After five years, writer G. Willow Wilson's acclaimed run on Ms. Marvel, writing her fan-favorite co-creation Kamala Khan is coming to an end.
Over a month ahead of the run ending with issue #38 next month, artist Jamie McKelvie (The Wicked + The Divine, Young Avengers) has shared his variant cover for the final issue on his Twitter account. The cover features colors by McKelvie along with Matt Wilson (Paper Girls) and Dee Cunniffe (Redneck).
So happy to have been able to do a cover for @GWillowWilson's final Ms. Marvel issue. I wanted to draw something that reflected the character's impact over the last 5 years. Colours more collaborative than normal due to time constraints - @COLORnMATT, @deezoid and me. pic.twitter.com/4Js2Hxji0m— Jamie McKelvie (@McKelvie) January 7, 2019
McKelvie had provided numerous memorable covers for the Kamala Khan-led comic book series over the course of Wilson's five-year run and provided interior art for the character's in-universe inspiration Captain Marvel.
Wilson co-created Kamala Khan in 2013's Captain Marvel #14 with artist Adrian Alphona and editors Sana Amanat and Stephen Wacker. A Muslim American girl living in Jersey City, Khan gained incredible powers, following the Inhumans unleashing the Terrigen Mists on Earth, and became the Marvel Universe's new Ms. Marvel, eventually joining the Champions. The series will be relaunched as The Magnificent Ms. Marvel in March by writer Saladin Ahmed and artist Minkyu Jung.
Ms. Marvel #38 is written by G. Willow Wilson and illustrated by Nico Leon and a whole host of guest artists. It is scheduled to go on sale on February 13 from Marvel Comics.
