Marvel Comics – $2.99
I keep waiting to finally be not impressed by something that Bendis writes. But the little guy just keeps writing and writing and it’s all quality. No joke! His work on Ultimate Spider-Man is already established to be quality and everyone knows about it. But its his work on Daredevil and Alias that has impressed me the most of recent.
Alias especially as it’s riding under the radar, plugging along with its quiky take on the lofe of an ex-superhero. Upcoming on its 25th issue, Alias is going to go down as one of those memorable amazing runs. I know it. I know it because every issue ends and I get pissed that I have to wait another month until the next.
Michael Gaydos’ art is to Alias as Alex Maleev’s art is to Daredevil. What I mean by that is that the pairing of the art to the writing is just perfect. I couldn’t imagine the look of Alias to be anything other than Gaydos’ textured imagery. The management of lighting and shadows is unique in and of itself.
Finally, Bendis just imagines some of the most amusing situations. For instance in this issue, our heroine Jessica Jones is having an argument with her friend Ms. Marvel on the lawn of the Avengers Mansion. Suddenly Captain America appears in the door, interrupting the argument, inviting Jessica in for tea. That’s just priceless.
