    this was fantastic! i was a bit confused about how she got her powers, but maybe i just need to re-read it and it'll help me understand. other than that this was so great!

    Really enjoyed this! I especially loved how relatable Kamala was, and that she wasn't the typical comic book heroine. That being said, I did feel like some elements were a bit stereotypical, and while this was a good intro to the characters/world/situation, it wasn't as standout WOW AMAZING as it could've been. I'll definitely be continuing on with this comic series, though. Very much looking forward to volume 2!

    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 turned into Ms. Marvel but I guess I will figure it out in later books or some friends will tell me.

    Just a couple more pics and I'm done. I love that she can morph or stretch, whatever, into a huge long legged woman, she can get these gynormous hands that pick people up. Cool stuff like that, oh and she can shrink to ant man size. She calls all of this embiggen <---has to do with something her mom said when she was little, if I recall correctly.

    I liked Kamala and Ms. Marvel! I will be reading more of her adventures.

    I'd been hearing good things about this book for ages, so I finally decided to pick it up.

    I enjoyed it, and appreciated the fact that it wasn't just another same-old superhero origin story. But if I'm going to be completely honest here. (And I always try to be completely honest) I'll also say that it didn't really thrill me, either.

    Part of the issue might be that I don't know *anything* about the original hero that the story is based on. That can make it a lot harder to get into a story.

    But it's also fair to assume that this story didn't speak to me as strongly because the main character is a teenage Muslim, and a child of immigrants. I don't *think* that's the case. I dig a lot of books with female protagonists. But I'll happily admit that it's a possibility.

    I'd happily read more of the series. But I'm not going to run out and order them. And even if this isn't my favorite comic ever, I'm really glad it exists. I have a bunch of comics I love. I'm a straight white guy. There's a ton of media tailor made to please me.

    The fact that this comic speaks to a lot of other people's interests and experiences instead of mine? That doesn't hurt me at all. In fact, it delights me. I love it. Huzzah for that. Let's do it ten times. Let's do it forever.

    [3.5 Stars] I'm conflicted about this graphic novel, and I think the reason for that is because I'm reading this from the perspective of a twenty-something Muslim Pakistani American. Don't get me wrong, I like how diverse this graphic novel is and having a Muslim super hero is super kickass, but there were certain things in the graphic novel that just made me feel a little strange. For example, I felt that many of the Muslim characters in this graphic novel were based off of stereotypes (control

    [3.5 Stars] I'm conflicted about this graphic novel, and I think the reason for that is because I'm reading this from the perspective of a twenty-something Muslim Pakistani American. Don't get me wrong, I like how diverse this graphic novel is and having a Muslim super hero is super kickass, but there were certain things in the graphic novel that just made me feel a little strange. For example, I felt that many of the Muslim characters in this graphic novel were based off of stereotypes (controlling parents, the laughable devout Muslim, and the uncaring Muslim followers at the mosque), and at times it seemed the graphic novel was pointing out that her religion was the obstacle standing in her way. This naturally makes me feel uncomfortable. I don't think this was the intent of the graphic novel, and other people don't seem to be picking up on that so I'm probably just looking at this graphic novel too closely. I just think that being in the unique position I am in I am a little bit more critical about Muslim representation in the media.

    The last thing I want to say is that I didn't think this graphic novel was as fun or exciting as others I have read. I think this is because I'm not really a fan of superhero graphic novels in general. They just are not for me. I also thought that the magical powers were a little bland, and the way she became a superhero was a little unexplained. I also don't quite understand the villain. That being said, I do like that this graphic novel sent the message that you don't need to be someone else, that being yourself is even more awesome.

    Regardless, this one left me feeling conflicted.
