Book Review: Ms. Marvel Volume 3: Crushed by G. Willow Wilson

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Book 3 in the Ms. Marvel Collected Editions

Summary

Ms. Marvel crashes a Valentine’s dance as she faces a new villain – Loki. On top of that, she’s facing a little romance of her own!

What I Liked

  • They called Loki a “hipster viking”. Lol.
  • Finally! A love interest! I was very excited when he entered the scene.
  • The book was quite unpredictable, in a good way. I never quite new what was coming!

What I Didn’t Like

  • There were more returning characters (from other comics) in this edition, which is great for comic fans, but a little more confusing for those of us trying to be a comic fan.

In Conclusion

Yet another great edition to the Ms. Marvel series.

Book Review: Ms. Marvel Volume 2: Generation Why by G. Willow Wilson

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Book 2 in the Ms. Marvel Collected Editions

Summary

Kamala is finally getting a hang of her powers as Ms. Marvel, just in time to face a new enemy. 

What I Liked

  • You get to see more of her culture. I mentioned this in my review of the first book, but I really like it for two reasons: 
    1. It’s different than my culture 
    2. It’s refreshingly not the same as pretty much everything else I’ve read. (Which is sort of sad really….) 

What I Didn’t Like

  • The message of the story was very in-your-face this time. If you have to explicitly state the moral of the story, then you didn’t do a good enough job showing it as an author. It should be obvious without being said. (To be honest, it would  have been obvious without being said, but it was said anyways. Blech.) 

In Conclusion

Another great edition to the Ms. Marvel series.

Book Review: Ms. Marvel Volume 1: No Normal by G. Willow Wilson

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Book 1 in the Ms. Marvel Collected Editions 

Summary

Ms. Marvel is a normal Muslim teenager in Jersey City – until something happens. Now she has to figure out what is going on, and without tipping off her very protective parents. 

What I Liked

  • This is a great starter comic series if you have no prior knowledge of the comic universes. I tried reading other comics that were hard to get into because I had no idea what was going on. And while different characters do pop up throughout the series, you don’t have to have any prior knowledge to follow and understand the story line. 
  • I loved how being Muslim was just a part of the main character’s life. It wasn’t a central focus and it wasn’t in-your-face, but it was there as an influence in her life. It was neat to see the religion from the every day point of view instead of the large scale religions 101 definition. 
  • I really like the character. She’s emotionally strong and isn’t afraid of being herself, but not in an unrealistic way. 
  • I like the side characters in this series as well. They seem supportive of her and her ambitions, even if they accidentally find out she has super powers. 

What I Didn’t Like 

  • Not much 

In Conclusion

If you’re looking for a way to delve into the comic book world, or if you’re just looking for a comic about a kick-butt teenager, this is the book for you.
