    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Jul 16, 2014

    Its certainly not a major complaint and the new artist acquits himself amazingly well, which isnt an easy feat when filling in for someone with such a one-of-a-kind look as Alphona. But Wyatts look is definitely all his own as well, so the uplifting tone of whimsy is maintained seamlessly. This is, very simply, one of the most fun books on the shelf and this issue continues that. Even Mr. Jack-Of-All-Books fits in perfectly and Im actually hoping he sticks around for a few more issues, not just because of who he is, but how well I think hed fit in...or really NOT fit in, which is always the funnier option.

    Newsarama - George Marston Jul 16, 2014

    It's hard to call a comic perfect - even when a title is consistently great, there's almost always somewhere for it to go. So instead, I will simply say that Ms. Marvel is incredibly timely. In a time when the face of fandom is changing, and readers are clamoring for books and heroes that more accurately reflect the world's diversity, Ms. Marvel is aiming for the bullseye of the zeitgeist, and coming pretty damn close to the mark. It's hard to find a book that is as energetic and upbeat as Ms. Marvel, let alone one starring a female person of color that bucks the stereotypes while staying true to culture being portrayed.

    After six issues, I feel very comfortable saying that Ms. Marvel has the wit of Spider-Man, the heroics of the X-men, and a personality that is all her own. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Sean Ian Mills Jul 21, 2014

    Ms. Marvel #6 is the perfect example of why this comic is so much fun. Even though it's the familiar story of a teenager discovering super-powers and choosing to become a hero, Wilson and her team have struck gold in creating a truly original, wonderfully personable character in Kamala Khan. And with the origin story out of the way, now it's time for Kamala to shine like the brilliant star she is, in a series that should have everybody talking! Read Full Review

    Hyper Geeky - ClumsyG Jul 24, 2014

    Issue #6 is an amazing issue that can stand alone just for its ability to make you smile. This is a comic book in the truest sense of the word, and Wilson's mastery of the scripts " Khan's geek-speak and pop-culture references " makes this a compelling title that reads very well. The visuals also add something to an incredible title that's a winner for Marvel. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Magen Cubed Jul 17, 2014

    Artist Jacob Wyatt steps in after Adrian Alphona and delivers a truly enjoyable reading experience, making his mark on the series. His line art is clean and detailed, with highly expressive characters that make the most of Kamalas humor and physicality. Subtle design choices like Kamalas scarf always fluttering in the wind add an element of motion to nearly every panel, bringing a youthful energy to Kamalas presence on the page. Choosing to frequently white out Kamala's eyes in the domino mask gives her a very cartoonish appearance, further highlightingher fun and over-the-top expressions. As ever Herrings color palettes are thoughtful and lovely, from the soft warm tones of Kamalas visit to the mosque to the cool blues and turquoises of the sewer sequences. Issue after issue, this book is a visual treat, and Ms. Marvel #6 is no exception. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Jul 19, 2014

    A lot of hyperbolic things were said about Ms. Marvel's opening arc but, for any blemishes, it seems undeniably poised to become a classic, a love letter to fans that will be remembered and imitated for years. A fusion of classic comics nostalgia and the approaching future of the medium, it was only natural to wonder if the series could hold on to that level of quality. Somehow, Ms. Marvel #6 proves itself the best issue yet. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Kristina Poffenroth Jul 24, 2014

    Jacob Wyatt did a great job of picking up on Adrian Alphona left off in the art. Its a seamless transition between artists, and he still captures Kamala Khans essence. He does draw her without irises in a lot of the panels with her mask on, but it mirrors Wolverines face, so I was almost wondering if it was just a physical reaction from Kamala being so excited to meet him.

    Florida Geek Scene - Touch of Grey Jul 23, 2014

    I love this comic. It's funny, it's smart, and it feels like a book about a real person. But more importantly than all of that, it gives representation to kids who've been sorely lacking. I've been an X-Men fan for most of my life because of a Jewish girl named Kitty Pryde who can walk through walls, in whom I saw myself, only infinitely cooler. I can only hope that Muslim girls see themselves in Kamala, and become lifelong comic fans because of her. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jess Camacho Jul 17, 2014

    This is a superhero comic that sets itself apart from the rest of the books on the stand, but it does so without trying too hard. It's that kind of grace that makes this an enjoyable read again and again. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Jul 16, 2014

    Ms. Marvel #6 is an enjoyable and fun issue of the series. It's charming, funny, has a very likeable and developed main character, and good looking artwork. For those wondering if they should stick around after the long and drawn out first arc, stick around; this may be just what you are looking for. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jul 17, 2014

    Ms. Marvel #6 displays the endless potential that comes with Ms. Marvel roaming the streets of New Jersey. She's more established in her role as a hero, there's a lot of mental exploration to guide her, the threat has been established, and from here anything goes now that she has had her first encounter with a legitimate superhero. As long as G. Willow Wilson has fun writing this series, it will surely continue to be fun for us as well. Read Full Review

    Stray Observations - In this issue, Kamala openly refers to The Circle Q as her secret headquarters. I called that shit two months ago! Glad to see Ms Wilson also saw the continued storytelling and character-building potential in the convenience store. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Taylor Jul 18, 2014

    At the end of the day, this book continues to impress month after month. This issue marks an important checkpoint that has been passed, showing that the book can maintain its charm when interacting with the larger Marvel Universe, and also showing that it works well even without its inaugural creative team. If you're still on the fence, I highly recommend that you give it a try. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Lilith Wood Jul 21, 2014

    Wyatt has one more guest issue before Alphona comes back. It will be interesting to see whether Wilson wrote this issue as more of a superhero story because it was a way to advance the plot while providing a nice set-piece for a guest artist with his strengths. Maybe she and Alphona will circle back later to spend more time on Kamala’s friendship with Bruno, her relationship to her parents, and the way she fits into her community and school. Or maybe this is a whole new phase for Ms. Marvel, and we will just have to see how it feels when Alphona’s influence is added back into the mix. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Oct 3, 2014

    Guest star arcs tend to be downers for me since it changes the dynamic for the most part as they don't really fit with the overall narrative. Wilson does some decent stuff here in trying to tie Wolverine into it, but it's just not all that interesting as I'd rather see Kamala being Kamala and handling things in her own way. We do get that from time to time here before he shows up, so that's a saving grace to be sure. I also like the youthful naivety of Kamala in meeting one of her idols and bringing in some current social media phrases to try and make it feel timely. It works well and makes for a weird sort of relationship, but that's pretty much how most guest star issues are like. It also doesn't help that the inclusion of the Inventor just casts a really weird and uninteresting pall over the arc. Read Full Review
