Congratulations to Nnedi Okorafor and the creative teams behind BLACK PANTHER: LONG LIVE THE KING and SHURI for their 2019 NOMMO Award nominations!

Black Panther/Shuri

Each year, members of the African Speculative Fiction Society nominate works authored by African writers. These two powerful Wakandan tales—both written by Dr. Okorafor—have captured imaginations of Marvel readers new and old, with the outstanding creative teams behind them delivering fascinating entries starring fan-favorite characters. 

BLACK PANTHER: LONG LIVE THE KING, written by Nnedi Okorafor and Aaron Covington with art by André Araújo, Mario Del Pennino, and Tana Ford, finds the advanced African nation rebuilding in the wake of revolution when King T'Challa finds his people besieged by a massive monster tearing through the country, leaving a trail of destruction in its wake.

SHURI, written by Nnedi Okorafor with art by Leonardo Romero and Jordie Bellaire and covers by Sam Spratt, tells the tale of the Black Panther's techno-genius sister as she's confronted with the disappearance of her brother. In his absence, the people of Wakanda look to the next in line for the throne...
