[Graphic Novel Reading Challenge 2017] – Ms. Marvel – Vol. 04 – Last Days

So this is unfortunately the last volume I have in my collection, which is kind of unfortunate ’cause it kind of leaves you hanging.

Unfortunately this is a volume that crosses over heavily with the major Marvel event “Secret Wars”…thankfully though you need to know nothing except that it is happening, otherwise you don’t have to worry about any of the details.

There are two big moments in this volume that just make you feel gleeful. The first is Ms. Marvel meeting the original Ms. Marvel, Carol Danvers (who is now Captain Danvers). Kamala is so gleeful and Danvers is kind of gracious in such a kind way that you kind of want to see them team-up all the time.

Then there is Kamala finally telling her mom that she is a superhero…and her mother telling her she knew. Such a tender moment, beautifully rendered by Adrian Alphona (I gotta admit, I tear up every time I look at that image).

The volume is kind of a conclusion and kind of a cliff-hanger for more’s to come, which makes the ending a bit weak (it doesn’t help that there is an additional two issues which has Ms. Marvel and Spider-man teaming up after the main issue storyline which makes it all kind of jarring and uneven).

The collection is not so well done, but the stories within are great!

Now I gotta get the rest of the volumes…anyone care to help? 😀
