    Comics: The Gathering - F.D. White Feb 19, 2015

    After a full year, Ms. Marvel is still running smoothly with excellent issue after excellent issue. As long as Wilson is on board writing I don't expect that to change any time soon. Read Full Review

    Kamala's team-up books are always a treat, but it's ultimately because Wilson has made her such an endearing character to follow. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Jordan Richards Feb 18, 2015

    Ms. Marvel #12 was a small break in the action, giving us a quick, but highly enjoyable one-shot with Loki and Valentine's Day thrown into the mix. The characters were great, the story was a lot of fun, the humor was amusing, and the artwork looked well-done in the end. While not as intense as the previous issues, there's plenty to like and I look forward to whatever the next big story is for the series. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Feb 19, 2015

    This series has begun to emphasize superhero team-ups a bit more than I'd like, but at least G. Willow Wilson is able to handle the various guest stars with both class and humor. Read Full Review

    The Latest Pull - Barry Donnelly Feb 19, 2015

    All said, Ms. Marvel #12 is a great one-shot Valentines story that perfectly fits the lighthearted tone of the book and the personality of the characters. G. Willow Wilson once again proves her ability to send us on a fun romp through adolescence, acne, and all. Read Full Review

    Ms. Marvel #12 is a pleasant issue, but perfectly skipable. If youre looking to jump into the story, maybe wait until the next issue. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Feb 26, 2015

    It's Valentine's Day for Midgard, Jersey City, and Ms. Marvel and all three are getting a visit from a certain Agent of Asgard. As the first Ms. Marvel adventure to follow its lengthy first arc, "Loki in Love" has a little bit to prove. G. Willow Wilson does a nice job of quickly and efficiently justifying Loki's presence in the book and manages to add some gravitas to the plot we've been enjoying at the same time. Read Full Review

    Ms. Marvel #12 acts as a break between its first arc and upcoming story and would work as a good starting issue for new readers. Read Full Review

    Hyper Geeky - ClumsyG Mar 1, 2015

    As a one-off, Ms. Marvel #12 isn't totally dismissable. The first half seems rough compared to Wilson's previous issues, but the second half delivers bygiving Ms. Marvel a few teachable moments thanks to the trickster Loki. It seems ironic at first, but Loki's the nerd to Thor's jock persona, which makes the Ms. Marvel's first battle with Loki one for the books. With that, I'm looking forward to a new story arc, and whether it's Alphona or Bondoc at the helm of the visuals, I think fans should expect great things. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Mar 3, 2015

    Though we do get a few moments with Kamala and her friends and a little time with Nakia as well, there's a kind of light touch to so much of this that it feels like it wants to be an after school special but doesn't quite know what it is it wants to say. It's doing the whole Valentine's Day thing, but there's not that much to really latch onto here because the real characters that could connect with it don't spend much time together at all, removing the potential for the true fun to be had there. Instead, it turns more into a Loki and Ms. Marvel moment, which could have some good material to it, but it's the Loki doing the good thing as an Agent of Asgard, which doesn't really excite me much. Or at least, this interpretation of it doesn't excite me that much and is likely to keep me away from the actual book because of how it's presented. The book is still on a lifeline with me, but I'm waiting until we get to the next real storyline before I make any judgments. Read Full Review
