4) Alias vol 3: The Underneath, by Brian Michael Bendis

Third in this very enjoyable series of graphic novels by Brian Michael Bendis, featuring the continuing adventures of semi-lapsed superhero Jessica Jones. Here she tracks down a missing teenage Spiderwoman, dealing with a horrible media magnate and evil drug-dealers. I find the characterisation very nicely observed - there's a beautiful scene of Jessica in bed with on/off boyfriend, the conversation wrinkling into the sheets. Looking forward to the next one.
