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.

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

Something this fucking amazing, that’s what.

Adventure Time GIVE AWAY Lady Rainicorn Dog Tag Necklace :3 (Please note that the figures around the necklace are mine and are NOT part of the give away, just the necklace). I am posting this tonight/today 7/19/2014 and I will leave it up for a week; during that time feel free to reblog it if you would like a chance to win it :) At the end of the week (next Sat.) I will have a randomizer pick the winner and I will contact you and ship it to you for free :) It would be cool if you were following me, but it is not %100 necessary and I will also include international folks as well, since I feel bad that you tend to get left out of these things :/ This will be my first give away, so I hope it goes well so I can do another :)
