Working on this book and connecting with readers and fans has been a unique joy for all of us. At a time when it sometimes seems the world is in a state of constant conflict, it is a privilege to work on a series that unites us through adventure, humor and a celebration of our common humanity. Thank you to everyone who believes in Kamala Khan, and thank you to Angouleme.”
