Alias | Brian Michael Bendis, Michael Gaydos
"Meet Jessica Jones, one-time costumed heroine turned private investigator. After realizing that her powers were unremarkable compared to those of the icons in the Marvel Universe, Jones gave up being a super hero and eventually opened up a detective agency. While her intent to help others is intact, her personal behavior is anything but valiant: She is bitter, resentful and self-destructive. In lieu of professional help, Jessica battles her inferiority complex and depression with a chain-smoking habit and alcoholic tendencies. In spite of her self-imposed exile from the spandex crowd, Jessica's cases continually lead her back to her old circle of acquaintances, which only fuels her angst even more"--Amazon.

This is for Vol. 1 of the Jessica Jones: Alias series.

I really enjoyed it. Jessica is so bad ass in the show I wanted to read the comics. They are really good but I prefer the Jessica in the show.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Jessica Jones is a former superhero who has traded in her costume for a private investigator badge, digging up the dirt on people, often finding out what people already suspect. While the book does a good job establishing the character and her role in the Marvel universe, it felt like a standard p.i. story. Potential definitely, but not completely fulfilled in this collection.

I loved this! I watched the first season of Jessica Jones with no background knowledge of Jessica Jones and enjoyed it. I finally decided to pick up the comic and enjoyed it 1000000% more. I will definitely continue reading Jessica Jones graphics.

Just reacquainting myself with JJ.

ulrichyumiodd I loved those comics! 14mo
Awk_Word_Smith @ulrichyumiodd I love that with JJ they could explore someone who completely rejected the concept of superhero. Not a reluctant hero, a complete rejection of that mantle. 14mo
ulrichyumiodd @Awk_Word_Smith That's true. She is a very interesting character! She might actually be my favorite "superhero". I love her personality and her "antihero" vibe. 14mo

I‘ve been MIA from Litsy lately and haven‘t done much reading for the last 2 weeks. I have been down the rabbit hole of depression again. 🙄 So frustrating. Planning another late night binge of Jessica Jones. I hope everyone is doing well. I will try to catch up on what everyone has been reading. If anyone else is struggling with depression, please know that you are not alone. Much love, Littens! ❤️❤️

I for sure had to go with Jessica Jones. What a powerful character! She‘s my favorite hero. I find I relate a lot to her character, her story is all the feels.
Can‘t wait for s2 as well! 💜🖤📚 #jessicajones #marvel #comics #books #superheros #thriller #mondayreads #monday #leadingladies #women

I'm pretty sure this was the first superhero comic I've ever read. I watched the Netflix series a few months ago and it was interesting to see which things they changed and what they kept the same. I really liked both and I'm excited to read and watch more of Jessica's story!

⭐️⭐️
I know nothing about Marvel and have never really taken to comics.

Nevertheless, I needed to find a "Superhero comic with a female lead" for #ReadHarder and Jessica Jones seemed closest to my style - world weary, hard-drinking and not super interested in being a superhero. This was like a comic book version of a Dashiell Hammett novel.
After watching the trailer for Jessica Jones I think I would enjoy this more as a TV series.

Marchpane The tv show has the added benefit of David Tennant who makes anything highly watchable! 2y
Redheadrambles @Marchpane yes I saw that ! I also like Krysten Ritter and it looks like it has more substance to it than what is presented in Vol 1. 2y
batsy I really liked Krysten Ritter in the show but couldn't keep watching it for some reason. I thought the comics were just OK, too. (But I think it's just because I don't get on too well with Marvel and superhero things...) 2y
Redheadrambles @batsy yes I hear you on not feeling the Marvel universe and such ;) 2y

I often forget that I get free downloads through Amazon Prime but this was a good chance to try out the comic book functionality of my Kindle Paperwhite. This volume shows Jessica as the former superhero and new detective but does not introduce the darkest villain of all time that played a prominent role in the tv show (also on Amazon Prime). This a "mature content" comic with explicit content, not a surprise if you've seen the show.

Redheadrambles Yeah I think I need to get into this show. The book seemed to suffer from lack of a villain - I guess it evolves more in subsequent volumes? 2y
ReadingEnvy @Redheadrambles I'm not sure! The show's villain is so dark I had nightmares. 2y
Redheadrambles @ReadingEnvy oh ! Is that the David Tennant character ? You have me intrigued... 2y
ReadingEnvy @Redheadrambles yes! *Shiver* 2y

I can't find this exact tpb here so just posting under general title. I love Jessica Jones. Alias was my (unintentional) intro to the Marvel universe years ago. Pulse was not as great - but I still liked it. When I saw this at the library I was super excited - more JJ and a new series!! Um, NOPE. These are issues collected from other series that happen to have Jessica in them. It's not cohesive I was confused more often than not. Disappointing.

Here's the thing about this comic: Jessica is the same as she is in the Netflix show but the plot is different, and I'm okay with that. Bendis is a phenomenal writer and Jessica will always have a huge place in my heart, and I especially love Carol in these as well :)
