I haven't realized how good of a reading month I had until I just put everything together for this wrap-up. 8 books. 4 of them reread. Yes, a lot of comics. BUT I seriously loved every single page I read this month. Every book is a five-star read. HOT DAMN. I'm impressed with myself and my reading choices.

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

reread thoughts: LOCKJAW!!!!!

old review: I already loved the first one A LOT.
But this one felt even better for me.
I still just love and adore Kamala as a character. I just love her personality and everything about her. The moment she came face to face with Wolverine and started to fangirl. That was just such a normal things to do for someone who is so into superheroes and stuff. I just loved that a lot.
I also really enjoy the addition of Lockjaw. Cause she really needs a crime fighting buddy and I love that it turned out to be a huge dog with a weird antenna on his head LOL
The story was great. The art was wonderful.(I have the third volume here but I want to wait a bit to continue reading)

Review: The Bird King by G. Willow Wilson
The Bird King - G. Willow Wilson

The Bird King is an epic journey set during the reign of the last sultan in the Iberian peninsula at the height of the Spanish Inquisition.


Hassan has a secret--he can draw maps of places he's never seen and bend the shape of reality. When representatives of the newly formed Spanish monarchy arrive to negotiate the sultan's surrender, Fatima befriends one of the women, not realizing that she will see Hassan's gift as sorcery and a threat to Christian Spanish rule. With their freedoms at stake, what will Fatima risk to save Hassan and escape the palace walls?


As Fatima and Hassan traverse Spain with the help of a clever jinn to find safety, The Bird King asks us to consider what love is and the price of freedom at a time when the West and the Muslim world were not yet separate.


*I received a free copy from the publisher via Bookish First and chose to leave a voluntary review. Thank you!*

I read sample of this on Bookish first and I really enjoyed what I read. I read other books in that time era so I know there is some political things happening as well.

Knowing all that I dove into the story, that I started liking while reading the sample.

I really enjoyed the world, that Wilson created it was very colorful and pretty descriptive.  I loved the characters just as much if not even more so. It was so easy to get into the world and relate to the charterers in some way. I also enjoyed the story a lot and yet I wished I had more of it.

That being said I felt like that there was way too much background of the political war brewing and happening on the book. Yes, there was but in the end I wanted a fantasy and not a history book. This is what it felt at times. While some of it would have been okay and I read in other books about, I think it could have been balanced more.

Overall I enjoyed the world, story and people but some parts just seem to long and tiring with too much historical politics dumped in.


I rate it 3 ★

What's Normal, Anyway?
Ms. Marvel Volume 1: No Normal - G. Willow Wilson,Adrian Alphona

A required read for my Readings in the Graphic Novel class, but it was a fun one. I've never read any of the Captain Marvel books, so I came into this fresh. It's fun to discover this series without any preconceived notions. In the discussion, classmates brought up some issues that I didn't necessary see initially. 

I think that this one is geared towards a younger audience than the typical Marvel books, and the writing bears that in mind. The storytelling is a shade simplistic, and the illustrations jump rapidly between panels. The drawings are more sketchlike, lacking a clean rendering and finish. Some classmates thought the creators must have been under a tight deadline, and that's why the final version lacks polish. The conflict seems unfinished, and it was hard to follow exactly who the villain is and what their motives were. 

Overall, I liked this a lot. They're some hidden layers to this book that came out on a second read. While the portrayal of Kamala might have been in some way problematic, I still think it's powerful for young Muslim kids to read this book and see someone like them in their superhero books. In these charged times, it's also good for non-Muslim readers who don't know much about what it's like, so they can see that demonization of people who are different or share different beliefs and cultures is wrong. It was also good to Kamala's evolution from being ashamed of being herself, to the degree she wanted to escape her culture and heritage to fit in so badly. Instead, she learns that it's a part of her and it makes her stronger.
