Marvel Comics has found themselves with a runaway hit on their hands in the new Ms. Marvel series, and now they’re taking her to the next level.
Since taking the mantle of Ms. Marvel from Carol Danvers in the first arc of her foundling series, Pakistani-American teen Kamala Kahn has checked quite a few items off of her super-hero bucket list. She recently teamed with Wolverine, gotten herself a new super-powered pet, and in October’s issue of The Amazing Spider-Man, she’ll pair up with none other than Marvel’s legendary web-slinger in a tie in to “Spider-Verse”.
Despite a strong start, sales on Ms. Marvel have yet to reach the same stratosphere as those on Spider-Man. Ms. Marvel ranked #66 on Diamond Distributors’ August sales charts, compared with a #2 finish for The Amazing Spider-Man. While it’s obvious that Ms. Marvel has quite a way to go in order to reach the same level of success, the series has won a great deal of attention from both industry and mainstream press, while simultaneously receiving critical acclaim for the work of G. Willow Wilson and Adrian Alphona.
Along with a press release, Marvel Comics released a four page preview as well as a selection of variant covers for the upcoming issue.
