Some suggestions for you :

The more you put out there, the more you have to resolve. 'Air' is the most literary comic I've written so far, and that poses problems.

There is a certain danger in thinking about diversity in its own little box, as something that is somehow separate from 'normal' comic books and comics creators.

What we wanted to do was tell a story that felt relatable to anyone who's been a teenager. We haven't all been a second-generation Pakistani-American girl with superpowers, but we've all been 16 and awkward.

We think of divinity as something infinitely big, but it is also infinitely small - the condensation of your breath on your palms, the ridges in your fingertips, the warm space between your shoulder and the shoulder next to you.

I think every Muslim woman has to feel the world out for herself.

I was born in New Jersey and lived there until I was about 10, so Jersey is in my roots.

I think comics are really part of The Zeitgeist. They reflect back to us the issues that we're concerned about in the time they are written.

In many countries in the Middle East - and this is changing in the wake of the Arab Spring - but for a long time, censorship of books and film was a very big deal.

I didn't believe in spiritual homelands, and found God as readily in a strip mall as in a mosque.

If you love things or ideas or people that contradict each other, you have to be prepared to fight for every square inch of intellectual real estate you occupy.

We don't want to create a literary ghetto in which black writers are only allowed to write black characters and women writers are put on 'girl books.'

Some languages expand not only your ability to speak to different people but what you're able to think.

The 'Ms. Marvel' mantle has passed to 'Kamala Khan,' a high school student from Jersey City who struggles to reconcile being an American teenager with the conservative customs of her Pakistani Muslim family.
