“Jubilation Lee was an important character for me growing up as an Asian American kid in the '90s," says Strain, "so it's an incredible feeling knowing that I've been able to directly contribute to the development of her character and history.”

"It's a real honor to be able to represent the Asian community by working on this Jimmy Woo short with Darren Shan, Greg Pak, and Brian Reber," Lee says. "Creating this story was an amazing experience, and I still can't believe MARVEL'S VOICES: IDENTITY is my debut at Marvel. I am so thankful for this unique opportunity and hope you enjoy the story!"

Colorist: Neeraj Menon
“This story I'm getting to tell featuring Ms. Marvel is a deeply personal one in which Kamala faces difficult questions about how to identify with a place that is so fundamental to who she is and yet it can feel foreign at the same time -- a challenge that I often face, myself," says Pirzada. "It's an honor to tell this story alongside such talented creators. This is something I'll get to enjoy as a creator and a fan at the same time -- a new first for me!”
“Ms. Marvel has always been so down to earth and relatable to me and many others in her experiences," adds Ahmed, "and I'm super happy to have had a part in telling this special story!”
Writer: Jeremy Holt
Artist: Alti Firmansyah
Colorist: Irma Kniivila
"If someone had told me that I'd be published by Marvel this year, I wouldn't have believed them," Holt says. "I'm so honored by the opportunity to showcase an underrepresented character like Silhouette, and to add to her story in a meaningful way."
“Jeremy Holt tells a beautiful and detailed story about bravery, vulnerability, and love, which makes it easy for me to pour all my heart into," notes Firmansyah. "The story really speaks to me and I hope my line art resonates back to all of you.”
Writer: Alyssa Wong
Artist: Whilce Portacio
Colorist: Jay David Ramos
Wong: “Wave is special to me." begins Wong. "My very first Marvel story was about her and Aero, and as a Filipino American, having the chance to write a Filipino superhero was incredible. So when Darren asked me to write a Wave story for this project, with Whilce Portacio, I was stoked! Whilce is a legend and I'm honored to work on this Wave and Bishop team-up story with him. With Jay David Ramos on colors, we have a whole team of Filipino creators on this story. And that's just so cool.”
