Free Comic Book Day is right around the corner. With a staggering amount of releases and with some vanishing in practically no time we thought we’d give you the advanced scoop on what to grab and what to avoid. Yesterday Martian Luthor Kang checked in with his haul, today I’ll be reviewing what I was able to get my grubby little paws on.

Every once in a while you’ll read something that just seems perfectly tailored to your tastes and interests. Since I seemed to been having such gold luck with Brian Michael Bendis lately I thought I’d check out his series Alias. It turned out to be exactly what I was looking for.
The story centers on Jessica Jones, a former super hero who has become a private investigator. She’s washed up and angry. Desperation and hard living had made her callous and beaten her down. I always liked the idea of seeing things from a non-costumed or “heroes” perspective in a world that’s full of them. This is one of the reasons that made the Marvels miniseries so successful. What we get here is basically film noir done Marvel style (and no, not that thankfully). It’s a hell of an idea.
