Meet Jessica Jones, one-time costumed heroine turned private investigator. After realizing that her powers were unremarkable compared to those of the icons in the Marvel Universe, Jones gave up being a super hero and eventually opened up a detective agency. While her intent to help others is intact, her personal behavior is anything but valiant: She is bitter, resentful and self-destructive. In lieu of professional help, Jessica battles her inferiority complex and depression with a chain-smoking habit and alcoholic tendencies. In spite of her self-imposed exile from the spandex crowd, Jessica's cases continually lead her back to her old circle of acquaintances, which only fuels her angst even more. Jessica is imperfect and human, and her textured personality is eloquently rendered by Bendis and Gaydos.

With the TV series coming up soon, Marvel re-offered Alias, and I decided to give it a go. After all, I'd read Jessica Jones before, in the original Young Justice series, and I liked her there, so maybe I'd like this one too? Yup! Jessica Jones is a former superhero who decided to move into a se...

Who recommended this to me. I liked it. I'll read more. I almost wanted it to be a little more seedy than it was. It was like The Lighter Side of the Dark Side of Superhero Culture. Great concept though.
