My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This morning I finished watching the Netflix Jessica Jones series and I did not want it to be over; so on to volume one of the Alias comic book from the early 2000’s.

Wow! I really like the two stories in this volume. Very sophisticated and nuanced writing, if slightly dated, by the technology being used in the stories. It was a page turner, and I read it in one sitting.

The first story is about Jessica getting duped into making a potentially embarrassing video of a well know super hero. Who tricked her and why?

The second story is about Rick Jones; can’t really say much about that one or I’d ruin it for you, but it’s a very psychological story.

Too bad I can’t say I care for the art, which I only found to be passable, at best. It’s mood inducing but pretty unattractive and dull.

This is one of the few things from the comic that directly made it into the TV series:

This little conversation between Jessica and Carol Danvers at the beginning of the second storyline really made me laugh.

There is a scene in the Jessica Jones netflix series that sort of plays homage to this famous? infamous page…
