    Geeked Out Nation - Kate Coenen Mar 14, 2015

    Ms. Marvel #13 is as exciting as meeting your first crush, with characters that feel real, fresh, and alive. You feel for Kamala as she struggles not only with super-powered villains but with normal teenage stuff. All this plus an upbeat sense of humor makes Ms. Marvel one of the most fun and unique books out there. G. Willow Wilson is crafting a standout story, and I can't wait to see what's in store for Kamala next. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Jessica Boyd Mar 12, 2015

    This being the first issue of a brand new arc, Wilson has made a point of lacing in some key plot threads that could potentially turn character's heads in any direction, at any point. For now we are given the idea that Kamala has finally found someone she can relate to, confide in and crush on. However, if you look close, and think too long, you might immediately become paranoid about his intentions. When you're not sure where things are going, aren't those the most fun comics to read?

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Mar 11, 2015

    Ms. Marvel #13 is a very enjoyable and fun way to start the new story arc. “Crushed” introduced a lot of fun ideas to explore and interesting characterization only bolstered by the writing and artwork that work wonderfully together. Pick Ms. Marvel #13 up and enjoy the ride. Read Full Review

    Will the more nefarious branches of Kamala's terrigen-enhanced family tree lure her away from her Carol Danvers-inspired heroism? Should we find Kamron's good looks and passion for MMORPGs as suspect as I do right now? This issue will not answer either of those questions, but you should pick it up, share some theories with me, and add Ms. Marvel to your box today. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - Magen Cubed Mar 13, 2015

    Miyazawas lively figure work is a great addition to this series. The highly expressive, noodle-limbed Kamala breaks through the boundaries of panels and gutters in wild gestural motions, always moving, never static. From the flutter of her scarf, to the sweep of her hair, to her wide range of exaggerated poses and expressions, Miyazawa wonderfully realizes her youthful dynamism in charming, memorable ways. As ever, colorist Herrings pastel palettes are a beautiful complement to Kamalas bright, energetic world. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Mar 14, 2015

    Ms. Marvel #13 is a prime example of why this is my favorite comic these days. This issue borders on being amini-masterpiece. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Mar 12, 2015

    The best I can say for this issue is that the romantic angle proved engrossing enough that I honestly didn't care if Wilson ever transitioned back into superheroics. But she does, and those scenes offer a nice balance to the romantic elements as Kamala continues learning the ropes and making mistakes. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Jess Camacho Mar 12, 2015

    The coloring team Ian Herring and Irma Knivila do an amazing job. Herring is the regular colorist on this book and he never disappoints. He uses a great mix of bright colors with neutrals but it never feels off. The one off villain in this issue has a power set that could prove to be a challenge to color but it's dynamic and almost pops off the page. They do a great job and while the focus tends to always be on the very fun script, the art team deserves a lot more credit. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Molly Jane Kremer Mar 16, 2015

    Already thirteen issues in without a single stumble, Ms. Marvel is still the book to beat for matching amounts of action and humor, and so, so much heart. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Mar 13, 2015

    While the recent run of issues has largely left me cool to the book, though not the character, Ms. Marvel has a pretty solid installment this time around. Getting back to the family side of the cast, touching on her time a Attilan and giving her someone that she might not only fall for but also be able to confide in is all important changes that the book needs to grow. Though I'm not a fan of the controlling nature of her parents, I'm glad to have them back in the picture as it helps to remind the things that have made Kamala who she is. The action side here is a little forced and feels rather old school in a certain way, but it helps to set into motion other events and that's what counts in the end. Simple and fun, but wrapped up in some good character material throughout the book. And enough to get me to follow this arc to completion at the least. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Mar 14, 2015

    There was something classic about the first year of Ms. Marvel. I was neither the first nor, by any means, the last to compare her to Peter Parker. For me and, I think, pretty much every person I've spoken to about the series, there's something about Ms. Marvel that feels like coming home. However, in perhaps the boldest and most heartening move of the series' short lifespan, in Ms. Marvel #13 G. Willow Wilson starts to change up the formula. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - F.D. White Mar 12, 2015

    With the introduction of new supporting characters, and a larger Inhuman presence, Ms. Marvel continues to be one of the best books Marvel puts out, even when they tell a smaller story about a girl with a crush. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Mar 11, 2015

    The additions to "Ms. Marvel" this month all have a lot of promise and, based on the previous twelve issues, I'm eager to see what's going to happen next. "Ms. Marvel" already had a good supporting cast, but there's definitely room for Kamran to stick around, with any luck. With the Inhuman presence in the title also picking up, here's hoping that more writers will follow Wilson's lead on how to handle them. So far, so good. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Connor Frigon Mar 15, 2015

    Unfortunately Ms. Marvel #13 has to meet the companies' editorial demands. Its no secret that the Inhumans are taking over the oppressed minority role once held by the mutants, both on-screen and on print. At this point, Kamala is the onlyreallysuccessful Inhuman character, and Marvel is using her to pave the way for the Inhuman takeover. This isnt subtle. The book opens in a training room in New Attilan (the danger room in the Xavier school) and leads to a villain that calls normal humans a subspecies and lesser beings who announces that there are multiple factions (The Morlocks, the Brotherhood) that oppose Queen Medusas (Professor Xavier) leadership. I got so frustrated reading this issue because Ive seen these plot points repeated thousands of times in the X-men. If Marvel is so desperate to replace the mutants, do it in Uncanny X-men or Inhuman and leave Ms. Marvel alone. Read Full Review
