Fans of the Jessica Jones Netflix series will love this; however I do advise that they read the Alias collection (1-4) first, as it gives more context to the series. Reading Civil War II will also provide context to some of the events that occur. I’m happy to report that the art style remains the same, and am especially pleased to see that the cover is as beautiful as always.


Spoiler Warning


I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect from Uncaged, even though I had read all of Alias. That being said, I can safely say I wasn’t expecting the level of complexity given, which was pretty impressive. Another huge bonus? We get a cameo from one of my favorite Marvel characters of all time: Captain Marvel! I know I shouldn’t be surprised, as Jessica and Carol are bffs, but it’s still really exciting to have any crossover like that happen.

Jessica went to prison; the reason for her arrest isn’t specifically cited. She’s hidden the baby from Luke and everyone else; in literally the last place any of them would ever look. Even after details are revealed about what is going on with Jessica (IE her doing a huge favor for Captain Marvel), I’m not sure I fully understand why she hid her child from Luke as well as everyone else. Perhaps I missed something in an avenger’s plotline? Or in Luke’s comic perhaps? I feel like it isn’t something he’ll easily forgive, and will likely be a main focus for the next volume.

As stated above, the events in Civil War II do come into play a bit; one of the women that Captain Marvel arrested, Allison has a bit of a vendetta against all superheroes now, and appears to be turning into a bit of villain herself on her journey to destroy them all.


About Liz

I am an avid animal lover, photographer, graphic designer, and much more. I love to create art, and am willing to try and artistic technique at least once. I am particularly fond of artworks involving a lot of emotion and color. The purpose of my blog is for me to be open and honest with myself and the world about my attempts to grow as an artist. The facts: My favorite color is constantly changing, so don’t worry about trying to keep up with that! I’m in my 20’s, married, and looking to find the perfect job for me (ideally something that can involve my creativity or my love of animals). I have 6 cats (If we’re being technical, I have 2 cats and my parents have 4), a bearded dragon, a parakeet, and two betas. I adore all of them, and they frequently are my photography models. My blog will primarily be consisting of my 365 (366) photography project, updated daily (hopefully). I’m also working on a 52 weeks project, where I try a new type of photography style or technique each week. That will be updated as the photos are processed.
