My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“My name is Kamala Kahn. And I’m here to take out the trash.”

Kamala is a pretty kick ass character. Like so many teenage girls, she is struggling with anonymity from her overbearing, traditional family and what face to show the world. Only in this instance, she isn’t sure if she should shape-shift into Captain Marvel or wear a mask when she is wielding her new-found powers.

I have an embarrassing lack of knowledge of the history of Ms. Marvel which tends to be my problem with superhero comics. I don’t read them because I feel like I need to go back and start at the beginning or get there back story and then get overwhelmed by how much content there is! Most of my graphic novel experience has been memoir. But first Muslim headline character seems too important not to pick it up.

So now I have started a journey with Kamala Khan and have no excuse not to keep up with her now. This was very enjoyable and I can’t wait to see how she grows as a character.
