Meet Jessica Jones.
Once, she was a rising star in the world of super-hero adventurers. She had it all: the superhuman powers, the spandex costume, even an offer of membership in the legendary Avengers. Everything seemed perfect, until a clash against a sadistic criminal turned her dream of a hero's life into a brutal nightmare.
Years later, Jones is the chain-smoking, hard-drinking owner of Alias Investigations. Her firm specializes in cases no normal private eye will touch, those requiring an intimate knowledge of the super-hero world. Cases that take Jones deep into the dark underbelly of the Marvel Universe - where former super heroes become helpless pawns of drug pushers, and teenage mutants mysteriously vanish from their small-town homes. As Jones fights to redeem other heroes fallen from grace, can she finally close the book on her own demons?
Alias was the inaugural title in Marvel Comics' uncompromising MAX imprint, featuring stories aimed squarely at adult comic-book readers. This volume collects the complete 28-issue series by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos, plus the one-shot What If Jessica Jones Had Joined the Avengers? - enhanced by a bounty of all-new, behind-the-scenes bonus material. Nominated for the prestigious Eisner Award, and the recipient of numerous other awards and critical accolades, Alias is a modern milestone in Marvel Comics history.
