    While this book does conclude the story it started in issue 1, even coming in now is not a problem, the book is always inviting. More importantly: among the other Marvel books, this is the only book remaining at 2.99, and its a real bang for your buck at that price. For me, this book has been an important part of the overall change in Marvels approach at gaining new readers, and if further books follow the example that Wilson and Alphona have set, the future looks bright for Marvel.

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Feb 4, 2015

    This is one of the few titles on the shelf, either Big 2 or otherwise, that can get away with not really having a longterm storyline. Shes still a new enough character that readers are still getting to know her, so a status quo needs to be established before it can be shaken up, so the somewhat wandering, ponderous plotline is actually a strength as we get to know this cast. With how hard it can be for new series to succeed, its great to see one not only surviving, but thriving and contributing to the greater universe just by introducing it to SO many new, different characters. With the Inventor, Kamala may have found her first real archenemy, and thats an important step for any hero to take. Read Full Review

    Kamala is such an excellent role model for teenagers and adults alike. Not only is the storyline consistently funny and action-packed from issue to issue, it engages the reader to think of their own lives and how it relates to her" which sort of makes you feel like a superhero in the long run.

    Shadowhawk's Shade - AJ Feb 10, 2015

    Adrian Alphona is the artist here with Ian Herring on colours and VC's Joe Caramagna on letters with Kris Anka on the art. As usual, I loved the artwork. The body language is just too good, and the coolest thing is the design of The Inventor, being both quirky and nice at the same time. His head can sometimes make it difficult to get a read on him in the context of the story, but then that's where Adrian and Ian's art really shines, to use one example. The action scenes too are fairly good, and when you put it all together, you get something genuinely impressive. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jordan Richards Feb 5, 2015

    Ms. Marvel #11 was a fitting and highly enjoyable conclusion to the first year of the comic. It brought its big building storyline to a great conclusion, with very strong character, writing, and wonderful looking artwork. I declared this the best comic Marvel had to offer last year and with quality like this, I see a great future in store for us and our new heroine. Definitely recommended. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Jessica Boyd Feb 6, 2015

    There is a definitive “end of the beginning” feeling provided by this issue. While much of the goofball humor Kamala had with her friends in earlier issues is missing, there is still plenty of joy. It's the kind of conclusion that will give you hope for the future. There is a familiar invocation that each generation thinks the one coming after is degrading, and how those coming up are going to prove the world wrong. This book is designed to show all of us that there is hope not just for the future, but for ourselves. Plus, leave it to a Ms. Marvel book to make you physically hungry. It left me chanting #gyrosforheroes. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Jack Whelan Feb 6, 2015

    It never feels overwrought. One of Kamalas greatest strengths as a character is that she can be idealistic without being overly nave, heroic without losing her smarts, intelligent without being a know it all. Shes flawed, but her finding strength and learning through her flaws is what makes her so compelling. Towards the end of the issue, she learns not all battles can be faced down by yourself, and that it is sometimes very necessary, and seeing her arrive at this realization is deeply satisfying, not because we want her to admit a mistake, but purely that shes learned from them and grew as a character. Real-time and well-paced character development can sometimes be something writers miss, but Wilson handles her creations path with aplomb. Adrian Alphonas art continues to delight, even if the colors are somewhat more muted this time around. His creative use of Kamalas stretch powers always manage to stay on the right side of cartoonish. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Connor Frigon Feb 9, 2015

    Adrian Alphonas art is joyous and, thanks in part to colourist Ian Herring, vibrant. His style relies heavily on exaggerated cartooning to give Ms. Marvel #11 that distinct feeling only this title provides.He confines the actionto one room with little maneuverability, its difficult to make sense of where everything positioned in space. Still, Ms. Marvel is a beautiful book and makes a very pleasing reading experience. Read Full Review

    Hyper Geeky - ClumsyG Feb 5, 2015

    Even with the Inventor gone, we know there's an even greater threat, for who invents the Inventor? I don't know whether Secret Wars will be a huge wall or a bridge for Ms. Marvel's future a few months from now. It would be a tragedy to lose something so reminiscent of those golden age comics " a book that inspires and exhorts its readers to reach higher, think of others, and fight for justice.

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Feb 5, 2015

    "Ms. Marvel" #11 feels like a place where the series could have ended if the book had been cancelled. The fact that the book is thriving makes this issue that much more joyous, because we've got more "Ms. Marvel" to come in the months and years ahead. To steal a phrase from comics' history: Make mine "Ms. Marvel." Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Feb 9, 2015

    The past year has seen the precipitous rise of Kamala Khan. This month Ms. Marvel turns one and, to celebrate, we're treated to the final chapter of the title's first over-arc. G. Willow Wilson has done an impressive job of building up the Inventor as a credible and interesting threat and the stakes are appropriately high. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Feb 5, 2015

    While I enjoyed Ms. Marvel in its early issues, the series felt like it faltered as it moved into the next batch, first with its Wolverine appearance and then as much time as it's spent with the Inventor arc. Thankfully, that has come to a close and I'm going into the next few issues with a sense of hope that it can find some better and more engaging stories to tell as I continue to like the character of Kamala, but it really feels like we need to do something more with her. This installment serves as a proper bit of closure for the arc and the opening chapter in Kamala's life, but we got the obligatory nod towards something larger that can come back to bit her later on, which is expected. After all, who invents the Inventor? Read Full Review
