Ms. Marvel in the Making (also, Diversity)

I truly believe Ms. Marvel is one of the most important new comic book series to come around in a while. The more different kinds of stories there are featuring different characters with diverse backgrounds (made by diverse creators) means there are richer stories that even more people can relate to. This is a good thing.

So many different people read comic books, and everyone wants to feel like they can see themselves in them. I know that when I was a kid (and even still now) I got super excited whenever an asian superhero showed up in the book I was reading. The world, and more specifically the United States, has never been just one kind of people. This has never been a more important or relevant issue because diversity is growing, and the media we consume and enjoy must reflect that. If you’ve got a problem with that, evolve. Comics are for everyone.

So my enthusiasm for the new Ms. Marvel of course means I must draw the new Ms. Marvel, as  you can see. Expect a full color print sometime soon, too. #KamalaKorps
