Editorial Reviews

The Washington Post
Jessica Jones, the protagonist of Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos's cult-favorite comics series "Alias" (no relation to the TV show), used to be a superheroine called Jewel, but she wasn't very good at the capes-and-cowls business, and gave it up to become a private investigator.

She drinks too much, is prone to foul-mouthed blow-ups and mostly sleeps with other C-list super-types; she's bubbling over with self-destructive fury at her own failures, especially when she's around the heroes who used to be her colleagues. In other words, she's a way for Bendis and Gaydos to play with the nasty underside of superhero comics' peculiar conventions, and for Bendis to show off his knack for barbed, stammering, David Mamet-inspired dialogue. — Douglas Wolk
