continue to fit the narrative in a way that honestly suits the story quite well. From the raunchy torture to the shocking reveal, this world flows with a life and character all its own. However, there are some minor moments that suffer from an absence of detail, resulting in some truly underwhelming panels.
Without spoiling what the big shake-up is, let me just say kudos to the creative team for doing something this bold and fairly early in this already hard-hitting series. Simply put, Jennifer Blood #15 is a really good read that deserves a look by any willing comic fan. Recommended.
