Comedian Hasan Minhaj is joining the incredible creative team for Ms. Marvel’s 50th issue. He will be an addition to the writing team, as he will help bring Kamala Khan’s story in MS. MARVEL #31.
The Daily Show correspondent is considered to be one of the most influential Muslim-Americans in the entertainment industry right now. Minhaj was the featured speaker at the 2017 White House Correspondents Dinner and he will also appear in the upcoming comedy The Spy Who Dumped Me opposite Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon.
He will join writers G. Willow Wilson, Saladin Ahmed, and Rainbow Rowell. Nico Leon, Bob Quinn, Gustavo Duarte, and Elmo Bondoc will be the artists for this issue. Marvel editor Sana Amanat seems very excited about this collaboration:
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. 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!
Ms. Marvel #31 will be available on June 27. Make sure to visit your local comic-book store or pre-order your copy here.
