Hey hey Fly-Fans, we are back with yet another strong week of comics to choose from for Comic of the Week! Marvel had multiple “All-New” #1’s, Greg Pak brought us Turok, and the Joker’s Daughter featured this month from DC, but only one could claim the title. This week, the winner by a comfortable margin is: Ms. Marvel #1
G. Willow Wilson (Cairo, Air) and Adrian Alphona (Runaways) bring us a newcomer to the Ms. Marvel name: Kamala Khan, a sixteen year old girl of Pakistani descent whose family has strong Islamic values. Disregard any thoughts you may have about any of those character elements being exploitative, they aren’t. Kamala is a perfect fit for a new Marvel character, she is instantly relatable and has a very clearly defined character very early on in this first issue. The plot may be a little on the thinner side, but this is undoubtedly meant to be a character driven issue and that’s where it shines. The artwork is also beautiful with clear pencils and vibrant colors that allow this issue to really stand out on the shelves today.
Just a reminder that tickets are still available for An Evening with Kevin Eastman. Details can be found by clicking HERE
