In a press release today, Marvel Comics offered readers the first glimpse of the much-heralded Ms. Marvel title from writer G. Willow Wilson. First announced in November, the title immediately became a hot-button issue for comics industry commentators and political pundits alike, as it will feature American-born, Pakistani-American Kamala Khan as the series protagonist.
The February release of the book is certain to come with a great deal of fanfare and attention, so reserve a copy while you can.
The press release was accompanied by a three-page preview of Adrian Alphona’s interior art as well as the standard Sara Pichelli cover and variants by Art Adams and Jamie McKelvie, which can be found in the gallery below.
