Did I miss something?
Jessica Jones (2016-) #1 - Michael Gaydos,David Mack,Brian Michael Bendis

Jessica Jones, ex-superhero and current private investigator, is separated from her husband, or ex-husband, Luke Cage.   She's hiding their baby and this is a huge thing: Cage sends all his hero friends to ask about Danielle, and Jessica Jones tells them it'll be a Big Thing if they keep harassing her. 

 

Meanwhile she picks up a case: a husband wakes up, says he's not married to his wife, and is in fact married to another woman.   He has a child with this woman.   Meanwhile, the lady who hired Jones can't have kids, so this may be something personal, something the husband is doing to hurt her. 

 

Or maybe, she says, it's an alternate dimension or a super villain thing.  That happens in their world.   Maybe he's crazy.   But she wants Jessica to figure it out and tell her. 

 

The problem is that without knowing why Jones was in jail or how she hid the baby during that time, without knowing what happened between her and Luke, I'm too confused to be anything but frustrated.  You don't show confusion by making the reader confused. 

 

I didn't get enough answers for me to continue, although I might later on.  For now, I got this free as a Marvel Insider - I used my points to get some free comics - so I enjoyed getting to read this.  Think I'll wait for a sale to continue, though.

Jessica Jones: Alias, Vol. 1 !!!

Thank god Prime Reading is a thing now and I could actually read this volume for free. YOU GO, AMAZON!!!

 

I loved this A LOT.

Since I watched the show Jessica Jones is like one of my favorite people, so I was really excited to read more stuff about her and I'm so glad that I finally got the chance.

 

I loved all the stories.

The artwork wasn't my thing from time to time, but that was totally okay. Cause I got more Jessica Jones in my life and that's all that I wanted and needed.

Loved it, But Still Had Problems With This One
Jessica Jones (2016-) #6 - Michael Gaydos,David Mack,Brian Michael Bendis

So in issue #6 we have Jessica Jones finally some would say turning against the mess that Carol Danvers has gotten her into. We do know that Jessica plans on exploring what she was told in the prior issue, which is that the super-heroes have purposely destroyed other realities in order to make sure the reality they all currently exist in stayed the main one.

 

We do have a swift end to some nonsense with someone who is out to get Carol and who never watched a movie before about what happens when the bad guy spills all of their plans.

 

There is some rhetoric thrown out about Carol helping Jessica with soothing Luke's anger at  her (seriously, does no one own a phone?) and then Jessica realizing that maybe she has given up way too much for such a little payoff (you think girl?).


The artwork and language made me smile since it made me think more of the Jessica Jones I saw on the Netflix show (that is a good thing). The first few issues felt off to me, and now I know why.

 

We get an appearance by Maria Hill and also seems to be in the dark about what Jessica has been up to and why and once again I just don't get the secrecy behind it.

Continuing Saga of the Mess of Jessica Jones's Life
Jessica Jones (2016-) #5 - Michael Gaydos,David Mack,Brian Michael Bendis

I honestly loved this and the next comic in the series. The colors in this one seem more vibrant, ie. I can see people's expressions. I know that the watercolor effect is kinda cool, but man oh man the first two issues I was squinting away.

 

In issue #5 we have Jessica being brought down to the jail to help out the police and talk to the husband of her former client. What the man starts to reveal to Jessica Jones about other realities and what exactly the Avengers and other so-called heroes have been up to will shock Jessica's world.


We also then having Luke Cage (still an ass) getting talked to like the child he is acting like from Ben Ulrich (see Daredevil). 

 

I still don't get why Carol Danvers had Jessica lie about what was going on to her husband (Luke Cage) and whys he felt the need to kidnap her daughter and hide her with her mother. Frankly it feels like things that romance novels would include that would tick all of us readers off. You would think that none of these people heard of having a freaking conversation before.


This one of course ends with Jessica about to make a deal with the devil.

 

I have to say though that one reason why I am starting to fall out of love with reading comics (Marvel) right now is that I don't want to have to read across different series to figure out what is going on. There are references to the Inhumans, another Civil War between the superheroes, etc. I already read Ms. Marvel (Kamala Khan) so I know enough ins and outs to figure out what people are talking about. But I really wish that most of these authors would consider these being standalones for us comic readers who don't want to dip in and out of a bunch of different series to follow one story-line.
