Volume 1 - 1st printing. Collects Alias (2001-2004 Marvel) #1-15. Written by BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS. Art by MICHAEL GAYDOS. Cover by DAVID MACK. Meet Jessica Jones. Once upon a time, she was a costumed super hero. But not a very good one. Her powers were unremarkable compared to the amazing abilities of the costumed icons that populate the Marvel Universe. In a city of Marvels, Jessica Jones never found her niche. Now a chain-smoking, self-destructive alcoholic with a mean inferiority complex, Jones is the owner and sole employee of Alias Investigations - a small, private-investigative firm specializing in superhuman cases. When she uncovers the potentially explosive secret of one hero's true identity, Jessica's life immediately becomes expendable. But her wit, charm and intelligence just may help her survive through another day. Thrust into the midst of a conspiracy that reaches the highest levels, has Jessica burned too many bridges to turn to old friends for help? Then, in "Rebecca, Come Home," Jessica travels to upstate New York to investigate the disappearance of a teenage girl rumored to be a mutant in a prejudiced small town. And in "Raining Men," the hard-luck PI goes on a date with ... the Astonishing Ant-Man?! Softcover, 360 pages, full color. Maturte Readers Cover price $34.99.
Volume 2 - 1st printing. Collects Alias (2001-2004 Marvel) #16-28. Written by BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS. Art by MICHAEL GAYDOS. Cover by DAVID MACK. As a costumed adventurer, Jessica Jones was plagued by a lack of self-esteem and an inability to master her superhuman powers. She hung up her cape and tights when she realized she would forever be considered a second-rate super hero. Now a tough-as-nails private investigator, Jessica returns home to find a mysterious girl in a costume hiding in her apartment, but she flies away before Jessica can find out who she is. Through sources, Jessica discovers that her intruder is Mattie Franklin, a.k.a. Spider-Woman, a teenage super hero with a connection to Daily Bugle publisher J. Jonah Jameson. With Mattie in danger, Jessica Jones must seek help from an unlikely source - Jessica Drew, the original Spider-Woman - to bring her home alive. Then, for the first time, learn all of Jessica's hidden secrets - how she got her powers and joined the Avengers, and the dark, unspoken chapter in Marvel Universe history that changed her life forever. Guest-starring Peter Parker, Jean Grey and the Avengers! Softcover, 312 pages, full color. Maturte Readers Cover price $34.99.
