The Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda Saga continues next month in Black Panther #23
New York, NY— January 8, 2021 — Ta-Nehisi Coates’ acclaimed run on BLACK PANTHER returns next month with BLACK PANTHER #23. 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. This daring, thought-provoking take on the Black Panther mythology also features surprising developments for supporting characters such as Shuri, Storm, and Black Panther’s greatest foe, Erik Killmonger. Get your first look at this pivotal chapter in Black Panther’s legacy in an all-new trailer, 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,” said 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…”
The future of Wakanda begins here! Don’t miss BLACK PANTHER #23 when it hits stands on February 24th!
