The comic takes on "radicalization" and turns it is upside down. In the MAGA US one would expect Pakistani-American Kamala's religious and conservative brother to be radicalized, but he's not the one. This volume also has echoes of the supremacist and isolationist feelings that 45 rode to the Presidency. The core problem is that the "people" in Jersey City no longer want super-heroes in their city, they should just stay in NYC where they belong. The action takes place during the celebration of Eid, which provides a nice contrast of sharing/kindness to exclusion/ hatred. I read this for my 2018 Hugo nominations and for my 2018 Reading Challenge.
