By Magnum Valentino TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 10 Jun. 2010
Format: Paperback
I'll let this review serve for both volumes of Alias, as you're not going to want just one once you've read the other. I've only read one issue ever written by Bendis that I didn't like, and his work here is amongst the best of his career. I've heard him called a hack by jealous readers who can't hack (aha, a pun) that one man can write so many consistently top-drawer, massively popular books at once. Brian Bendis is no hack. He is the best regular comics writer in the business today, and Alias may well be his masterpiece.

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.

If you're looking for something different to the usual Marvel read then I would recommend the Alias series. Jessica Jones is an example of character development at its best. This series has an intriguing plot, great art, and the writing is good is you don't mind the swearing. The book does have a lot of swearing in it but don't let that put you off. This is a first-class series and I highly recommend it.

Alias is the series which kicked off the MAX imprint from Marvel which was aimed at a mature audience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding 14 Jan. 2014
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com

I’ve really been enjoying seeing the Marvel Cinematic Universe come to life, so when I heard there would be a Netflix series based on a character called Jessica Jones I wanted to find out who she was. The more I heard the more I was directed to check out Alias. I wasn’t disappointed.

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.

This is everything a comic should be. Brilliant writing, the artwork fit the tone I f the series, and I love how Bendis wrote her into continuity. A must read for understanding Jessica Jones and her motivations. A+

Good book, fantastic writing. Covers are beautiful but the art inside is nothing like it sadly. Overall though, it's a great buy and a great read for any comic lover.
