So, remember that briefcase lady from issue #4? You don't? Well I don't blame you, but let's refresh yourself and get to the point of this post...

This was a free promotional (for the upcoming Netflix show) comic on Comixology (only eight pages) so I'm posting the full thing. I'll edit/remove them if requested.

Not much has changed as to who my favorite female character is; it's still Jessica Jones. She's a type of female character that we don't really see that much in that as the series begins she's basically in a really bad place. She was a superhero but not a really good one. She drinks. She smokes. She swears.

That being said my view is still that the character -- even though she's gotten her act together with a marriage and a kid -- has kind of suffered with her being made a supporting character on non-MAX titles. There's a rawness to the original series that you can't really get across in a mainstream title. The swearing is only a part of it.

Still, the original Alias title remains one of my favorite runs and here is the first issue. If you like it give the other posts I did a whirl and maybe even buy the trades.

I was thinking about this scene over the holiday weekend, due to unrelated family drama, and I thought I'd take a moment to talk about how it impresses me.

Alias starts out with Jessica Jones, former superhero, current private eye, and all around loser. Jessica's had a few bad years and her self esteem has suffered for it. So has the collective opinion of her friends and former colleagues. She's self-destructive, an alcoholic, and stubborn as cuss.

By issue three, she's knee-deep in a setup involving Captain America's civilian identity, and a presidential campaign. Bodies are piling up, and Jessica's been questioned about her connection to them. Nobody's answering her calls and no leads are turning up. In short, she's screwed. Desperate, she decides to approach old friend Carol Danvers, who it seems she hasn't spoken to in years.

This is our first glimpse of the complicated relationship between these characters. Jessica knew Carol back in her Jewel days. They were friends. She maybe looked up to Carol, who always flew that much higher, hit that much harder. Carol had her own struggle with alcohol, but she's recovering. Carol's still a hero, still connected, and while Jessica didn't want that life anymore - Carol is still on the inside, while Jess is on her own.

5/22 from Alias #3.
