I heard great things about Ms. Marvel and it lived up to the hype.
G. Willow Wilson writes some of the best character development I’ve seen in a graphic novel.
This is a perfect comic for a book club because it opens up discussion about subtle prejudice, feminism, body image, religion and more. Even though it ties into the Marvel Universe readers don’t have to be familiar with previous comics to follow the story- it serves as an introduction.
I think this is particularly important in my community right now where I’m hearing a lot of negativity about Muslim refugees. The main character is a young Muslim girl with a strict but caring family. She wants to find a way to fit in while maintaining her culture and it is challenging for her to find acceptance.
I have already ordered Vol. 2 and look forward to reading it.
