MS MARVELS AMERICA NO NORMAL SC
UNIVERSITY PRESS OF MISSISSIPP
(W) Jessica Baldanzi, Hussien Rashid
Though the Marvel-verse is becoming much more racially, ethnically, and gender diverse, many of these comics remain shy about religion. The new Ms. Marvel, Kamala Khan, is a notable exception, not only because she is written and conceived by two women, Sana Amanat and G. Willow Wilson, but also because both of these women bring their own experiences as Muslim Americans to the character. This distinct collection brings together scholars from a range of disciplines to engage with a single character, exploring Khan's significance for a broad readership. With essays from and about diverse voices on an array of topics from fashion to immigration history to fandom, this volume includes an exclusive interview with Wilson by gender studies scholar Shabana Mir.
