    Comics Recap - Sofia Marlasca Aug 9, 2015

    Ms. Marvel #17 delivered everything we were promised and more, effectively handling Marvel's big event without outshining the anticipated Kamala/Carol meeting. It is a fun read that promises more action in future issues, yet is enjoyable simply forthe interaction of the two lead women. It was a hard gig to pull off, but Wilson and Alphona didan incredible job. Hopefully, we'll see more of these two's interactions in the future. Read Full Review

    Wilson and Alphona have put their Wonder Twin rings back together to churn out yet another winner. Eisner? This comic deserves the Congressional Medal of Honor. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Aug 6, 2015

    This issue achieves a proper balance between humorous and whimsical elements on one hand and respecting the dire scope of the "Last Days" conflict on the other. G. Willow Wilson writes a great dynamic between the two heroes, culminating in a touching scene as Kamala grapples with the fact that she can't save everyone. Read Full Review

    This issue is littered with little moments where Kamala effortlessly shows that she's a great hero, whether she's convincing some ne'er do wells to lend a hand instead of looting, or teaming up with Captain Marvel to beat up a bad guy, Kamala Khan remains the best new superhero in years.

    Overall, Ms. Marvel #17 is a fun, enjoyable issue with the team-up of our dreams. It balances its tone between its typical quirky humor, sober reality, and the heroic maturation of its protagonist. Though it's sadly not in happier circumstances, it is a joy to finally see Captain Marvel and Ms. Marvel join forces in the pages of Kamala's book, and I'm certainly looking forward to the Ladies Marvel laying down the law and rescuing Aamir when issue #18 arrives.

    While Ms. Marvel #17 is a strong single issue, it feels incomplete, and will likely seem more eventful when read all at once with the rest of the "Last Days" Ms. Marvel arc. This new twist with Kamala, Amir and the Inhumans is intriguing, but seems insignificant compared to the Incursion event threatening Earth. The lack of urgency is a problem with Wilson's writing, and more an issue with the timing of the various "Last Days" events. With the luxury of an ongoing solo series, Wilson can take the time to set up future storylines against the backdrop of Secret Wars. Month-to-month readers will find Ms. Marvel #17 a deeply satisfying issue, especially for Kamala and Carol's relationship, but new readers will want to wait until this arc is finished to catch up.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Aug 6, 2015

    Ms. Marvel has a solid entry here overall though it doesn't come across quite as well as one might have hoped. Kamala is spot on throughout all of this as she has an utter blast with her idol here, even amid the end of times, and the way she pulls herself together and realizes that she's become very comfortable with who she is – while still struggling with pieces of that – is well done. Kamala once again is the highlight of her own book, which is how it should be. Sadly, the Captain Marvel appearance doesn't feel like it works for the most part, or more that it's working from a one-sided kind of approach. She's certainly not wanting to be idolized and she does say all the right things, but it's so stiff and distanced in my reading of it that it doesn't bring out Carol's personality at all, which is unfortunate. Perhaps in the next life… Read Full Review

    If you're going to have a book invaded by another comic's storyline, "Ms. Marvel" #17 shows us how it should be handled. Wilson and Alphona never lose sight of what their readers want, even as they get some added gravitas from the looming end of the world. Nice job. Read Full Review
