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 second collected volume of Ms. Marvel, Generation Why, is now available! If you’ve been waiting for it, wait no longer! Spoilers below.

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

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

Review: Ms. Marvel #3

Do these have titles? I’m not sure these have titles. No spoilers! Back again with Ms. Marvel! I hope not every issue (and review) will be focused on Kamala Khan’s “Muslim superheroine” status, but again, that’s what makes the comic notable at this point, and this issue brushes up against her religion in a more…… Continue reading Review: Ms. Marvel #3

Review: Ms. Marvel #2

In issue #2, Kamala saves someone’s life, gets a handle on her new transformation powers, and makes it home from the party. What I liked: I still love Kamala, and I’m really enjoying the art. I can’t wait to see her start interacting with other heroes, hopefully including her idol Captain Marvel!  I like the way she fumbles…… Continue reading Review: Ms. Marvel #2
