Marvel Entertainment is set to debut a fresh comic book series based on Black Panther’s sibling Shuri.
The brand new series – which will reportedly be titled simply “Shuri” – is to be available in October 2018, and will focus on T’Challa’s younger sister, who is next in line for the throne.
According to Bustle, the book will be written by award-winning author Nnedi Okorafor, who penned the digital comic series “Black Panther: Long Live the King” for Marvel, with art by Hawkeye artist Leonardo Romero.
The plot will revolve around Shuri’s evolution, at a time when T’Challa has moved into space to explore the Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda, leaving the actual nation without a leader and meaning Shuri must step up as monarch. JB
