The first volume of the Ms. Marvel comic series took home the prize for Best Graphic Story at this year’s Hugo Awards.
Ms. Marvel: No Normal is written by G. Willow Wilson and illustrated by Adrian Alphona and Jake Wyatt. It takes place in the larger Marvel universe and follows Kamala Khan, a young Muslim girl who finds herself gifted with supernatural powers.
The Hugo Awards are a fan-voted award given at the World Science Fiction Convention on a yearly basis since 1955.
Many of the other categories at the Hugos awarded no winner, with fans voting “no award,” after a subset of rabid voters took over the nomination cycle. The full list of winners can be viewed at the Hugo website.
