This is the first story arc in LOVE UNLIMITED! What can readers expect from this teenage love story?
NADIA SHAMMAS: A lot of yearning! This [arc] puts Ms. Marvel and Red Dagger in each other's paths while trying to chase down the same villain. The last time they saw each other, things ended awkwardly and were unresolved. That tension, that push-pull, is totally the heart of this dynamic. Will they deny the feelings that are already there? Can they make that final leap? Read to find out.
NATACHA BUSTOS: I hope readers find the reunion of Red Dagger and Ms. Marvel exciting! The plot will make them have to be together on numerous occasions and sparks could fly.
What do you both think is so unique about Ms. Marvel and Red Dagger’s story?
NADIA SHAMMAS: I love that they have this history of just kind of flitting in and out of each other's lives, and each time it's so instantly intense. It makes sense though—they share this connection, this innate understanding of each other's position. It's what makes their dynamic so uncertain and exciting.
NATACHA BUSTOS: I think of them as that kind of love relationship that some teenagers have in the summer, when they meet that person they like only once a year and everything is new and different from their usual routine.
What is your Ms. Marvel fandom? Any comic runs or creators you especially love?
NADIA SHAMMAS: Personally, I am a Kamala/Miles Morales fan, although I might be tempted to change teams after working on this project! G. Willow Wilson got me into Marvel Comics, so I will always admire what G. Willow did with Ms. Marvel forever. That first run from 2014-2015 was just groundbreaking.
NATACHA BUSTOS: That first run from G. Willow, Adrian Alphona, and Jake Wyatt was groundbreaking for me too. I hadn't read anything that fresh before, and I'm glad to see that the series has grown so much over the years. I also loved what Minkyu Jung and Saladin Ahmed were doing in MAGNIFICENT MS. MARVEL (2019). As an artist, I find Minkyu's drawings wonderful.
