‘Ms. Marvel’ actress Iman Vellani will co-write the series with Sabir Pirzada, with art by Carlos Gómez and Adam Gorham.
As I think we all had already guessed, the recently deceased Ms. Marvel will return to comics in August, thanks to the resurrection protocols used in Marvel’s X-Men comics — meaning yes, she’s a mutant.
The four-issue Ms. Marvel: The New Mutant miniseries will be co-written by actress Iman Vellani and Dark Web: Ms. Marvel writer Sabir Pirzada. Vellani plays Ms. Marvel in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. They’re joined by artists Carlos Gomez and Adam Gorham.
“This was way scarier than joining the MCU for me,” Vellani told Entertainment Weekly. “Those projects feel like they live in their own dimension, so I guess I can separate myself easier. But you can hold a comic book! I’ve never written anything before in my entire life, but I have read many comics, so I just wrote what I would want to read. I was given a very professional tool to write what is essentially my own fan fiction.”

Following the release of a new ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ #1 in April, Marvel will showcase the new creative team’s work with a free issue in May.
Marvel has announced more details and revealed covers for two of their three Free Comic Book Day titles for 2022.
Last year’s Spider-Man/Venom FCBD title previewed the “Beyond” era of Amazing Spider-Man, where Ben Reilly and the Beyond Corporation took over the Spider-Man name from Peter Parker and Marvel re-introduced a “writer’s room” approach to the comic. With the Beyond era wrapping up soon, Zeb Wells — one of several writers currently writing the title — will team with the legendary John Romita Jr. for a relaunch of Amazing Spider-Man. And Marvel will offer a preview of their run in this year’s Spider-Man/Venom FCBD title.
In addition, like last year, Marvel will preview the work Al Ewing, Ram V and Bryan Hitch are doing on Venom. Here’s a look at the main cover by Romita Jr. and the variant cover for the FCBD issue by Jonboy Meyers. Is this the first time we’ve seen a variant cover on a Free Comic Book Day title? I can’t recall that being a thing before.
