    Another satisfying arc. Looking forward to more Kamala and Mike interactions, and I would not mind seeing Nakia clash with Ms. Marvel. Kamala learned a lot when she was forced to see her alter ego through her best friend. Read Full Review

    The tale itself is left on an intriguing note and the arc has packed a lot in so far in the three issues served up. Anyone that was fearing the departure of Wilson from writing duties on this book need fret not, for my money Ahmed is proving himself a born successor, and he has the team around him to keep me around for a lot longer.

    With Mike's help, Ms. Marvel settles the matter at hand but that doesn't let her off the hook with her fans, who expected who knows what from their idealized Internet folk hero. So while this intro hook is wrapped up, the outlines and themes of this series are becoming clear: what does a hero owe to her fans? Her community? How does she maintain her balance between her public and private lives? What do you do with the new girlfriend of your old crush? What is kombucha anyway? Whatever the answers, Ms. Marvel and her friends (and Wilson and the art team) will keep bringing their best. Read Full Review

    While it's been wonderful watching Kamala Khan grow into her own as a teenager and as a superhero, her post-Secret Wars relaunch feels like a step backward rather than a step forward. The challenge with superhero stories - especially stories as new as Kamala's - is that there needs to be some degree of escalation to maintain momentum. This arc, unfortunately, feels a little anemic now that it's gone back to its street-level roots. While this book continues to be a decent read, that feels like too low of a bar for a title - and a creative team - this good. Here's hoping that Wilson and company can reignite the fun and excitement and innovation that made Ms. Marvel such a welcome title in the first place. Read Full Review
