Episode 4 – Alias

After some scheduling coordination and a slight delay due to technical issues in uploading this episode, the Sequential Smarter triumvirate are together at last!

This week, your hosts Eric, Billy, and Brendan break down Alias, the series by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos, featuring the character of Jessica Jones.

  • We delve into the noir stylings of the comic, both written and visual, and how they blend into the superhero genre.
  • Hear Eric pick apart a critic of Bendis’s decompressed style and our discussion of its execution in this comic.
  • Oh, and we go into some theories about the sex lives of superheroes,  make plans to cover comics published by McDonald’s, and Brendan makes the best description of the Purple Man ever.
