Bookworming: Various Comic Trades

All of these titles are available to read free at the time of this writing if you have Amazon Prime. Naturally, they are all volume ones because the first one is... you know.

Ms. Marvel Vol. 1 No Normal, G. Wilson, Adrian Alphona, Sara Pichelli, ***
Classic feels-out-of-place-in-society origin story made contemporary by having a Muslim hero.

Star Wars Vol. 1 Skywalker Strikes, Jason Aaron, John Cassady, ***
For the Star Wars fans that want to fill in the gap between Star Wars and Empire.

Star Wars Darth Vader Vol. 1 Vader, Kieron Gillen, Salvador Larroca, Adi Granov, ****
Surprisingly good, self-contained but with places to go, it is still for the Star Wars fans, but if you are one, this is one worth a look.

Thor Vol. 1, J. Michael Straczynski, Coipel Olivier, ***
Largely setup, not really much here to hook me into continuing. Definitely fits into the "good if you like that sort of thing" category.

Jessica Jones: Alias Vol. 1, ****
Surprisingly good hard-boiled PI story set in the Marvel universe.
