“I think she’s really the face of everything that’s new and fresh and exciting and ‘21st century’ at Marvel, and with superheroes in general. To be given stewardship of that is a big deal to me,” Ahmed told Entertainment Weekly
in an exclusive announcement. “It’s always thrilling being given responsibility over a beloved character. It’s particularly meaningful for me to be taking over from Willow.”
“It just seems so incredible that this character, who was just going to be a fun project for both of us loosely influenced by Sana’s own experiences growing up, had become a cultural phenomenon that was going to outlive us both,” current Ms. Marvel
writer G. Willow Wilson also told EW
. “Given that was true, I really wanted to be cognizant of the fact that superheroes thrive with a multiplicity of voices telling their stories. I wanted to leave on a high note.”

KILL SIX BILLION DEMONS RETURNS WITH BOOK THREE THIS MARCH12/14/18 @ 2:42 pm EST
Two-time Eisner Award winner Erica Henderson (The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl
) and Eisner-nominated writer Kyle Starks (Rick and Morty
) team up for the gut-busting, mega-violent action-comedy Assassin Nation
this March from Image/Skybound.
“I’m so excited for this book,” said Henderson. “Kyle and I have been wanting to work together for as long as we’ve been friends. It’s great to finally make that happen. There aren’t a lot of comics with Kyle’s action and comedy sensibilities, so it’s just been a blast. On top of that, it’s nice to work in other genres. My professional career has been largely all-ages media so it’s been REALLY fun to get some gore and explosions in there too. Assassin Nation
is great fun but NOT for the whole family.”
The World’s (Former) Greatest Hitman has a hit out on him. What to do? Why, hire the 20 best assassins in the world to be his bodyguards, of course. These mean-as-hell hired guns and murderers will have to work together to keep the new crime boss safe, figure out who’s trying to off him, and also… survive.
“Since I got into the comics industry, I’ve wanted to do two things: one, work with my dear friend Erica Henderson; and two, write a book with 20 hitmen being hired to be bodyguards to the world’s former best assassin,” said Starks. “Truly, two things I love more than nearly anything: my friendship with Erica and a barrel full of trained killers set loose on a thrilling adventure ride of murder, mystery, and mayhem.
“I’m super excited about Assassin Nation
,” he added. “Erica and I made a ton of great characters and put them through a really fun story. I mean, look, we are both action movie super fans, and getting to make something together has been a true joy that I think will be passed on to the readers. It’s going to be an adrenaline thrill ride of violence and jokes, and we can’t wait for people to get their hands on it.”Assassin Nation
#1 (Diamond code: JAN190122) will be available on Wednesday, March 13th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, February 18th.
It will also be available for purchase across many digital platforms, including the official Image Comics iOS app, Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, comiXology, and Google Play. Fans can also subscribe to receive the series delivered by mail within the domestic U.S. on Image Direct.
