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
Love the art, love how this follows an islamic girl/family, but I read this thinking that I would be okay since I've never read/seen any other Marvel material, but it references the Avengers and I just feel so lost and left behind... This story was interesting but not a lot happens, so hopefully the series will pick up!
I’m a little ashamed to admit, for somebody who claims to be a bookworm and proud nerd, this is the first comic I have ever read. I’ve been meaning to read a marvel comic for years but I’ve never gotten around to picking one up. I love the format of words and letting my mind create it’s own images, so I wasn’t sure if I would fall easily into a comic.
But was I wrong. The art style in this comic was beautiful, with vivid colours that perfectly fit the narrative.
This story follows Kama ...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
charming. G Willow Wilson and editor Sana Amanat make respect for diversity look so easy and natural. this groundbreaking series featuring comicdom's first Muslim female lead has a lot of points it wants to score regarding difference and it wants to do it in a way that is both respectful and fun. it succeeds. a winning game!
I love that it wants to have it all without sliding into sloppy generalizations or annoying binaries. the need for tolerance is emphasized but critical appraisals go in all d ...more
This review contains *spoilers*.
Ms. Marvel follows Kamala Khan, a Muslim girl from Jersey City who is suddenly empowered with extraordinary gifts. When a strange mist descends and morphs Kamala into a shape-shifting superhuman... fitting in is the least of her problems.
Ms. Marvel also features religion, which, thank you. I love seeing positive portrayals of any religion. And the honest exploration of accepting and loving oneself made my heart sing.
This story is a definite win for me.
And there ...more
I'm going to pretend I haven't seen/read the comments and reviews that basically boil down to "a Muslim American can't be a superhero, and because this story is about a Muslim American teen, it's not really a superhero book". Despite the fact that in many ways, this is Spider-man: family issues, school issues, identity issues, except it happens to be a female character who also happens to be a person of colour and a Muslim. There is nothing in the set of issues here that wouldn't be right at hom ...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
