Jessica Jones: Alias, Vol. 3
Brian Michael Bendis
Reading Decathlon: Day 3, Book 3
As a costumed adventurer, Jessica Jones was plagued by a lack of self-esteem and an inability to master her superhuman powers. Eventually she realized that she would forever be considered a second-rate super hero, and hung up her cape and tights. Now a tough-as-nails private investigator, Jessica returns home to find a mysterious girl in a costume hiding in her apartment, but the girl flies away before Jessica can find out who she is. Through sources, Jessica discovers that her intruder is Mattie Franklin, a.k.a. Spider-Woman, a teenage super hero with a connection to Daily Bugle publisher J. Jonah Jameson.
Wow, I like this series! I need to start watching the Netflix show. I love the private eye aspect and how we learn more about Jessica’s past in each volume. (Additionally, out of comic book ignorance, I always learn more about the Avengers and the history of other Marvel characters.) This edition was the perfect blend of mystery, new characters, humor and romance. I can’t wait for volume 4 to arrive for me!
