Ms. Marvel is on a trip through the multiverse in Kamala Khan’s new series

It can be difficult to get a superhero series when its protagonist is indelibly associated with a particular developer or imaginative group — as Kamala Khan is with G. Willow Wilson and Adrien Alphona. However I believe YA author Samira Ahmed and artist Andrés Genolet (Runaways) are off to a terrific start.

Everyone appears to be going on parallel universe-hopping experiences nowadays, however just Ms. Marvel is suddenly carried to the Bollywood variation of the Marvel Universe.

What else is occurring in the pages of our preferred comics? We’ll inform you. Invite to Monday Funnies, Polygon’s weekly list of the books that our comics editor enjoyed this previous week. It’s part society pages of superhero lives, part reading suggestions, part “look at this cool art.” There might be some spoilers. There might not suffice context. However there will be fantastic comics. (And if you missed out on the last edition, read this.)


In Ahmed and Genolet’s brand-new five-issue miniseries, Kamala gets captured up in a mishap with her cousin’s wormhole device and end up in a Jersey City where everybody imitates a Bollywood motion picture — it rules. And I seriously question it’ll be the last unusual Marvel Earth that the series will check out.

Today’s Nightwing, geared up with no less than 10 double-page spreads, was a single adjoining image from front to back, informing the story of our hero saving his pup from some craven mobsters.

The Reject slugs Ikaris in the mouth, and then cradle’s his hand, muttering “You should have dodged that.” “Dodging,” Ikaris says with fascination in his eyes, “Tell me about this ‘dodging,’” in Eternals #8 (2021).

Kieron Gillen and Esad Ribić’s Eternals — possibly the very best the series has actually ever been, consisting of Kirby’s run — is back. With the discovery that whenever an Eternal is reanimated it costs a random human life, the never-ceasing, unstoppable Ikaris is having a hard time to find out to eliminate like his death has repercussions.

Supergirl rides Comet the Super-horse through blue and pink stars at a speed to break the laws of science and magic, pursued by a rainbow streak of something in Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow #6 (2021).

Each month there’s a brand-new concern of Supergirl: Lady of Tomorrow and each month artist Bilquis Evely and colorist Matheus Lopes definitely eliminate it.

A massive face, patterned in the five tones of the four color printing process that created American comics speaks to the defenders in huge block letters as they step out of a panel in a comic page and into blank white space in Defenders #4 (2021).

With every concern of Protectors, the titular group has actually taken a trip back to the next earliest version of the Marvel Universe, and as they do, Al Ewing and Javier Rodríguez have remade the world in easier kind — up until this concern where they get here in a location where simplified archetypes of all of Marvel’s heroes and bad guys punch it out forever on a large fight plain, and the control of the colors cyan, magenta, yellow, and black permit you to manage truth.

Needless to state, this rips.

Eight panels of a training montage with a middle-aged Selina Kyle and Killer Croc. They gripe about old injuries and fall asleep on the couch afterward, in Catwoman: Lonely City #2 (2021).

Definitely among the most enjoyable and best-looking comics on stands today is Catwoman: Lonely City. This has actually got huge Batman: The Animated Series vibes, in a stylishly rendered near-future Gotham City where old characters take brand-new functions — and Selina Kyle and Killer Croc are rooming together and training-montaging for the supreme break-in.

Likewise I simply like Croc’s smushed face.
