Review: Ms. Marvel #15

This’ll be a short review, because there’s just so much I don’t want to spoil! Ms. Marvel #15 is a triumphant ending to the Kamala-crush arc. It’s everything I hoped it would be — Kamala realizes Kamran is a jerk, indeed a villain, but more importantly she realizes that it’s not her fault. Kamran tries…… Continue reading Review: Ms. Marvel #15

The Sunday Post – G. Willow Wilson!

I’m currently reading the four-volume Vertigo series Air by G. Willow Wilson, the writer behind Ms. Marvel and the author of Alif the Unseen. I’m making my way through her earlier works, and so far I’m still impressed! Air is odd, it’s about a flight attendant who’s afraid of heights… And it turns out she has crazy dream-flying powers. It’s one of those comics…… Continue reading The Sunday Post – G. Willow Wilson!

Review: Ms. Marvel #13

Big spoilers!! Just as a refresher, last month we had a Valentine’s special in which Kamala’s best friend (and superhero-gear provider) Bruno revealed (to the audience) that he has a crush on Kamala. The current issue was advertised as the one in which Ms. Marvel develops a crush on a newcomer. So, at first I…… Continue reading Review: Ms. Marvel #13

Review: Ms. Marvel #11

Ms. Marvel #11 is the final installment in the four-issue “Generation Why” storyline, finishing off the Inventor’s arc. It feels like it’s been a long time since the last issue and I think this is one of those times when serial storytelling isn’t at its best. This whole issue is about polishing off the arc, but it’s…… Continue reading Review: Ms. Marvel #11

2014 End-of-Year Book Survey

For several years now, I’ve done a categorized “Best Books of the Year” list — originally on Facebook, and on the blog last year. For 2014 I felt like trying something new, and The Perpetual Page-Turner’s End-of-Year Book Survey linkup is just the thing! It’s a little long, so I may have a lot of “no…… Continue reading 2014 End-of-Year Book Survey

Review: Alif the Unseen by G. Willow Wilson

You have no idea how much I want you to read this book. I have a confession to make — I hardly ever pay attention to who writes my comic books. Sometimes I see a name and it looks vaguely familiar. Very rarely do I remember the names or who writes what. It’s all pretty…… Continue reading Review: Alif the Unseen by G. Willow Wilson

Review: Ms. Marvel #10

After a sad Ms. Marvel hiatus last month, we’re back with a very interesting tenth issue. In the cliffhanger of issue #9, we learned that the Inventor’s teenage human batteries are actually volunteers. It turns out that he’s convinced them this is the best way to save the planet, by using human power rather than oil. He’s…… Continue reading Review: Ms. Marvel #10

Review: Ms. Marvel #8

I totally thought Ms. Marvel #8 was out NEXT week! Why can I never keep this straight? I can’t believe it’s been eight months, either. But I’m subscribed on Comixology and issue #8 appeared in my inbox, so here we are again. Number 8 opens a new four-issue arc, and as the first issue, it touches on…… Continue reading Review: Ms. Marvel #8
