    Again, I can't help but express admiration for the masterful way 'Ms. Marvel' reads from issue to issue. It funny, emotional, and dramatic in all the right places, and it makes me hate that I have to wait a full month before I can see what happens next. It is the perfect comic. It really is.

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Dec 17, 2014

    MS. MARVEL is a title thats gotten a ton of attention over the last year, and its issues like this that illustrate why: its got its own unique voice, its talking about things that other comics (in general, not just superhero ones) arent talking about with a megaphone loud enough to reach a much, much larger audience than most books that WOULD talk about it do. Its got characters all its own and a visual style to match and I cant recommend highly enough that, regardless of your taste, you give it a look. Unless youre absolutely opposed to whimsy and brightness, youll have a good time. Read Full Review

    Comics Recap - Draven Katayama (loudlysilent) Dec 20, 2014

    Wilson has written a rallying cry against the dismissal of the younger generation. Kamala exhibits leadership on a whole new level here, and displays real bravery and heroism. This issue is more gripping, fun, and thought-provoking than recent issues. I'm really liking where Wilson is going. Read Full Review

    That's what I mean when I say that teenagers are kind of amazing. It's not that they have solutions to all of the world's problems, but they have the energy and vitality to confront those problems and do so with an unassailable spirit of hope. Watching Kamala Khan stand up to the Inventor and for her entire generation in Ms. Marvel #10, it's impossible to not feel optimistic about what the future holds. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Meg Dec 19, 2014

    Ms. Marvel #10 provides a poignant exposition on the issues facing millennials in today's society through Kamala's story. They mean well and have every intention of saving the world – but they just don't have the means or avenue like Kamala. Not everyone gets to be a superhero, but you should be what you want and do good that way. The issue is perfectly balanced between these concerns, Kamala's development as both a character and a hero, as well as the story of a girl and her dog. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - MagenCubed Dec 19, 2014

    Once again Wilson and Alphona bring their A-game. Wilsons scripting is strong and Alphonas pencils are as beautiful and energetic as ever, wonderfully complemented by Herrings palettes. Another compelling, visually engaging issue from this stellar creative team. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Dec 18, 2014

    Ms. Marvel #10 is a solid issue, building up for the big finale next time. There's not much to say that you don't already know: The story is good, the main character is wonderful and well-written, the writing is strong, and the artwork looks amazing. It's just another winning issue for this series and I'm eager to see where the end takes us and beyond in 2015. Read Full Review

    Hyper Geeky - ClumsyG Feb 5, 2015

    Ms. Marvel is one of my favorite series from 2014, and I hope they keep this team together for a long time. Ms. Marvel #10 doesn't neglect to speak to its audience, and it's great to see a positive message from a comic book that takes itself as seriously as it needs to. Fans looking for a classic-styled superhero comic with a great sense of humor and a dose of great power working hand in hand with great responsibility should look no further. Read Full Review

    IGN - Tres Dean Dec 17, 2014

    You've probably heard plenty of praise about this book over the course of the last year. It's all warranted. Ms. Marvel is a very special book and issue 10 is no exception. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Forrest C. Helvie Dec 18, 2014

    Combined with Alphona's unpretentious and yet still lighthearted action sequences (robots with bowlers, anyone?), Ms. Marvel #10 just keeps making it clear why it is one of 2014's breakout hits. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Dec 22, 2014

    "Ms. Marvel" #10 is yet another quality installment in the adventures of Kamala Khan. As the series progresses and she finds confidence in her powers and persona, Wilson reminds readers that this is still a sixteen-year-old with powers no other sixteen-year-old has. That means things are going to get weird and that weirdness is going to make a mark on her life, which Wilson, Alphona, Herring and Caramagna translate into a memorable, energetic adventure with heart. The conclusion to "Generation Why" comes up next issue, but there appears to be no end in sight for the fun tales "Ms. Marvel" is ready to share with readers. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Shawn Hoklas Jan 9, 2015

    When the ComicSpectrum review team picked their favorites of 2014, it was a tough choice not to pick Ms. Marvel as my personal “Favorite New Series” (I ended up picking Gotham Academy but 2 other reviewers picked Ms. Marvel), rest assured it ranked right up atr the top for me. There's a reason there's so much critical acclaim for Ms. Marvel and if you've been on the fence on giving this a try I'd encourage you to do so. Ms. Marvel is a lovable young character who can be a tremendous role model for not only young girls, but for everyone. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Dec 20, 2014

    Ms. Marvel hits the penultimate issue of its big Inventor storyline, and it remains a solid, enjoyable comic. I'm slightly dismayed that so much time has been spent with Kamala in costume in this story, but maybe Wilson and her team are just balancing out the character-heavy first story arc. Whatever the case may be, Ms. Marvel is still my comic book of the year! Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Dec 20, 2014

    Wilson makes a rare misstep, overplaying the gravity of issues that could have supported themselves, while the adjustments to Alphona's style fail to impress, however the essential skill of these two storytellers can't be hidden. While the implementation of the some of the loftier goals is unsteady, Ms. Marvel knows how to connect with the part of us that longs to be inspired and that visceral tether holds the ship on course.

    We The Nerdy - Randy Z. Ochoa Dec 19, 2014

    Alphonas art is great as usual, but at points it feels a bit inconsistent with what weve gotten in the previous issues. There are times when characters feel stiff even in something like an explosion where there should be lots of movement. This is definitely nothing to worry about though as the rest of the issue was top notch. There is one scene in particular where Kamala comically falls through a skylight and the expression on her face is absolutely priceless. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Dec 18, 2014

    After hearing so many good things about Ms. Marvel, I dug into the series at the beginning of the fall of this year and really came away enjoying the first four or five issues. But as the series went on, it's felt a bit listless, had to deal with a guest appearance, got tied into the Inhumans side of things lightly (which makes sense) and then dove into this Inventor storyline. That just has not clicked for me at all as it's gone on because it's taken us away from Kamala's home, family, friends, school and more. It feels too decompressed in a way for a book that needs to be like the 1960's Spider-man books in giving us a blend of her life as a superhero learning what to do while also handling her personal life. It's been all about the superhero side and so far it doesn't feel like we've gotten decent or interesting stories about it. The series feels like it's treading water and it really needs to bring this to a conclusion soon so it can find better footing. Read Full Review
