Ms. Marvel #6
Jacob Wyatt, Ian Herring, G. Willow Wilson
Jake Wyatt’s action direction is exciting and kinetic, while being very easy to follow and maximizing page space. He’s got a distinct pacing that lends itself incredibly well to action/comedy scenes like the above. I’d love to see him get to explore that more, in wherever his work takes him (though obviously Ms. Marvel’s powerset is uniquely suitable to the same genre).
I’m pretty happy with how this scene came out. The reviewer above (very kindly) gives me a lot of credit, but this sequence was good before I ever got to it. Willow created some great tension here between peril and humor, and Ian did beautiful things to it with color. And Sana’s decision to saddle Logan with Kamala for a few issues was pretty inspired.
Comics, like tennis or swimming, can be either an individual or a team sport, depending on the day.
I’m very lucky that I get to play it both ways.
