“Jessica Jones: Alias [Vol.4]” by Brian Bendis & Michael Gaydos

I only realised I had no clue about how exactly Jessica had obtained her powers the moment I opened this last volume. It was a first step down a memory lane that grew into quite an experience. Again, they managed to create an emotional balance that had its peaks without ever being too much of… Continue reading “Jessica Jones: Alias [Vol.4]” by Brian Bendis & Michael Gaydos

“The apartment faces an alley and is entered by a fire escape, a structure whose name is a touch of accidental poetic truth, for all these huge buildings are always burning with the slow and implacable fires of human desperation.” Tennessee Williams astounds me with his ethereal plays.

Condensed in these words resides a truth that could swallow the world into wholeness. “This poem was written to… Continue reading “Let Them Eat Chaos” by Kate Tempest

“Jessica Jones: Alias [Vol. 1]” by Brian Bendis & Michael Gaydos

I seem to have fallen in love with my very first comic book. Mind you, I have enjoyed the ones I have read up until this point, but for some reason I seem to have connected with Jessica Jones in a different way. I have given the matter some thought. Could this be because of… Continue reading “Jessica Jones: Alias [Vol. 1]” by Brian Bendis & Michael Gaydos
