New Black Panther Comic Book Series Launches In August
Jay Cochran - May 18, 2021
As Black Pantherís intergalactic saga makes its stunning conclusion next Wednesday, Marvel Comics has revealed that the next thrilling chapter for TíChalla, Wakanda, and the Marvel Universe will begin this summer! Officially announced today by The New York Times in an exclusive interview, Academy Award-winning writer John Ridley (12 Years a Slave) will helm Marvelís next Black Panther comic book series alongside Marvelís Stormbreaker artist Juann Cabal (Guardians of the Galaxy), beginning with BLACK PANTHER #1 this August.
Building from the epic last chapter of Ta-Nehisi Coatesí groundbreaking multi-year Black Panther run in BLACK PANTHER #25 next week, Ridley will kick off an action-packed espionage story that will impact everything in TíChallaís life and have ramifications for the entire Marvel Universe!
In this new ongoing series, secrets from TíChallaís past have come back to haunt him. Fresh from returning from his adventures in space, Black Panther receives an unexpected and urgent message from a Wakandan secret agent. TíChalla must race the clock not only to save his agent, but also to keep his true agenda under wraps. Because if the truth comes out, it could cost TíChalla everythingÖ
ďItís a hybrid espionage-superhero thriller, but at its core, itís a love story,Ē Ridley told The New York Times. ďAnd I donít mean just romantic love, although thereís some of that as well. Itís love between friends.
ďWeíre coming out of a summer where we saw Black people fighting for our rights, standing up, fighting in ways that we havenít had to do in years,Ē Ridley added. ďAnd it was really important to me after the year we had where we can have these conversations with Black people and we can use words like love and caring and hope and regret and all these really fundamental emotions that everybody has.Ē
Donít miss Black Pantherís historic moment in BLACK PANTHER #25 next week, and be sure to pick up BLACK PANTHER #1 when it hits stands this August.
