Todd & Joe Have Issues 06/08/17: Alias #10

As we have discussed in prior installments of “Have Issues” we talked about new characters created in the last 20 years and Brian Michael Bendis, now they are smashed together this week with Jessica Jones, specifically Alias #10.

A character created from whole cloth, debuted in 2001 in the MAX line featuring characters not much was doing with at the time like Luke Cage, Spider-Woman, Speedball among others to tell some seedier tales of drug use, abuse and so forth. But this ones about Spider-Man:

Off the success of the prior story arc where Jessica did not stooge off Captain America secret identity (remember when superheroes had secret identies?), J Jonah Jameson attempts to hire the former Jewel (pronouns, PAL!) to find out who is under Spider-Man’s mask. He opens up the coffers at the Daily Bugle, writes a blank check for this information. Does Jessica take him up off on the offer? Does she already know who it is?

Not to spoil TOO much of the issue, but this leads to Jessica Jones getting two more ongoing serieses in the next several years, becomes a prominent member of the Avengers, is the star of the Defenders comic (out next week!) and is the star of TWO Netflix original serieses! Not bad for a wash out superhero!

Any discussion, thoughts, feelings, criticisms of this week’s selection can be placed below in the comments section. As well as suggestions about future choices for one shot issues to add to our list.
