    There have been plenty of preview articles that have hinted at Kamala's power-sets, but not at the trials she might have to endure to gain them or control them. The final flare at the end is fun and interesting to see how Wilson & Co. circle back around to bring us the hero we're all longing to get to know. Read Full Review

    Needless to say, I am going to stay with this series as long as Reed and De La Torre are a part of it. The dialogue is great and quirky, particularly the cell phone conversation between Ms. Marvel and a battling Captain America. I guarantee youll at least giggle during those two pages! Plus, the interspersing of story elements during a lunch between Carol and Jessica Drew is deftly handled, especially when Carol misquotes a defeated Stilt-Man. This is great stuff and makes for an entertaining time. Great art, engaging characters, and a high level of fun and action. This issue has it all! Read Full Review

    The artwork offers a pretty decent showing by Roberto De La Torre and Palmiotti. I noticed a few technical gaffes in scale as well as foreshortening, and I have to question the panel with Ms. Marvel smiling, since it appears the Joker visited a rictus grin upon her, but all in all, the artists keep everything nicely action-packed while expertly achieving subtle expressions and body language during the aforementioned lunch date.

    I can't recommend this issue, but I'm hopeful that future issues will get stronger as the writer finds his focus. All of the problems that I've outlined are easy to fix. Brian Reed is still new to the genre and hasn't yet settled into bad form or developed a prima donna attitude towards criticism. That's why I've spent over 2000 words criticizing this issue. Many reviewers can whine and screech over creative choices with which they disagree. It is my hope that this critique is constructive both to the creative staff of this title and to other creative types who may be facing similar problems in their own work. Constructive criticism raises the dialogue of the art form. We shouldn't settle for pedestrian writing. This title can be better. It can be the best of the best! Read Full Review
