Our comic book heroes should inspire us.  They should inspire us to achieve greatness, to do the right thing, and to be kind to others.  One of the most influential and inspiring new characters of the past few years has been Kamala Khan, alias Ms. Marvel, and Marvel is celebrating this June with a special anniversary issue of her eponymous series.  Join creators like G. Willow Wilson, Saladin Ahmed, and Gustavo Duarte as they unite for Ms. Marvel #31, where Kamala and her friends take part in one of the most celebrated of childhood events: a slumber party.

Writer and comedian Hasan Minhaj joins all-star creator lineup with G. Willow Wilson, Rainbow Rowell, Saladin Ahmed & more!

New York, NY—June 4, 2018—This June marks 50 issues of Kamala Khan, and in MS. MARVEL #31, we’re celebrating...slumber party style! As MS. MARVEL #31 brings Kamala, Zoe, Nakia and Mike together for a best friends sleepover, Marvel is also bringing along some very special friends to commemorate this landmark issue.

Marvel is also excited to announce that in addition to rising stars and award-winning creators such as G.
