What Ms Marvel's rare 6th printing means for diversity in comics

Kamala Khan has enraptured the world as many times as she’s saved it. Now, the plucky Pakistani-American teen who made history as the new Ms Marvel, comics’ first ever lead Muslim superhero, is getting a rare sixth printing—and heralding a new era of diversity in comics.

Although the world of comics occupies an increasingly large part of the pop cultural domain—last year the industry did about $800 million in sales—the number of people who actually buy comics is relatively small. Most comics only average about 3,000 copies per printing; with Kamala now on her sixth printing, she’s headed towards a whopping 20,000 print copies sold. 

Still, to put things in perspective, sixth printings are major milestones in the world of comics. Spider-Man Issue #583, the one with President Obama on the cover, only made it to a fifth printing despite making international headlines. Kamala now joins an elite lineup of bestselling comics that have performed beyond all expectations.

SEE, PUBLISHING WORLD!!

Not only is diversity interesting and cool and fun and healthy and good for everyone, IT FREAKING SELLS!

Signal boost, please!

FUCK YEAH

Do you know what it takes for me to reblog a Daily Dot article?

Something this fucking amazing, that’s what.

Also guys I’m still watching The Leftovers. I can’t stop. I’m also falling harder for Mayor Lucy. Especially when she throws Kevin to the wolves. My love for her is infinite in those moments.

It’s an HBO show she’s probably going to be horribly abused in 4 episodes why am I doing this to myself.

Learn to fucking read, dee.

I want a dramatic reinactment of that ass whupping.
(Also, more proof that Onyx Queen sails itself and that Regina is really, really hot for Kiki’s plus-sized bod.)

Courage, I told myself. And this time, I felt it.

It was my friend’s mom’s birthday yesterday. Both our moms are single parents and I started thinking about how strong they had to be for us. Then I started thinking about women of color in general. Being a PoC ain’t a walk in the park by itself, but add being a woman in a patriarchal society? Nahhh. I can’t imagine how hard it must be for women of color. AND THEN people have the nerve to call em out on being hard and growing a thick skin, telling them to smile and be happy n’ shit. Fuck outta here. Women that face all that bull and STILL manage to come out on top amaze me. 
These thoughts inspired this piece. A black Wonder Woman.

You stand before Daenerys Stormborn of the House Targaryen, the First of Her Name, the Unburnt, Queen of Meereen, Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, Breaker of Chains and Mother of Dragons.

Have we talked about how amused I am at DA:II giving Varric a dream fight sequence.

congratulations on your cute → lana parrilla

OH MY GOD IS IT THE BABY STEPS SERIES because I lost my damn mind over that, let me tell you.

YES THAT IS THE ONE THAT IS IT. Witless wailing ensued. Also perhaps stumbled on f!hawke of color/isabela but now I can’t find it.
