A new era for the Black Panther starts here!

Written by MacArthur Genius and National Book Award winner Ta-Nehisi Coates (“Between the World and Me”) and illustrated by living legend Brian Stelfreeze, “A Nation Under Our Feet” is a story about dramatic upheaval in Wakanda and the Black Panther’s struggle to do right by his people as their ruler.

The indomitable will of Wakanda — the famed African nation known for its vast wealth, advanced technology, and warrior traditions — has long been reflected in the will of its monarchs, the Black Panthers.

But now the current Black Panther, T’Challa, finds that will tested by a superhuman terrorist group called the People that has sparked a violent uprising among the citizens of Wakanda. T’Challa knows the country must change to survive — the question is, will the Black Panther survive the change?

“Black Panther” #1 is scheduled to arrive at retailers in April 2016.

    I always loved this character for both the obvious and the not so obvious reasons. I’m looking forward to this book.

    It might make up for Marvels attempt to destroy the black family by having him and Storm break up….lol

    To me it always seemed that the marriage was one to gain headlines and news among the superhero set. The plot line never made very much sense, nor did it move the book, along it slowed the growth of the book and the heroes…

      I agree but there was so much to explore from this interracial couple. I say interracial because she is a mutant he is human. They are both African.

      They could have wrote about how other black Africans discriminated against her for being a mutant. BP could have been looked down upon by the X-Men for being human. There’s an entire story line on Bishop’s response.

      It brings up the issue is it harder to be a black man or a gay black man in our own community and what about in the rest of the world. Is it harder to be African or an African Mutant in the world.

      They took the easy safe way out and didn’t confront issues that exist in our own community.
