Sidekicked Issue #26 – A.K.A. Vol 2

This issue, in honor of POME’s Masquerade week, Sidekicked discusses a character whose identity is so conflicted, her comic book is titled ‘Alias.’ Alias is neither her super name, nor her civilian name, but a reference to her world of shadows, fears, and doubts. What makes AKA Jessica Jones potentially both Marvel’s darkest and most breathtaking cinematic story? Listen and find out.

David is a cool human and the co-host of the Sidekicked Podcast with Vincent Powell! He hates long walks on the beach, but only because there is so much sand. He knows more about Marvel than DC. He is a feminist, regardless of the fact that he is a guy. You haven't heard of him, well he's a big deal in Latveria.

Finding My Monsters

My fascination began with the 1979 film Alien. I was six when my parents let me watch it with them one night.
