Ms. Marvel, Volume 1: No Normal

Willow Wilson, G. (2014). Ms. Marvel, Volume 1: No Normal. NY: Marvel Comics.

Hugo Award for Best Graphic Story (2015)
If you’ve already seen and fallen for Wonder Woman in the theatres, what’s next?! Graphic novel, Ms. Marvel, Volume 1: No Normal, presents Pakistani Muslim girl, Kamala Khan, living in Jersey City, New Jersey. Kamala quickly becomes a very relatable character with her typical teenage angst, strict parents, and religion that sets he apart from her friends. Even though she has always idolized Captain Marvel, she still struggles to learn how to control her own shape shifting powers. Life has become even more confusing now.

Great design and an empowering, fun adventure.



One thought on “Ms. Marvel, Volume 1: No Normal

  1. I read this when it came out and thought it was a fresh, and timely story for the times. Wonder Woman, while fantastic and quite good as far as strong female leads go, is still very white washed and characteristic of other cultures. Ms. Marvel would make a great Netflix miniseries!
