    AiPT! - Alyssa Jackson Nov 30, 2016

    It's a shame that this issue got pushed back from its intended release date. I think if I had read this before Election Day, it would have made me feel excited to vote and about the possibilities of what could happen. Now it just makes me feel sad. But I believe in what Willow has to say and hopefully in a couple years when voting day arrives again, I can reread this to get inspired. Read Full Review

    MARVEL #13 is a depiction of what would have been achievable if the world was a place where fair is the bottom line. However, a very important lesson to take away is that we cannot be ignorant about politics. Ms. Marvel did her research and saved Jersey City, but in real life we can't rely on a superhero as we must do our own homework. And maybe, just maybe, we can create a revolution in the long run if we all fight together. Read Full Review

    If we talking educating folks on policies, practices, and how differences can be made. Then we gotta be talking about this issue of Ms. Marvel. I could easily see this book being taught in schools, used for lesson plans. Hell, if this was out when I was in high-school I'd be presenting for my book report in social studies. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Nov 30, 2016

    Ms. Marvel #13 is a light bit of progressive superhero fantasy in a world that desperately needs it. It's the 2016 equivalent of the famous 1940Captain America Comics #1 cover, which featured Cap punching out Hitler, but its post-Election Day release date makesthe comicbittersweet. Read Full Review

    Taking the divisiveness of the election and boiling it down to Jersey City politics, Kamala Khan's can-do spirit and grass roots activism might feel like a balm for some readers, although I for one wish we could have seen artist Mirka Andolfo's beautiful splash page of Kamala holding an American flag a month ago.

    Great writing and great artwork, made to inspire. But certainly a stark contrast to our reality. Read Full Review

    There's not much in the way of compelling superhero action, but Andolfo's crisp lines present Kamala at her most heroic. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Dec 5, 2016

    This issue of Ms. Marvel comes out a bit too late as itdelivers a ton of information in a comic PSA about the importance of voting inour elections. Unfortunately, due to the election being over a month ago, thiscomic feels a bit out of place. However, a decent story and some delightful artfrom our creative team really pulls this comic together. Hopefully this comicwill be reprinted and brought up again by Marvel when elections roll aroundagain because it is an important message. Read Full Review

    Nerdophiles - Jackson Adams Dec 5, 2016

    There's nothing fundamentally wrong about a comic that's arguing first and foremost that people vote and vote for a candidate they think will do the best job. It's a valid and inspirational message that, obviously, would have been better served releasing before a national election. However, in an issue that already only pays lip service or glosses over so many failings of the democratic system, like redistricting, voter suppression, voter apathy, and special interest groups, Ms. Marvel #13 fundamentally fails to make a case for voting or for itself. It's a book as wide-eyed and naive as its protagonist and the first genuine dud G. Willow Wilson has written on the character. Read Full Review
