Vogue Taps into the Marvel & Sana Amanat for Women's Day

For International Women's Day, Vogue taps into male-dominated spheres, bringing to the front empowering female figures that are re-writing the narrative of the industry, and one of them is behind this comic book editorial, entitled 'Ms. Marvelous.' The feature centers itself around the life and work of Sana Amanat -- an avid comic book lover, as well as a novel creator and editor for Marvel.

The article highlights her life, "growing up in New Jersey with three brothers as part of a Pakistani-American household," her undying passion for comic books and her "most personal creation" -- Kamala Khan, a.k.a. Ms. Marvel.

The wonderful comic book editorial by Vogue is undoubtedly female-empowering, confrontational about the male dominant industry and occasional sexist comments, as well as a likely source of inspiration for up-and-coming cartoon artists.
