Graphic Novel Review: "Ms. Marvel #1: No Normal" by G. Willow Wilson
I LOVE this story line! Kamala is so easy to relate to, and all the issues that she's having with this transformation make absolute sense. And she's fun, too. She has a couple of best friends that represent the worlds she's trying to piece together within herself: A fellow Muslim girl and an American boy with nerdish tendencies just like her. She gets some evil to battle as well, and considering how long she's been a superhero - it doesn't go very well. But the big story is really dealing with being yourself, figuring out who you are, and finding peace with that.
For extra fun - check out the fine details in the art, especially in the backgrounds. Some definitely made me giggle, and it all worked to keep a more lighthearted feel to this book, even though it is certainly dealing with a heavy topic.
This book collects issues #1-5 as well as some material from All-New Marvel Now! Point One #1. Can't wait for more!
