    As is typical for the series, MS. MARVEL #8 gets a high recommendation from me. While the issue definitely should be read by those who are enjoying CIVIL WAR II, I think even those who aren't particularly fond of the event will like the way Wilson tackles the central moral dilemma.

    This is a pivotal issue that dives right into the Civil War storyline perfectly with a fresh face we know as Kamala Khan, Ms. Marvel. Read Full Review

    Ms. Marvel offers a unique take on the conflict at the crux of Marvel's latest event as G. Willow Wilson keeps delivering one of the best books in the big 2. I definitely recommend picking this up regardless of your feelings about Civil War II. Read Full Review

    I wasn't completely sold on "Carol's Cadets." There really didn't seem to be a purpose and they weren't super-powered at all. They felt like more of a liability than a help. Still, the story was filled with lots of heart " with Kamala's conversation with Tyesha being the highlight. I have no doubt Kamala will come out on the right side of this, but (as always) it's a lot of fun watching her education. Read Full Review

    Both with superheroes and with life, you learn to take the good with the bad, but thankfully Ms. Marvel has a lot more of the former than the latter. Read Full Review

    It looks like Wilson is going to do a pretty good job of settling this Civil War story down to its basics and putting Kamala through the emotional and moral wringer. She's got a great supporting cast that she knows how to use for full effect. I'm going to ignore as many Civil War tie-ins as I can, but I'll be more than happy to see Kamala Khan through this event.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jul 4, 2016

    This issue suffers from having to set up a side story in an ultimately much larger event. However, what few problem exist are easily overshadowed by amazing art and wonderful storytelling. The issue is setting up a lot but the ending has me excited to read the next issue. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Jack Fisher Jun 24, 2016

    That impact and the undertones surrounding it remain the greatest strength of Ms. Marvel #8. It takes the larger conflict created in Civil War II and personalizes it. Like a bad movie teaser, it does somewhat spoil the outcome. Ms. Marvel is setting herself up for disappointment and heartbreak. All that idolizing and admiration for Captain Marvel is going to take a crippling gut punch. That punch is going to hurt, but it's worth enduring for certain characters. Kamala Khan is one of them.

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Jun 27, 2016

    Though the other Carol Cadets members are unfortunately pretty flat so far, the last page cliffhanger makes the title feel more personal again. It's smart of Miyazawa to heighten the background detail that reinforces the humanity of the newest "future-criminal" and his connection to Kamala. While the next issue will probably push the moral debate a little further, the story arc feels weaker than most of the non-event-related issues that preceded it. In "Ms. Marvel" #8, "Civil War II" takes panel time away from the personal relationships and humor that make "Ms. Marvel" distinctive. Read Full Review
