Love. This. Comic. Kamala is so relate-able, I feel like I would be EXACTLY the same if I was magically bestowed with embiggening powers once strange night by Captain Marvel and Captain American, you know? This had all the awesome character development and plot development of a first volume and I can't wait to read the second one! ( )

Kamala Khan is a teenager from Jersey City who writes fan fiction about her favorite superheroes (who in this universe really exist, not just in comic books), struggles with the strict upbringing of her immigrant Pakistani parents, and engaging with the wider American world as a Muslim girl. On a night when Kamala sneaks out to go to a party, a mysterious fog envelopes the city and Kamala finds herself with the powers to morph her body and gain significant strength. She adopts the persona of her hero Captain America - aka Carol Danvers - and begins protecting Jersey City from weird attacks and invaders. This collection of the first five issues is not overly weighed down by origin story tropes as it depicts Kamala clumsily learning to use her powers while maintaining her ordinary life. ( )

This was a lot of fun. Great story and art, witty conversations. Superpowers aside, Kamala is a real teenager with real problems. She is a Muslim girl growing up in New Jersey, butting heads with her parents, trying to figure out how to balance loyalty to her parents and her heritage with wanting to be true to herself. I loved it. ( )

Kamala is fun, and her setting and crew are refreshing, being less tied to the overwhelming world of Marvel and more in real people world. Great reading. ( )

I loved this. It hit me in that emotional place where I want to believe in heroes and I just fucking loved it.

I liked the art a lot, and I love Kamala and all her expressions and her big hat. She's adorable and brave and ... Emotional place, I said. ( )
