One of the comics I’m looking forward to this year is Ms. Marvel from writer G. Willow Wilson and artist Adrian Alphona. Here is a preview of the first issue due next month.
I am a Ms. Marvel (and Captain Marvel!) fan, and I am so stoked for the new series, I can’t even!!!!
I know a lot of people aren’t really into legacy characters, but I think they’re wonderful. They were a big part of the draw for me back before DC rebooted and ruined everything. I like the idea of having a new person take up the mantle of a retired or dead superhero, because then you still get the villains and you know (generally) what style of story you’re in for, but it’s a totally new person with new relationships and new obstacles to overcome. As opposed to just regressing and restarting the same old characters over and over and over again, which is a problem with both Marvel and DC.
So yeah, I think it’s great that we’re getting a brand new take on Ms. Marvel, and I can’t wait to read it. :D
