    This fun little Ms. Marvel storyline comes to a fun little conclusion. The new artist seems like a godsend! Read Full Review

    This was a quick read with some hilarious dialogue and I thoroughly enjoyed this issue. There wasn't any forced romance with Red Dagger, just self re-evaluation for Kamala's character. As a filler arc, I didn't love it or hate it as a whole. In the way she stopped the train, she could have done it when it was only going at a snail's pace, but we wouldn't get to see her make a decision and be responsible for it and I liked that aspect of her character, so I'll overlook that. I'm looking forward to seeing our hero put away the costume and focus on being Kamala Khan for Legacy. Read Full Review

    Kamala is deep in her teenage angst in this issue, making for a downtempo tale over all. This is shaping up to be a slightly different kind of arc — the villain here isn't an exterior enemy, it is Kamala's own self-doubt. But really, isn't finding her best self usually the fight that Kamala to win in order to be Ms. Marvel the superhero? Once she's dug in on her interior issue, and bested her personal demon, the solution to the exterior issue always presents itself. Well this time around, what's that solution? How does she defeat this demon? Read Full Review

    Ms. Marvel #24 could have been a straightforward one-and-done adventure about Ms. Marvel saving the day, but the team's exploration of the parallels between Ms. Marvel's adventures and Kamala's personal struggles that gives the issue substance. Read Full Review

    The conclusion to the Red Dagger, Ms Marvel runaway train story ends in a good way. The first encounter of Kamala and Red Dagger starts with Kamala on a journey of self discovery. This encounter ends with Kamala on another journey of self discovery. The first involved Kamala trying to find out who she wanted to be. This encounter ends with her searching for who Ms Marvel is going to be. It felt a little more undeserved than what you usually get from Wilson. Ms Marvel has been such a rising hero in all other books so throwing that in here felt like something she had already moved past. This is still only a small part of the chapter. The majority of the book focuses on Ms Marvel showing her skills when it comes to avoiding damage, coming up w more

    Beautiful issue both in message and art! Love the dynamic between hero and side kick with Red Dagger. Those clean lines by Olertegui and fall backgrounds colored by Herring are just nice to look at.

    This pairing flat-out works, and I loved Kamala referring to herself as "adjective-less." Hooray for occasional villain-less action issues!

    The mechanics of stopping the runaway train remain a bit blah, but the character examinations they set the stage for are exquisite. Kamala learns tons about herself here, and the Jersey love warms the hearts of ex-Garden-Staters like me. Diego Olortegui's art is pretty magnificent, particularly his faces; he also invests a lot of creative energy in making a silk purse out of the sow's ear of the train situation. It's still fairly dumb if you overthink it, but it *looks* fantastic.

    Ms. Marvel #24 mostly works. There are a few hang-ups I have. It seems like they're pushing Red Dagger as a love interest, which is done in a tired and cliché way. And this issue once again delves into Ms. Marvel's insecurities, which has been the focus point since Civil War 2, pretty much, so I felt like it was a bit of a retread in that aspect, however it looks like it finally came to a head at the end of this issue, so I'm glad about that.
