    G. Willow Wilson and Takeshi Miyazawa deliver another great chapter in the tale of Kamala Khan with Ms. Marvel #14. This is a fun tale with great characters and I'm quite excited to see where we'll be taken next. The life of this young Inhuman is as intriguing as ever. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Apr 18, 2015

    This issue, and the one before it,have been pretty darn close to perfect. They've been a wonderful glimpse into what makes this series so enjoyable, and how Wilson and her artists are crafting the best comic on the shelves. Ms. Marvel doesn't need the Avengers. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Jack Fisher Apr 22, 2015

    It really shouldn't be surprising, a handsome new guy turning out to be another caricature from a Revenge of the Nerds movie. But it still has an emotional impact because Kamala Khan is just so easy to root for. Seeing this promising love interest blow up in her face has more of an impact than watching her fight killer robots or giant crocodiles. The impact of Ms. Marvel #14 is a testament to just how much we've come to care about Kamala Khan. Like so many other teenage girls, she learned the hard way that cute boys will take advantage of them if they let their hormones overshadow their judgment. It's a lesson she'll probably learn more than once, but one that'll make her stronger and more lovable in the long run. Read Full Review

    Wilson's talents with dialogue and humor continue to make "Ms. Marvel" a star, but Miyazawa and the rest of the team provide the extra wattage to make her shine even more brightly. Read Full Review

    If love were easy, everybody would be doing it. And yet, everybody does. Much of Ms. Marvel has been the story of one girl's coming of age as a new breed of superhero - but now G. Willow Wilson is expanding her purview, and turning this comic into the story of a girl who simply is growing up as a person. It's a very human approach to a story filled with inhumans, and it's that kind of relatability that has made Ms. Marvel such a great gateway comic. While this isn't a traditional kicksplodey kind of action comic, it's exactly the kind of issue this series needed. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Apr 16, 2015

    The latest issue of the series certainly works this arc well with what it wants to accomplish, tying into events in New Attilan while also working Kamala's own growth as an Inhuman and as a teenage girl. There's a lot of really sweet moments that remind us old folks of the thrill of youth, first crushes and loves and those feelings of excitement. But we also see some of the realities in the predators that exist out there, especially as Kamran's great faced begins to reveal what's truly underneath. It's a crushing moment to be sure to see Kamala go through it, especially since she could be in real danger. Playing that alongside what Bruno is going through only adds to the weight of it all. It's a strong issue that does a lot of very good character stuff that gets things through to readers about a lot of the cultural reasoning that doesn't fit into the typical "movie caricature" reasoning we usually get.

    The Latest Pull - Derek L. Chase Apr 15, 2015

    The climax of the issue comes when Kamran reveals who he truly is by taking Kamala hostage and introducing her to the Inhumans that are leading a revolt against Queen Medusa, a predictable scene only because of how often love interests turn bad in superhero comics, but still an amazing development for future issues to play with. Big things are coming for Kamala and as long as the quality remains as high as it's been since the inception of this series, readers will definitely be pleased. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Jordan Richards Apr 16, 2015

    Ms. Marvel #14 is another fine issue of the series. While admittedly predictable, the writing, characters, and artwork really make everything shine and capable of overcoming its problems. It's probably not the best issue of the run we've had so far, but you'll certainly come away enjoying this outing. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Apr 15, 2015

    My only concern is the way this issue begins to tie in more heavily with the larger Inhumans franchise. The story takes a fairly abrupt tonal shift in the final pages, and one of the characters makes an equally abrupt shift in personality. Hopefully the final chapter of this arc will justify the about face and avoid spending two much time wading outside of Kamala's own little sphere. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Apr 15, 2015

    This is still a series to watch, but also should maybe be a warning to others trying to copy its success not to venture down a road which seems too familiar. There is very little which is familiar about this series on its surface, but as soon as this plot starts to roll out it seems very similar to a lot of stories that have come before, and even without an update to make it seem more modern. This particular issue is thus a bit of a letdown after the previous issue, using its formula of the new and modern and mixing it up with a retread. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Apr 15, 2015

    The arts not bad by any stretch, it's actually quite good, and it fits the issue more often than not, but there are a few times when the more manga-ish influences feel like theyre overpowering the tone and tenor of whats been previously established. Wilsons writing still comes alive across every page and panel, leading her characters through the height of teen joy and the depths of teen angst while presenting them as real and sympathetic (with some obvious, appropriate exceptions) and that, it turns out, is more than enough.

    Comics Bulletin - Alexander Lu Apr 21, 2015

    Takeshi Miyazawa's art this issue is particularly fantastic. His facial expressions are exaggerated in a manner reminiscent of the manga tradition, and it really helps the inflated feelings of infatuation Kamala experiences this issue shine through. Read Full Review

    Ms. Marvel #14 is another solid installment in an excellent series, and I look forward to seeing just how Kamala reacts to this new perspective Marvel's everexpanding Inhuman family and the Terrigen Mist incident. The final pages take a jarring turn — perhaps to begin shifting the tone of the book in a less upbeat direction. Leading Readers into "Last Days" — and the short time left til Secret Wars kicks off makes me wonder how exactly Kamron's storyline will play out against the backdrop of this universe changing event.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Apr 18, 2015

    This issue takes a decidedly predictable turn and skirts ever closer to the Inhumans franchise, but G. Willow Wilson does an impressive job of powering through on sheer strength of writing. Ms. Marvel #14 isn't as strong a comic as its predecessor and the familiar story hurts, but Wilson does some truly amazing character work here. Backed up by Takeshi Miyazawa's fantastic 'acting' and pitch-perfect style, Wilson makes you feel for these characters and reminds why this is one of the defining comics of the current landscape.
