Ta-Nehisi Coates’ acclaimed run on BLACK PANTHER returns next month. Featuring art by Daniel Acuña and Ryan Bodenheim, BLACK PANTHER #23 marks the beginning of the epic conclusion of Coates’ redefining work on BLACK PANTHER that began in 2016.

Deep in space, T’Challa has discovered an alternate Wakandan society. Known as the Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda, these ruthless warriors present a dark reflection of T’Challa’s kingdom. Having abandoned their peaceful ways, this powerful empire looks to conquer the cosmos…and Earth’s Wakanda is their next target.

Get your first look at this pivotal chapter in Black Panther’s legacy in the all-new trailer above, featuring never-before-seen artwork from this highly-anticipated issue.

“We’re so excited to bring BLACK PANTHER back to the stands, and we thank all our readers for their patience,” says editor Wil Moss. “I promise, these last three issues will be worth the wait—Ta-Nehisi and Daniel have been building to this finale for over two years now, and the ensuing battle between the forces of T’Challa’s Wakanda and Emperor N’Jadaka’s Intergalactic Empire is going to knock your socks off! Just wait’ll you see who shows up to help defend Wakanda…”
