FYKK!
Kamala Khan, a Pakistani-American teenager living in New Jersey, has become the new Ms. Marvel. The series, Ms. Marvel, is written by G. Willow Wilson and drawn by Adrian Alphona.

This blog serves to follow Kamala in current continuity while also promoting awareness of her existence. At the moment, Ms. Marvel features the only book with a Muslim female character as its lead.

im a tease

Broadly speaking, then, there are three things publishers can do to appeal to the growing female audience. First, stop demeaning women — because insulting the people you’re selling to is not a good look. Second, give your audience heroes they can celebrate, e.g. books with female lead heroes. Third, hire women. What happens when you put those things together? You get Kamala Khan, the new Ms. Marvel, star of an eponymous comic that’s enjoyed a very rare sixth printings of its first issue and, according to Bleeding Cool, sells more in digital than in print — making it both emblematic of a shifting market and one of the best-selling comics out there today. —Andrew Wheeler, The Marvel/DC Rivalry Finally Extends to Winning the Female Audience (x)

Ms Marvel (2014) #7

Hey hey I drew that!

Ms Marvel 07 is waiting for you in your Local Comic Shop. I drew the pictures, Ian Herring brought the color, G. Willow Wilson wrote the words and Sana Amanat made it all happen.

This issue concludes my little run on Ms Marvel. It was a pleasure and a privilege to be able to work with the brilliant folks who make this book every month, and to contribute what little I can to this character so early in her career.

I love this book.

Kamala is a big deal. Her success, the book’s multiple printings, the wonderful fans that have rallied around it, all of these things tell the story of the change happening in and around comics right now. It’s such an optimistic story, and I love that I got to lend a little ink to it. Thanks to Sana for letting me be a part of this, thanks to Willow for making it SO FUN, to Ian for making me look so much better than I am. And thanks to Kamala’s fans for letting me hang out in their clubhouse for a few months. Y’all have been great company.

-Jake
