Entertainment Weekly broke the news that this four-issue limited series will be written by Ms Marvel actress herself Iman Vellani together with Sabir Pirzada who also wrote titles like Dark Web: Ms Marvel. Art chores will be done by Carlos Gomez and Adam Gorhan. Ultimate Spider-Man artist Sara Pichelli will also be doing regular covers for this book.

“This was way scarier than joining the MCU for me,” Vellani told EW. “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.”
“It was actually a very humbling experience to work with Iman, because she knows her comics even better than I do, and that is saying something,” Pirzada added. “She was throwing out references to specific comics that came out before either of us were born. She has a very great eye for what makes for a good sequence on the page as drawn by an artist. It was very impressive to me to see her throw out all these references to different artists that she’s been following through the years.”

Vellani has also stated that they are not retconning Kamala’s Inhuman origin. On the contrary, she actually wants to preserve and protect that bit of origin for the character. The actress did promise that the limited series will reflect those core themes and that this would be crazy not just for the fans but also for the character herself.
