TITLE: The Variants #2 (of 5)
AUTHOR: Gail Simone
ARTISTS: Phil Noto, Cory Petit (Letterer)
RELEASED: July 27, 2022
By Rob Siebert
Gail Simone’s wit really shines through in this book, thus far. It’s a good fit for Jessica Jones and the Hell’s Kitchen setting.
I can already tell I’m going to miss this Simone/Noto team when they’re done.
Considering this story has multiple multiversal Jessica Jones doubles, thus far it’s surprisingly grounded. By Marvel standards, anyway. Case in point, we open with a simple diner conversation between Jessica and Tigra. It feels very personal, and doesn’t get lost in what I’ll call “cosmic fluff” of it all.
