Alias Vol 1 free read ì 9 Specialising in superhuman cases When she exposes one hero's identity her life becomes expendable. Jessica Jones used to be a superhero Jewel but she s put the bright outfit away for a grunge y grrrl look and opened her own private detective business Alias Investigations While her cases are mostly cheating spouses her latest one sees her stumble across an iconic superhero s secret identity unwittingly becoming a pawn in a larger political game involving a Presidential candidate The thing that struck me the most about this comic from 2001 is how poorly it s aged The secret the first storyline revolves around is people not knowing Captain America is Steve Rogers Everyone s known Steve is Cap for so long that I forgot that once upon a time it wasn t common knowledge same as Iron Man was originally Tony Stark s bodyguard Even uaint old Avengers Mansion is still a thing in this book But it s also the tech that really dates this Steve checks his beeper Jessica uses a camcorder to record footage on a VHS tape a character uses what looks like a Palm Pilot while one character asks another if they have an email address Jessica poses as a gay dude in a chatroom for work reasons and then muses I wonder if this is the first time in the history of the internet that a guy was speaking to a girl posing as a guy ahhh the innocence The book s strength is also its weakness namely Brian Michael Bendis dialogue He must ve really fancied himself as the comics Tarantino because he has his characters natter on and on and on about nothing with the occasional swear as this is a MAX title so much of the fucking time I ll give him that there s a flow to some of it that it sounds convincing and it s sometimes interesting but there s too goddamn much of it Just when the story starts picking up pace Bendis chucks in a ridiculously lengthy conversation full of repetitive redundant dialogue to slow everything down again I just know a better writer could ve said just as much in less than half the waffle Bendis spouts And yet through all of the obnoxious amounts of dialogue and the nine issue length of this first volume roughly double the size of most Marvel books I didn t really come to know Jessica s character that well Why did she stop being a superhero We re told vaguely that she didn t fit in or something but that s it Why did she become a private detective Eh Bendis wanted to write a crime noir comic with a former superhero as the lead She just comes off as a depressed dull woman hardly a compelling protagonist The first story is an elaborate conspiracy mystery full of the usual twists you d expect from the genre even the clich d crooked politician trope is trotted out but the second was so very slight and overlong for what it was Four issues for that Come on Bendis characters are just blathering on again stretching out nothing I didn t really like Michael Gaydos ink heavy artwork or the way some of the characters rather than appear natural looked like gargoyles But the layouts of the book are really clever There s a good mix here pages without dialogue pages stuffed to the gills with it wide panels splash pages tons of little panels repeated imagery negative space it s a very creative way of engaging the reader and telling the storyThe first volume of Jessica Jones Alias is a decent detective comic fairly well executed in the classic noir style but with a girl detective Maybe if I d come across this ten years ago possibly a bit I d have been impressed with the rapid dialogue approach but I m looking past it now and seeing a lot of extended scenes where there s little else but the writer in love with hearing himself yammer on I can see why people like this one it s chatty accessible and breezy but the creative team s style and aged flavour kept me from enjoying it as much as it is it s just an ok relic but not enticing enough to keep me reading the series

Alias Vol 1 free read ì 9 Once upon a time Jessica Jone was a costumed superhero But not a very good one Now a chain smokin. A hard drinking private eye whose cases become explorations of the dark side of human nature is a character concept that has become a clich of crime fiction Ah but what if the detective is a woman who used to be a superhero Now you ve really got my attention Jessica Jones used to go by the name of Jewel when she hung around with people like the Avengers but despite super strength and the ability to fly Sort of she never really felt like one of them and eventually hung up her spandex But a gal s gotta eat and booze cost money so she tries to earn a living by getting the dirt on cheating spouses or locating people who don t want to be found Despite her best efforts to leave her old life behind she gets a couple of cases that force her to deal with superheroes again when she accidently ends up with evidence of a famous costumed crime fighter s secret identity and looks for a missing Rick Jones who is an old buddy of the Hulk sOne of the interesting aspects of a long running fictional setting like the Marvel universe is that it offers opportunities to explore different parts and ideas of it We ve seen superheroes by the dozen in this world but with Jessica we get answers to interesting uestions we haven t thought to ask What if everyone with powers isn t cut out for wearing tights and punching bad guys How do they deal with that realization What do they do with their lives after that How do you turn your back on abilities most people would love to have Long time comic readers or people who have watched the Netflix TV series know that there are some dark reasons behind Jessica s choices but we aren t there yet in this volume Fans of the show might be shocked that there s no Killgrave here yet since he was the focus of most of the first season but what we do get is this damaged woman navigating a world that feels completely beyond her while trying to do the right thing as best she can That makes for a damn fine comic bookMy one complaint is that I m not sure about the art It seems muddy and all the people including Jessica come across as kind of ugly and distorted That s probably a deliberate choice to separate this from the traditional look where everyone is gorgeous and I ve liked this style in other things I ve read especially Sean Phillips work in books like Criminal However there s something about it that doesn t set uite right with me At least not yetFair warning that even though Jessica is a Marvel character this is one of those comics that is not for kids or the easily offended There s plenty of profanity sex and violence You know all the things that make life worth living

review Alias Vol 1

Alias Vol 1 free read ì 9 G self destructive alcoholic who is the owner and sole employee of a private investigations firm. 5 stars So I recently watched the Netflix show and loved it so much so I watched it twice in a row I had never heard of Jessica Jones before viewing and I wanted to know My local library had this series available and I took a chance and I fell in love with itAlias is about Jessica a former superhero named Jewel who is now a private investigator On her most recent case she is set up by her client to accidentally discover the secret identity of another superhero and it puts her life in danger and that s all I ll sayNormally when I read graphic novels I am a naughty reader and I skim Yes it s awful I know but I didn t skim once when reading this book I was enthralled from beginning until end I love the grittiness of Jessica s world and the mix of superhero and normalness Plus I love her attitude I will say the show spoiled me on romance with Jessica and Luke Cage because there was none of that in this We only got a glimpse of Luke and I didn t like what I met Onto the next book
