Jessica's first run is called Alias. Have you read that already? If not, do.

It was my favorite book at the time


I haven't read it. I have it on my hard drive though. I pretty much have everything on my hard drive. :-) I just put it on my iPad and will start on it this week!

Read the first Vol of Alias. You guys were right. I do like it a lot. Bendis is really excellent at street level characters. The art is interesting. It's both perfect for the vibe of the book and also in some ways horrible. Michael Gaydos can't draw a face to save his life. It seems more real though. I'm going to stick with it.

I didn't know I would be rejected. I've got $0.12ers! I have about 40 that were less than $1. I thought they would have thrown an offer my way.

What ever happened to the RMer who had the comic shop / used video game store?

I finished Alias. It certainly lived up to its reputation. On to The Pulse next.

No, it's not bad, just tonally different. IIRC, big stuff happens in that annual.

OK I'm on to the current JJ series. Is there anything I should have read prior to this series that explains why she is where she is now or does that get explained as the series goes on?

I honestly have no idea. BUT, I started reading it dry and have had no problem keeping up with what's going on in it.

So not only do I find out that this is being published, it's the 2nd series? Jesus. I need to get to a comic book store.

Quote:
Premise[edit]

A year after the Autobots, G.I. Joe, M.A.S.K., Rom, Action Man, and the Micronauts stopped fighting each other and joined forces together to foil the conspiracy orchestrated by Miles Mayhem, Baron Karza, and the Dire Wraiths, Earth is finally ready to join as an official member of Cybertron's Council of Worlds, until the ceremony is interrupted by a pre-emptive nuclear strike.[2]

The mastermind behind the attack is G.I. Joe's founder turned traitor, General Joe Colton a.k.a. Baron Ironblood,[3] who has assembled a group of nefarious villains to revive Cobra, in order to destroy all Transformers, as he believes they are in league with the Dire Wraiths.[4]

Now, Optimus Prime, Scarlett, and the other heroes must unite again to defeat Colton and Cobra before another war between the two planets begins.[5]

I still occasionally read the odd issue of GI Joe. The crossovers with the Transformers are never as cool as your 10 year old self used to imagine though.
