Title: Ms. Marvel: No Normal
Author: G. Willow Wilson
Genre: Comic, Superhero, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Young Adult
Series: Ms. Marvel, Vol. 1
Publication Date: October 30, 2014
Kamala is an average teenage girl who does her best to handle whatever life throws at her. Then she becomes a superhero, just like the ones she looks up to. Except, she doesn’t necessarily know how or why she got the powers or what to do with them. My only complaint is the plot is a bit cliche… but what else do you expect from a superhero book? In a way, it was kind of normal rather than cliche.
I enjoyed the characters a lot. Yes, this is a “teenage” story. But, I think people from any age can enjoy this one, especially if you’re a fan of the Marvel universe and recognize the characters.
I believe the characters were captured in a great light. The teenagers were teenagers, the parents were parents… other than the superpower part, this is a pretty relatable book for teenagers. Kamala’s voice and narration is top notch, making this a fun read.
Being a comic book, this one is a quick read. The writing style is fun with speech bubbles or lack thereof along with the narration blocks. Some pages don’t have words at all and let the pictures speak for itself.
The art style is awesome as well. This was my first time reading a comic on my Kindle and the crisp colors didn’t disappoint. It was clear and I was able to see every detail that was drawn within its pages.
