Review: Ms. Marvel Vol 6
Ms. Marvel, Vol. 6: Civil War II - G. Willow Wilson,Takeshi Miyazawa,Adrian Alphona

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say Kelly Sue Deconnick isn't writing Captain Marvel any more? Her appearance in this installment of Ms. Marvel is a complete stranger to me. Maybe I'd have enjoyed it more if I didn't find the difference so jarring.

 

There's some great stuff that happens around the Minority Report riff that makes up most of this volume. (Also, delighted that a character references that movie at one point, because, yeah.) There is also some stuff I'm struggling with. In Vol. 5, Kamala's the cause of her own problems because she's trying to do too many things, and be too many people. In this volume, she lets her hero worship for her namesake override everything else. It's a far less interesting, less appealing arc saved only by not pressing a specific reset button at the end. 

 

I loved the last issue in this. I hope she keeps up with her new friend. And I hope there's minimal contact with Captain Marvel from here on out.

Ms. Marvel, Vol. 5: Super Famous - Nico Leon,G. Willow Wilson,Cliff Chiang,Takeshi Miyazawa,Adrian Alphona

Probably my favorite Ms. Marvel installment so far.

 

Kamala is just such a great character. Watching her screw things up is hard, and wow does she screw some things up in these issues. Not by not trying hard enough, but by taking on too much and not wanting to ask for help. Her desire to prove herself while burning the candle at both ends is just so familiar. There is no work, school, life balance when you give 110% to each of them.

 

Great series!

I'm torn on how I feel about this volume. I still love the story and the characters, but I feel like parts of this one were really tied into another series (one I don't read) and it felt confusing at times. I mean,

Rhodey's dead, Captain Marvel's really upset about it but Tony Stark seems unaffected?

(spoiler show)

What's all that about? I have no idea.

 

Kamala's origin arc seems to be over, and I'm excited to see where the series goes from here. I just hope the next volume is lighter on the crossovers.

"Everybody has a girlfriend except me!" = wlw Kamala? Please, please, please make it so!

 

This volume was a lot of fun with a good balance of super hero-ing and normal life-ing. The whole series so far feels really cohesive. I can't believe I'm almost to the end of the available volumes. Luckily another comes out in August so I won't have to wait too long.

Ms Marvel, Volume 2
Ms. Marvel, Vol. 2: Generation Why - Jacob Wyatt,G. Willow Wilson,Adrian Alphona

I like this series so far. I read Volume 1 a few years ago and then just never got around to reading any more. I find the style hard to look at sometimes. It feels very busy. I am enjoying all the references to other Marvel works and cameos (even if I don't understand all of them).
