The story follows Jessica Jones, who like her possible namesake Halo is a somewhat ordinary girl fed up with extraordinary circumstances. Jones is a retired superhero who runs a private detective agency and rarely makes use of her abilities, which are vaguely described at best. She makes dodgy decisions, drinks a lot, smokes, sleeps with the wrong men, and serves as a wholly rounded human heart to this series. By the end of the run, I was genuinely worried about her- one issue in which a past tormentor escapes confinement and pursues her is the tensest thing I've ever read, any medium- and found myself flying through the books in a sitting each. Bendis is a natural storyteller and a gifted linguist all in one, a rare combination in the field of comics. His situations are as compelling as his dialogues. His characters are full.
Artwork is provided by Michael Gaydos, whose style is representative of what appears to me be the anti-norm in comics work these days, a kind of dark, messy and almost ugly style that counterpoints the work done by more mainstream artists.Read more ›
Alias is the series which kicked off the MAX imprint from Marvel which was aimed at a mature audience.

Jessica Jones is probably the most complex Marvel character to date. Her character is well layered and is basically going through life as a X-hero going through post-traumatic stress syndrome. It is an interesting concept that makes for an entertaining story arc that takes Jessica on a journey connected to, but on the fringes of, the major players in the Marvel Universe. Great read, and I can’t wait to see how they adapt this character for live-action. Here’s hoping they do Jessica justice.
