MS. MARVEL #1: Another all new number one issue of a comic that we just had an all new number one issue of not all that long ago, Ms. Marvel #1! If you're sensing a theme this fall, it would be that all of the Marvel books have really low numbers after the Battle of the Worlds (or something like that).
I'm just happy that one of my favorites, Kamala Khan has returned from the year's big event and is even more awesome as she has joined the Avengers. I can't really keep up with which formation of the Avengers (New? All New? Shiny New? Standard?) she is in, but it does include the latest incarnation of Captain America (Sam Wilson) and Thor (Jane Foster) as well Nova, Iron-Man, Vision, and Miles Morales Spider-Man. I think Peter Parker Spider-Man is running around in a different book (or five).
Written by G. Willow Wilson and drawn by Takeshi Miyazawa & Adrian Alphona, Ms. Marvel looks to be continuing its streak of awesome fun!
I was a little disappointed when Jane Foster was revealed as the woman behind the hammer. I can't really put my finger on the reason why, although I really liked the Shield Agent (whose name is currently escaping me) and it might have been nice to have a truly new female character added to the mix as the lead. However, I trust Jason Aaron's writing to bring me around to why Jane will be the best Thor. The art by Russell Dauterman and the coloring by Matt Wilson set a beautiful backdrop for Jane's fight for her life and for the realms.
Bonus Picks: Spider-Woman #1, The Beauty #4 , Lumberjanes #20 (There are a lot of great comics out this week!)
