Marvel Studios Black Panther smashed box office records earlier this year, The film’s success has made it the perfect time for a fresh start in comics.
“A bold new direction for the Black Panther! For years, T’Challa has fought off invaders from his homeland, protecting Wakanda from everything from meddling governments to long-lost gods. Now, he will discover that Wakanda is much bigger than he ever dreamed…Across the vast Multiverse lies an empire founded in T’Challa’s name.” – Marvel.com
We have a new creative team working on the story, Ta-Nehisi Coates comes in to write the action packed adventure while Daniel Acuna draws the panther king.
Issue 1 gives us many surprises and hints towards the big screen characters. Names like M’Baku, Okoye and T’Challa are just a few familiar names that appear. All is not as it seems in this new intergalactic- spacey empire. The imperials, the miners or the nameless, the Askari, and the rebels are the four groups in the series.
T’Challa starts as a nameless miner and cannot remember his true identity. He sees visions of his wife, Storm, asking him to come back home. The rebels see T’Challa in action and start a riot in the vibranium mines. The once-wakandan king joins the rebels, and is now faced with the challenge of finding out who he is, and why he is in this strange new world.
Acuna does an awesome job with the art and Ta-Neshi leaves us with many questions and only a few answers. All will be explained as we are taken on a journey outside of the African nation and into an intergalactic empire!
