Last night I read it in one sitting.. and now I want to read Vol.2 as soon as possible!
This was a great intro to the characters and Kamala is super-relatable as protagonist and not the typical comic book heroine.

#AbbaInAugust Day 3: Kamala Khan is indeed a #SuperTrouper indicating how increasingly diverse contemporary comics are now. The conversations struck me as refreshingly witty, written with courageous truth, stripped of banalities and convenient tropes – with Kamala‘s character standing out as distinct yet universal all at once.

Finally getting around to some of the titles on my backlogged comics TBR and this was a good one! Plot-wise not a whole lot happens but Kamala is a great character - she‘s a Pakistani teen trying to figure out her family issues and her life in Jersey City when she suddenly gets size and shape changing superpowers to deal with on top of it all. There‘s an introduction of a villain/plot to come but Kamala herself is the reason I‘ll be reading on. ⚡️

I realized that I had some comics on my Kindle I'd never gotten around to either so I'm knocking then out too.

Ms Marvel did not disappoint! Kamala is great and I really appreciate the nuanced views about culture and religion that are packed into just this first volume.

I liked just about everything about this - the artwork, characters, theme, and accessibility to non-comics readers. However, not all that much happened plotwise, which might not be unusual in establishing a character in comics, but I found I was not drawn in to read more volumes.

4. I buy mostly digital but pick up print from my library
5. Amazon
6. .?
@TheBookDream
I've also been getting cross with marvel for how they are cancelling and marketing more diverse titles. This being added to the fact that a lot of female fronted stories keep being given to men. Kelley sue wrote the hell out of carol Danvers to make me love her again!

TheBookDream So, 6: Folders (or pull lists/pull folders) are a form of pre-order system that local comic stores do. You tell them what series you want, and they order an extra of every issue for that series and put it aside for you. At this time, these preorders are the ONLY thing that Marvel counts when they decide what to cancel/keep. Not digital sales, not trades. 2y
TheBookDream But since LCSs are often perceived (and it‘s sometimes true) as unfriendly or abusive to minority customers (or even just shitty behavior to new readers) pull list orders are down on minority character titles leading to cancelation before hey ever get a chance to reach trade audiences (such as the fate of Mockingbird and Iceman.) freaking infuriating. Needs to change. (edited) 2y
Weaponxgirl @TheBookDream ah yes, I've heard of the pull list but I haven't had one as it tends to take up more space and be more expensive. The money thing actually really bothers me as I feel that marvel has got incredibly greedy and I don't like the alienation of poorer readers. Having to have multiple pulls to finish of one story made my brother stop using pulls with marvel and following as many characters 2y

• ...and THIS is why we need more diversity in literature...to expose this kind of blatant ignorance (racism) about other cultures. stupid Americans sometimes, I tell ya what. and I‘m saying that as an American. it‘s 2018–there‘s no excuse for this kind of behavior, in fiction or real life! 🤐😒🙄 •

Definitely my best bookish purchase of the year, which I found a few months ago. I stalked every toy department in every store I went to until the glorious day I rounded the corner and hopefully didn't let out an audible scream. Ms. Marvel was one of the first additions to my growing collection of Marvel heroines. I just wish there was a Kamala Khan variant because I'd get that one, too. #msmarvel #kamalakhan

These were part of my haul from the visit to Chamblins today, along with a book for the #mybloodyvalentineswap. Which brings me to a question...are used books OK when they are part of a swap? This being my first one, I'm not sure if this is frowned upon, or totally acceptable. I certainly don't want the recipient to be disappointed.
What are your thoughts?

FantasyChick I have sent used books as long as they were in good shape. I don't think most people mind...besides, being thrifty means more you can send lol 2y
ReadingOver50 I have both sent and received used books during swaps here. 2y
collegecatlady I send used books sometimes but I always make sure they‘re in very good condition. I‘ve received used books in swaps that were in very bad condition and that is super disappointing. I‘m all for receiving used books but I don‘t want them to look twenty years old! 2y

Kamala is relatable and there‘s a lot I could like about this series, but the first book lacked any sort of plot that could make it a more interesting book. Maybe if I read the rest of the series, I‘ll rate the series as a whole when I‘m finished. The first volume was just not what I‘d hoped it would be.

This captures, so simply, the obsession with outer appearance — you think better hair, better skin, a slimmer (or curvier) figure will make you happy... then you get there, and it‘s a huge disappointment. Because making happiness conditional on the way you look or what you own, makes happiness seem short-lived and unattainable.

Alright, I am currently suffering from major book hangover from finishing the complete awesomeness that is the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy, and everything seems lame and is getting in my nerves (have started and discarded three books since finishing Dreams of Gods and Monsters last night) so I decided to use graphic novels as a palate cleanser 😊

Lindy Graphic novels make great palate cleansers. Pretty tasty in their own right, too. ❤️ 2y

Definately one of my #newfavoritecharacters of #allthebooksof2017. I started reading Ms Marvel in August and it wasn't too long before I was fully caught up. These comics are so fantastic, the characters are so good, and if you are intimidated by the larger Marvel universe, know that you can read Ms Marvel in isolation. She is so wonderful and positive, I absolutely adore her!
