The Legacy of T’Challa Explored In New ‘Rise of the Black Panther’ Series

On the heels of yesterday’s Black Panther announcement it looks as if we’ll be getting a look at T’Challa’s journey set before the events of the ongoing series.  Announced earlier today, Rise of the Black Panther be written by Evan Narcisse along with Ta-Nehisi Coates with art from Paul Renaud so check out more info in the press release below:

This January, just ahead of the highly anticipated film, Marvel will reveal T’Challa’s journey to become king of Wakanda in a series co-written by io9 senior writer Evan Narcisse and Black Panther writer Ta-Nehisi Coates, along with artist Paul Renaud. Set in the world of Coates’ landmark Black Panther book, this new series will tell the story of Young T’Challa and his lineage, showing how the world learns about the wondrous nation of Wakanda for the first time.

This 6-issue run will also explore the reign of T’Chaka, the king whose death changed Wakanda’s history, and the life of T’Challa’s birth mother – someone T’Challa never had the chance to know. Narcisse will be making his comics debut with this series, and each issue will feature a painted cover by Black Panther artist Brian Stelfreeze.
