This past weekend Marvel Comics’ Ms. Marvel, by G. Willow Wilson and Adrian Alphona, won the second annual Dwayne McDuffie Award for Diversity in Comics, presented at Long Beach Comic Expo in Long Beach, California.

Praising the fans of Ms. Marvel, Wilson gave an impassioned acceptance speech graciously thanking all the fans who make the book the success that it is. “This award is very special to me, not just because of its connection to Dwayne, but because of what it represents…it is something being kept alive by one thing only and that is the readers and the fans whose passion, whose cosplay, whose wonderful repartee on Tumblr and Twitter make this book such a joy to work on.”

Wilson continued, “You are the beating heart to this series. I would like to dedicate this award to them – to the readers – to the fans. They are the ones changing the face of this industry.”

Ms. Marvel is the groundbreaking heroine that has become an international sensation! Kamala Khan is an ordinary girl from Jersey City – until she is suddenly empowered with extraordinary gifts. But who truly is the all-new Ms. Marvel? Teenager? Muslim? Inhuman? Find out as she takes the Marvel Universe by storm!

The Dwayne McDuffie Award for Diversity in Comics is named for McDuffie, a writer and producer of several comic books and animation series whose work includes Marvel’s Damage Control and Deathlok. He wrote stories for dozens of other comics, including, Marvel’s Spider-Man, Captain Marvel, and Avengers Spotlight.
