The 50th issue of Ms. Marvel is actually Ms. Marvel #31. (Yes, I know… but they relaunched the title, so it technically is the 50th issue. They never renumbered the TPBs, so there you go.) To celebrate this 50th issue, Marvel’s added Peabody Award-winning writing and Daily Show correspondent, Hasan Minhaj, to the list of writers working on Kamala’s slumber party that won’t go as planned.
Official PR follows:
The 50th issue of MS. MARVEL just got even bigger! In addition to its already stellar team of creators, comedian Hasan Minhaj will be joining the team as a writer. The Peabody Award-winner and “The Daily Show” correspondent will be writing part of Kamala Khan’s big sleepover-Jersey City battle story in MS. MARVEL #31.
The multi-talented Minhaj has been recognized as one of the most influential Muslim Americans in media and has brought his perspective to a multitude of platforms. He was the featured speaker at the 2017 White House Correspondents Dinner and his one-man show “Homecoming King” is currently streaming on Netflix. Minhaj will also appear in the upcoming comedy “The Spy Who Dumped Me.”
Minhaj joins writers G. Willow Wilson, Saladin Ahmed, and Rainbow Rowell to propel Kamala Khan into a slumber party — and Super Hero fight — to remember! The MS. MARVEL #31 writing team will be joined by an equally excellent squad of artists: Nico Leon, Bob Quinn, Gustavo Duarte, and Elmo Bondoc.
“This issue is a truly a one-of-a kind celebration! In honor of all the different kinds of fans Ms. Marvel has, we thought it fitting to make this a jam session of rockstar talent from across the comics and entertainment industry,” said editor Sana Amanat. “It’s a special story with all the heart and humor we’ve come to love with Kamala Khan. We’re thrilled we made it to 50 issues. Here’s to the next 50!”
