Ms. Marvel, Vol. 1: No Normal (Ms. Marvel (Collected Editions) #1) Reviews
I'd been hearing good things about this book for ages, so I finally decided to pick it up.
I enjoyed it, and appreciated the fact that it wasn't just another same-old superhero origin story. But if I'm going to be completely honest here. (And I always try to be completely honest) I'll also say that it didn't really thrill me, either.
Part of the issue might be that I don't know *anything* about the original hero that the story is based on. That can make it a lot harder to get into a story.
But it's ...more
I'm going to pretend I haven't seen/read the comments and reviews that basically boil down to "a Muslim American can't be a superhero, and because this story is about a Muslim American teen, it's not really a superhero book". Despite the fact that in many ways, this is Spider-man: family issues, school issues, identity issues, except it happens to be a female character who also happens to be a person of colour and a Muslim. There is nothing in the set of issues here that wouldn't be right at hom ...more
We have all probably heard of Carol Danvers as Ms. Marvel, but now we have Kamala Khan, a New Jersey Pakistani American, who assumes the identity and takes on her role. I was very glad to see a Muslim character as a protagonist, because even though we have had “M” and “Dust”, they are not considered main characters in the way Kamala is. And it does seem to be a good series, I did win the Hugo for Best Graphic Story, however I had a few issues.
I felt as if the series, even though it has been stat ...more
Well that was so so fun! I really enjoyed it a lot. I'm not used to reading comics/graphic novels so when it ends I'm always surprised - but I really enjoyed it!
I loved all the modern day phrases and references, and Kamala is a great character.
There was a bunch of stereotyping in the book (of Muslims, mostly) but I feel like most comics end up stereotyping groups in every story. Though that is sad, it's still great to have so much diversity.
Overall a really great, fun, enjoyable read. Already ...more
This review contains *spoilers*.
Ms. Marvel follows Kamala Khan, a Muslim girl from Jersey City who is suddenly empowered with extraordinary gifts. When a strange mist descends and morphs Kamala into a shape-shifting superhuman... fitting in is the least of her problems.
Ms. Marvel also features religion, which, thank you. I love seeing positive portrayals of any religion. And the honest exploration of accepting and loving oneself made my heart sing.
This story is a definite win for me.
And there ...more
Okay, since there are a million reviews with pretty pictures from this GN (graphic novel) I'm going to keep it short as I usually do with my graphic novel reviews.
I didn't think I would like this book for reasons but then I did. One never knows!
Kamala is just a normal teenage girl with really strict parents and she's just trying to get through her life.
I think she's cute with her writing Marvel fanfic. I think I might want to look into this fanfic stuff!
I'm a little confused about how she tu ...more
this was fantastic! i was a bit confused about how she got her powers, but maybe i just need to re-read it and it'll help me understand. other than that this was so great!
