    But Why Tho? - Swara Ahmed Sep 8, 2020

    In all, The Magnificent Ms. Marvel #14: OUTLAWED is an incredible read. Despite the premise, there is a lot of action here to take in as we go on this dream journey with our hero. With overall excellent and emotive writing from Ahmed, incredible pictures by the art team, and an interestingly unique premise, it is the start to perhaps Kamala's most daunting challenge yet.

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Sep 9, 2020

    In the big-picture view, Magnificent Ms. Marvel #14 is a pretty small step. It's just the necessary story of Kamala fighting her way out of the coma that triggered the Outlawed event. But thanks to good art and tremendously insightful writing, this character study is the furthest thing in the world from disappointing. Read Full Review

    The Outlawed story continues here, and Saladin Ahmed does a good job of moving the story forward while giving fans of Ms. Marvel an issue that still centers on what makes the character great. I still am not a fan of Outlawed, but I am glad to have one of my favorite heroes back. Read Full Review

    Geek'd Out - Nico Sprezzatura Sep 9, 2020

    Because so much of this issue's story is internal and limited, the onus is on artist Minkyu Jung to depict Saladin Ahmed's script in a visually interesting way, which he handily succeeds at doing. Magnificent Ms. Marvel #14 gives him an opportunity to draw a bit more surreally than Kamala's monthly adventures tend to do, which is a welcome deviation from the norm, but it's the aforementioned character moments that really sell the gravity of the situation.

    Comic Crusaders - M.R. Jafri Sep 9, 2020

    Saladin Ahmed is a much more gifted writer than anything he is giving us on his Ms Marvel run. The writer and character simply are not a good fit. Kamala is an incredibly original superhero in the Marvel universe, bringing a unique perspective, family, friendships and incredible positivity. Unfortunately all of this feels increasingly forgotten in a comic drowning in anxieties rather than rising above them as the story claims to do. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Jonathan Cadotte Sep 12, 2020

    The Magnificent Ms. Marvel #14 does nothing new or special with the "trapped in a coma" plot, instead relying on clichs and overly dramatic moments which don't land particularly well. Read Full Review
