BLACK PANTHER: WORLD OF WAKANDA 

This anthology series covers it all: Love. Superhuman triumph. Tales of modernity. Tales of tradition. Developing and further evolving the mythos of Coates’ BLACK PANTHER (2016), “World of Wakanda” offers an origin to the many characters introduced in that run. Poet Yona Harvey (Hemming the Water) focuses on the story of Zenzi, the political revolutionary who became an ally to Changamire as part of “The People.” Novelist Roxane Gay (Bad Feminist, Hunger) centers on the blossoming romance of Ayo and Aneka, former members of the Dora Milaje, who would go on to become their own force for good as the Midnight Angels.

SHURI VOL. 1: THE SEARCH FOR BLACK PANTHER 

Nnedi Okorafor (LagoonWho Fears Death) is a Nigerian-American novelist who has been writing “African futuristic environments for over a decade.” And, this love for Africanfuturism led her to write Shuri’s first solo series. Black Panther’s techno-whiz sister must step into power after her brother is lost on a space mission (see: 2018’s BLACK PANTHER)… and even though Shuri is happiest in a lab, a nation without a leader is a vulnerable one. Now, everyone is looking at the next in line for the throne. But Shuri would rather be testing gauntlets than throwing them down! So it’s time for Shuri to go rescue her brother yet again—with a little help from Storm, Rocket Raccoon and Groot, of course. But when her outer-space adventure puts the entire cultural history of her continent at risk from an energy-sapping alien threat, can Shuri and Iron Man save all of Africa?

RISE OF THE BLACK PANTHER

The secret origin of T’Challa, the Black Panther! Wakanda has always kept itself isolated from Western society, but that’s about to change. Young T’Challa knows he’s destined to become king, but when his father is murdered by outsiders, he finds himself taking up a mantle he may not be ready for. Experience the troubled reign of King T’Chaka! Discover the mother T’Challa never knew! And see how the world first learns of the wondrous nation of Wakanda—including Namor, King of Atlantis; the Winter Soldier; and the ruler of Latveria, Doctor Doom! Plus: As Erik Killmonger makes a devastating move, a missing chapter of T’Challa and Storm’s lifelong romance comes to light—and the Black Panther must decide his unique role in a world full of Super Heroes. Journalist Evan Narcisse and Ta-Nehisi Coates chronicle T'Challa's rise to the throne—and to the Panther legacy that made him an Avenger.
