Saladin Ahmed, Minkyu Jung and Ms. Marvel take on The Magnificent in March
Creator and longtime Ms. Marvel writer G. Willow Wilson is moving on, and Marvel have announced her successor:
New York, NY—December 14, 2018—Marvel is excited to announce that this spring, Eisner Award–winner Saladin Ahmed (Black Bolt, Exiles) and rising star Minkyu Jung (Batgirl, Nightwing) will take the reins of one of Marvel’s most beloved new characters in THE MAGNIFICENT MS. MARVEL #1!
“I think she’s really the face of everything that’s new and fresh and exciting and ‘21st century’ at Marvel, and with superheroes in general. To be given stewardship of that is a big deal to me,” Ahmed told Entertainment Weekly in an exclusive announcement. “It’s always thrilling being given responsibility over a beloved character. It’s particularly meaningful for me to be taking over from Willow.”
“It just seems so incredible that this character, who was just going to be a fun project for both of us loosely influenced by Sana’s own experiences growing up, had become a cultural phenomenon that was going to outlive us both,” current Ms. Marvel writer G. Willow Wilson also told EW. “Given that was true, I really wanted to be cognizant of the fact that superheroes thrive with a multiplicity of voices telling their stories. I wanted to leave on a high note.”
