Ms. Marvel, vol. 3 - Crushed

Ms. Marvel Vol. 3: Crushed - G. Willow Wilson, Adrian Alphona

Gosh, I just love this series. I love what it is as a story, and I love what it stands for in the future of comics. It's so much fun watching Kamala come into her own, as a superhero and as a girl. I do think this issue seemed short - the three stories were completely disconnected, so felt less like a story arc and more an ad for the Agents of Shield. That said, I still devoured it. I love what Wilson is saying with the character of Kamala, and I love the messages she has for girls. (Yep, I agree they are on-the-nose - but let's remember, her target audience is teens, who haven't had years of experience teasing out subtext.) Her clear and well-placed commentary on consent in this story was fantastic. I can't wait to read the next issue - I can't wait for my kids to read this one - definitely recommended.
