Brand New – Marvel Comics Black Panther #1
One of Marvel Comics’ most thought-provoking and perceptive writers today, Ta-Nehisi Coates (Between the World and Me) will be writing a brand new BLACK PANTHER series, adding an exciting,erudite new voice to the All-New, All –Different Marvel lineup.
Along with legendary artist Brian Stelfreeze, the New York Times best-selling author will be adding some extra excitement to one of Marvel’s most important and long-running characters.
In this series, T’Challa finds his indomitable will tested by a superhuman terrorist group called The People that has sparked a violent uprising among the citizens of Wakanda. T’Challa knows the country must change to survive — the question is, will the Black Panther survive the change?
“Wakanda is really the light of the world, in the Marvel Universe. And yet it’s a system of governance that has not advanced beyond the idea of blood-rule,” says Coates. “It’s always seemed to me that T’Challa was aware of this discrepancy. Among the monarchs of Marvel –Namor and Doctor Doom for instance– T’Challa has always been distinguished to me by his discomfort on the throne, and with the problems of one-man rule. I am very much looking forward to exploring that tension.”
That tension and conflict is what will fire BLACK PANTHER #1 into a no-holds-barred adventure that will demonstrate why Black Panther is one of the most powerful heroes in the Marvel Universe.
This story looks to have all the political intrigue of the best episodes of THE WEST WING and HOMELAND, while continuing the trademark action and energy inherent to the Black Panther characters since his creation at the hands of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.
