Ms. Marvel, Vol. 1: No Normal (Ms. Marvel (Collected Editions) #1) Reviews
Okay, since there are a million reviews with pretty pictures from this GN (graphic novel) I'm going to keep it short as I usually do with my graphic novel reviews.
I didn't think I would like this book for reasons but then I did. One never knows!
Kamala is just a normal teenage girl with really strict parents and she's just trying to get through her life.
I think she's cute with her writing Marvel fanfic. I think I might want to look into this fanfic stuff!
I'm a little confused about how she tu ...more
For a first volume, this is pretty well put together. If you're a fan of Agents of SHIELD, you will enjoy some of the connections made in this series. If not, there might be a bit of confusion about how exactly Kamala gains her powers and what exactly is going on. However, I found the storyline to be easy to follow and pretty straight forward, which is refreshing. Sometimes I feel like comic books can be needlessly confusing in order to feign complexity, but this one sticks to one girl's story a ...more
This was a fun start to the reboot and I'm looking forward to upcoming volumes.
WHAT I LOVED:
- Pakistani American Muslim heroine! Can we get a hell yes for diversity?
- plethora of side characters that I'm looking forward to getting developed more in the future (Bruno is adorable, btw)
- Loved the art and the colors used
- Coming of age and superhero story combined
WHAT I DISLIKED:
- I found her powers and how she got them kind of confusing. I hope that is explained in the future
- as other hav ...more
This series is so popular that the poster for the first volume was featured on Alex’s wall in her room at college in one of the episodes of the sitcom Modern Family. That is amazing.
Kamala is a Muslim-American teen whose parents are strict. For instance, they forbid her from going to a party with boys and alcohol, even if everybody else is going and it’s a safe enough environment.
But Kamala wants a normal life, and is tired of her parents’ expectations, so she goes against her parents’ wishes. ...more
So Kamala is a nerdy Jersey Girl who gets hit with Terrigan Mist, and suddenly finds herself able to shape-shift.
Because she's always felt like the odd one out, she uses this ability to morph herself into the image her hero, Carol Danvers. With a few, um...costume modifications.
What? She wanted to go with the Old School look, ok?
Don't worry, she'll figure out why Captain Marvel switched to a more practical costume soon enough.
Do we need another teen superhero?
So, basically, this stor ...more

For all of you out there screaming, WE NEED DIVERSE BOOKS! I got your diverse graphic novel right here.
Meet Kamala Khan:
But I'm getting ahead of myself.
When Ms. Marvel begins, Kamala is the teenage Muslim version of Toula in MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING. She's lamenting the uncoolness of her heritage and daydreaming about being a blonde, kick-ass boot wearing superhero.
It's the weekend and (once again) she's forbidden from g ...more
Well that was so so fun! I really enjoyed it a lot. I'm not used to reading comics/graphic novels so when it ends I'm always surprised - but I really enjoyed it!
I loved all the modern day phrases and references, and Kamala is a great character.
There was a bunch of stereotyping in the book (of Muslims, mostly) but I feel like most comics end up stereotyping groups in every story. Though that is sad, it's still great to have so much diversity.
Overall a really great, fun, enjoyable read. Already ...more
Ms. Marvel was an interesting surprise even when I really did not have any particular preconceptions of it. Not negative, not positive.
I do not think it offers anything new when comes to superhero world, unless you look at it with the eyes of diversity as our new Ms. Marvel is Pakistani and a Muslim, but it gives an interesting look at a different cultural background middle of Western world, which seems to be the main focus instead of initial superhero plot.
That actually works good as it does sh ...more
