    Even though the issue is setting up a bigger story, there's no lacking in depth and meaning. Kamala's growth as a person is every bit as important as her heroics. No issue makes that more clear than this one. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Oliver Vestal Apr 18, 2018

    MS MARVEL #29 showcases the narration as furthering the plot, and the dialogue as fleshing out characters. The illustration has very clean and intentional detail. The coloring grounds the reader through the down to earth feeling it creates. Overall it's a strong addition to the series. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Aaron Anderson Apr 23, 2018

    This is an excellent comic series that gives you the Peter Parker in school vibe of yesteryear but filtered through the eyes of a Pakistani American girl.  Nico Leon does Adrian Alphona levels of artwork in this book. Its fun teenage angst at its best. I loved this comic when I read it out of context having not read much of this series before. So much so that I went back and immediately started reading Ms. Marvel from the beginning. Then I enjoyed that so much I went and bought G. Willow Wilson's two published novels. The Butterfly Mosque and Alif the Unseen which I look forward to reading this summer on the beach. Read Full Review

    A good breather issue that still brings in big emotional content, mixed in with a nice amount of comic relief and setting up the next arc. Read Full Review

    The Imam scene is memorable, and according to editor Sana Amanat in the letters page, what she wished she heard as a teen. There were great moments throughout, with my main criticism that there was so much character development packed into the issue that there wasn't space for those moments to breathe. There was TOO MUCH good comic in here...what a strange complaint.

    This issue is more drama than action but I loved it. There are funny light moments. There are some heavy emotional moments. It was great to see Bruno back. Even the new girl seems interesting. The title may seem a little like it is built for teenage girls to enjoy, but I am loving it anyway. Something about the sitcom nature of the stories really works. Since it is narrated with Kamala's inner dialog I think you can pick up any issue without being too lost. It really is just a well made comic.

    Great issue. But i wish the Imam scene was longer because Kamala needs help steering the ship.
    Nico Leon turns in some nice work here too! Loved the birthing scene a lot!

    Ms. Marvel always delivers, but even with that standard this is an exceptional issue. The miracle of G. Willow Wilson's writing is that there is absolutely no distinction between the superhero and the person. Not only is Kamala so very much the same person whether in costume or not, in every way the pacing, strength, action, thoughtfulness, interest, tension, and every other emotional note weaves together a whole in which there is no disjoint. Unlike pretty much every other superhero comic, there' are no sharp boundaries of either "switch gears now, we're going to have some panels of personal life" or "switch gears now, we're going to have superhero action". This is the smoothest title I've ever known.

    Kamala's first kiss happens, with perfect dramatic timing, at a pinnacle of awkwardness. This is immensely strong in both script and art, but is it all-time-great? I think yes - just. The first act goes a little too deep into corny territory. It's no accident that my favorite moment of the book is Sheikh Abdullah's sarcastic over-reaction to Kamala's melodrama: "The end of the ENTIRE WORLD! We have to call your parents! The local newspapers! The HARAM POLICE!" The gentle mockery emphasizes the subjective nature of Kamala's crises at the perfect time, in the perfect way. The issue overall isn't quite perfect, but it is incredibly close. Not to be missed if you're at all invested in Kamala's story.
