Wakanda Forever … and a bunch of days before the next Black Panther comic

The publisher has informed retailers that the monthly series, originally planned to launch on August 4, has now been postponed to November 3. The second issue is now slated to arrive December 1.

Marvel Comics hasn't disclosed the reason for this new Black Panther series' delays, however, the previous volume also had routine schedule issues not including an 11-month hiatus during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the inaugural arc 'The Long Shadow,' T'Challa and his sister Shuri will fight to present a mysterious threat that is assassinating sleeper agents working for the Wakandan government.

"It's a hybrid espionage-Super Hero thriller, but at its core, it's a love story," Ridley told NYT. "And I don't mean just romantic love, although there's some of that as well. It's love between friends.

"We're coming out of a summer where we saw Black people fighting for our rights, standing up, fighting in ways that we haven't had to do in years," Ridley added. "And it was really important to me after the year we had where we can have these conversations with Black people and we can use words like love and caring and hope and regret and all these really fundamental emotions that everybody has."

This all comes ahead of the highly-anticipated film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever on July 8, 2022.
