Knowing the final incursion is not the end of the Marvel universe, only the start of the new one, may have taken a bit of the punch from the books dealing with it. However, the fact that these characters believe this to be the end can be just as moving. This is exactly what G. Willow Wilson succeeds at doing in “Ms. Marvel” #19.

The brilliant way this book deals with the very end is by giving Kamala no more villains or fights to face, instead letting the whole issue give her closure with every relationship in her life, good and bad. We see Kamala come to terms with her family, with her best friend, with her frenemy, with Bruno, and most importantly, with herself.

The writing is touching, the art allows the characters to have quiet moments amidst the chaos, and it overall works as the well-oiled machine this series has been from day one.

There isn’t much more to say, except that we anxiously await the return of this series post-reboot. “Ms. Marvel” is one of Marvel’s most fun and heartwarming books right now, if not ever.
