This is not Bendis' best work (that would be his work on "Daredevil"), but it is an interesting crime tale that has an ending as abrupt and as unlikely as they come. Read morePublished on April 8, 2007 by Doug Brunell
There is a scene in JINX (and this gives nothing away) in which writer/artist Brian Michael Bendis deviates from the plot to show us people in an arcade talking. Read morePublished on February 5, 2007 by Tony C
If you enjoy Brian Michael Bendis's prose then you will like this work. In tone, it is much more similar to Powers and Alias than his more recent Marvel work. Read morePublished on November 2, 2006 by R. A. Patton
