Overview

Meet Jessica Jones. Once upon a time, she was a costumed super hero...but not a very good one. Her powers were unremarkable compared to the amazing abilities of the costumed icons that populate the Marvel Universe. In a city of Marvels, Jessica Jones never found her niche. Now a chain-smoking, self-destructive alcoholic with a mean inferiority complex, Jones is the owner and sole employee of Alias Investigations - a small, private-investigative firm specializing in superhuman cases. When she uncovers the potentially explosive secret of one hero's true identity, Jessica's life immediately becomes expendable. But her wit, charm and intelligence just may help her survive through another day.

This series was remarkable! In a world that doubts new ideas, and thinks that new characters won't survive I give you Alias, the star of which is created, debuts and breaks hearts right from the get go. Now a Marvel mainstay, this character will soon have her own Netflix series.

Alias is about Jessica Jones, a former Avenger who couldn't quite take the superhero life. She acts like a regular person- flaws and all- who just happens to have superpowers. The art is fabulous, especially David Mack's covers. Bendis is at the top of his game with compelling plot lines and his signature snappy dialog.
