The graphic novel Black Panther: Long Live the King, written by Nnedi Okorafor and illustrated by André Lima Araújo will be released June 5th. It includes a 3-issue storyline and the Ngozi (as interim Black Panther) one-shot.
As the Black Panther and an Avenger, T’Challa has had to save the world time and again – but those duties pale in comparison to his responsibilities as king of Wakanda. As the nation rebuilds in the wake of revolution, T’Challa finds his people besieged by a massive monster tearing through the country, leaving a trail of destruction in its wake!
Nnedi Okorafor, PhD is a Nigerian-American international award-winning novelist of African-based science fiction, fantasy and magical realism for both children and adults. Her books take you on deep soulful journeys and touch on Afro-futurism. A good fit for the world of Wakanda and the future of the King.
