Then, in an essay largely critical of the mysogyny in American Comics, Guardian blogger Ned Beauman singles out Bendis for some special praise:
But perhaps the greatest female superhero of recent years is Brian Michael Bendis's Jessica Jones. . . . Bendis took us inside her head, creating one of the bravest, wittiest and most sensitive portraits of a female character that superhero comics have ever seen.
The rest of the essay is mostly a summary of the responces to Marvel's Mary Jane statue, the controversial cover of Heroes for Hire, and Power Girl's bust size on a recent cover of Justice League America.
