I’m loving that following his appearance in Captain America: Civil War there’s a lot more mainstream interest in Black Panther.
To take advantage of this time in the spotlight, Marvel Comics has dubbed Black Panther this year’s breakout Marvel Super Hero — no small distinction — and will be producing a monthly video series highlighting what makes him so special.
Black Panther’s new comic, written by Ta-Nehisi Coates and drawn by Brian Stelfreeze, debuted as April’s best selling comic. That’s especially notable considering Black Panther beat out high-profile titles like Batman, Star Wars, Amazing Spider-Man and Deadpool.
Continuing the excitement surrounding Marvel’s celebrated Super Hero T’Challa, the Black Panther, the first episode of this groundbreaking multi-artist hip-hop-inspired video series samples the unmistakable beat of Run The Jewel’s ‘Oh My Darling.’
‘With the Black Panther capturing the hearts and minds of fans around the world, we are making an all-out press for their eyes and ears,” says Marvel Editor in Chief, Axel Alonso in a statement. ‘And who better to make our opening statement than the sonically groundbreaking duo, El-P and Killer Mike – A.K.A. Run the Jewels?’
The latest issue of Black Panther hit comic shelves on Wednesday. Want more Black Panther? Check out the iconic run by Christopher Priest available on Amazon.com.
