    I have a complicated relationship with Kamala Khan. If I knew this girl in real life, I would probably be friends with her. We would probably share some nerdy interests and I would review/edit her fan-fiction that we see her writing in this graphic novel. However, I cannot stand the team of the "Champions," and I generally dislike this particular generation of heroes and what they represent. This Ms. Marvel's race/religion are not a problem for me at all, and I applaud Marvel for providing reade I have a complicated relationship with Kamala Khan.

This Ms. Marvel's race/religion are not a problem for me at all, and I applaud Marvel for providing readers with a flawed, realistic bit of representation for Muslim-Americans. This particular graphic novel made Kamala come across as the dumbest she has ever been. From not recognizing the Growing Man robot she had fought earlier that day when he showed up as an action figure in her home? To, the idiocy in which she didn't recognize a supervillain using his supervillain name as an online handle commenting upon her fan-fiction. She revealed some valuable classified Avengers intelligence online. Characters tried to fob this away, basically saying, "Meh, the internet." But this showed very poor judgment on our title character's part. I could really relate to the figurative idea of being "stretched thin." (Made literal here because of Ms. Marvel's shapeshifting powers.) I currently have about 4 jobs and I am feeling it. But beyond this childish conceit, it's just hard for me to forgive a bright girl acting so very stupid.

    This was super cute! I loved the art work and the inclusion of Miles and Doreen. What I didn’t like though was how simple the plot was. I don’t understand how Kamala didn’t catch the whole toy robot thing.

    A Muslim Superhero! EEEK! Finding out that Ms. Marvel is actually a Muslim teen was the highlight of my week! While we may be from very different backgrounds, I had never seen anyone who believed in the same things as I do presented in such an “all-American” heroic way. But back to the quality of the graphic novel itself. In addition to the representation, I appreciated that superhero-ing was only one of many equal conflicts in Kamala’s life.

But back to the quality of the graphic novel itself. In addition to the representation, I appreciated that superhero-ing was only one of many equal conflicts in Kamala’s life. She was just as worried about the evil robot coming after her as taking care of her baby nephew! This made the conflict all that more complex and interesting to read. My one qualm is the same qualm I have with almost all Marvel and DC stories: while I love the superheroes, I feel like it can be hard to keep up with the universe as a whole. They come out with so much (admittedly wonderful) content, that I couldn’t read/watch/listen to it all if I tried! Because of that, parts of the story life references to past events and world-building explanations are lost. However, because this is by no means the only book I’ve had this problem with, if I could give this four and a half stars, I would!

    Just a spin-off, for a younger audience, based on DC GN YA line...

    Kamala Khan aka Ms Marvel faces a new villain who wants to infiltrate the tower. She fails to get any clues about hum and managing her time. When an anonymous gift arrives, it arouses some suspicion in her. The plot is good and the illustrations are great. A recommended read to all Marvel fans. Waiting for more to follow.

    I received an advance copy of Ms. MARVEL: stretched Thin from Scholastic's Graphix imprint in exchange for an honest review. Lowkey, this graphic novel totally won me over. I love Kamala and her family and all her friends. Would read more Ms. MARVEL ASAP.

    This is a spoiler free review. Ms. Marvel: Stretched Thin is a great new original graphic novel by Graphix and Marvel. The main audience for this book is children ages 8 to 12. I think kids will really enjoy this graphic novel. The story is engaging, funny, entertaining, and even has a few thrills, and a great mystery to solve.

The main audience for this book is children ages 8 to 12. I think kids will really enjoy this graphic novel. The story is engaging, funny, entertaining, and even has a few thrills, and a great mystery to solve. At the beginning of this book Kamala Khan receives an anonymous gift, which is the start of our mystery story. Ms. Marvel also has to battle wits with an old Iron Man nemesis from the comics. You might recognize this robotic fend from the cover art. This baddie tries to infiltrate both the Avengers tower and Ms. Marvel’s home life. In both cases we get to see some great battles and awesome team work as Ms. Marvels works with her friends to save the day. We also get to see Ms. Marvel work with her superhero friends: Squirrel Girl and Miles Morales the Ultimate Spider-man. If you or your children or students are fans of Ms. Marvel comics and Kamala Khan you’ll really appreciate this graphic novel. All of Kamala’s usual supporting cast are in Ms. Marvel: Stretched Thin. Nakia and Bruno have some great conversations with Kamala as they try to solve a mystery. Nakia is such a great character and I like how she helps Kamala along the way. Nakia helps keep Kamala grounded as she tries to navigate through a lot of conflicts in her life starting with problems with her powers, trying to find time to train with the Avengers, problems with her parents, trying to keep her super hero life separate from her personal life, and remembering to pick up her nephew from daycare on time! Similar to Peter Parker/Spider-man, Kamala deals with so many real life problems, which is one of the main reasons I find her to be such a likable character. They both have really complex lives filled with so many relatable daily problems that you can’t help but root for her. We also get to see Kamala Khan try to keep her superhero life and personal life separate. At the beginning of the story we see Ms. Marvel training with Squirrel Girl and Miles Morales. They are all such close friends who work so well together in the heat of battle. We also see how chummy Kamala is to Nakia and Bruno, her friends from school. Over the course of the story we slowly see what happens if Kamala’s two lives blend over into each other. Ms. Marvel: Stretched Thin also does a great job showing children how you don’t have to fight every battle alone. Sometimes even heroes lean on their friends and loved ones when they need help. You see the importance of family and how important Kamala’s friends are to her. The artwork in Ms. Marvel: Stretched Thin is beautiful. The artwork is very bright and soft looking. It reminds me of pastels or watercolor. I think children will be really drawn to the illustrations. The colors and the artwork has a lot of motion to it that I think children will enjoy. I highly recommend Ms. Marvel: Stretched Thin. It’s an entertaining graphic novel that all ages will enjoy reading. Stay awesome and keep reading!

    An entry in Marvel’s new series of graphic novels for young readers, this Kamala Khan story captures the central Ms Marvel metaphor— how this most flexible of heroes is “stretched thin” in her attempts to balance school, family, and Avenging. Simple, warm-hearted storytelling with a so-so villain, some heroic cameos (including a very softened Iron Man), good family interactions, and a tidy resolution.

    The work of being a superhero is pretty all-consuming, but life doesn't work that way -- there's school and family life and all the other details that give life quality to keep going well. Thus the importance of balance and teamwork even in Avenger training. Who knew! Kids will appreciate young people learning to harness their power, and hopefully learn some ways to make that work even in their own lives.

    This was super cute and would have been a solid 5/5 if GWW hadn't already done a villain exactly like this in her run. But it had a surprising amount of Nakia, Miles, and even a surprise MCU!Valkyrie poster, so I really can't complain too much. Plus the art was adorable.

    What can I say? I've loved Kamala Khan from day one, and I miss her monthly series. Though for younger readers (I'm 57), it's a solid story of heroics and family and friends, just like all of her adventures. What can I say?

    I love it. I like the interaction of Tony Stark and the youngling heroes. Sigh... I guess we won't have that in MCU anymore. I love it. I like the interaction of Tony Stark and the youngling heroes. Sigh... I guess we won't have that in MCU anymore.
