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.



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

Signal boost, please!

Toy Stories

If you thought Woody and Buzz were snarky toys, they you obviously haven’t met Aled Lewis' petulant prints yet.

Lewis, a designer and illustrator based in London, has a knack for creating awkward situations with childhood toys. “This started as a personal project for my own amusement and then began to develop a life of its own,” Lewis wrote on his website. “I created these ‘Toy Stories’ with figurines that I bought in toy stores, found on eBay and was given by friends.”

If you can’t get enough of Aled Lewis’ funny prints, i can recommend you his book “Toy Confidential: The Secret Life of Snarky Toys”, featuring 100 of his images (Get US / EU )

So I was explaining my gender-fluidity to my grandmother

  • Me: So sometimes I'm a boy, but sometimes I'm a girl.
  • Grandma: I have enough idiot granddaughters already
  • Me:
  • Grandma:
  • Me:
  • Grandma: But I also have enough idiot grandsons, so having an idiot who isn't really either one is kind of refreshing.
  • *then later*
  • My mom: Alex, can you come pick up these LEGOs?
  • Me: Yeah... *doesn't move at all*
  • Grandma: Katie, go pick up the LEGOs
  • Me: Yeah, alright *goes to pick up LEGOs*
  • Grandma: See, you addressed the boy, but I addressed the girl. Boys are lazy, girls get crap done.
