Marvel & ComiXology Announce New Black Panther ComiXology Original Series

For Immediate Release

The Next Exclusive ComiXology Originals Digital Series 

Available today exclusively on comiXology and Kindle for $2.99 & 
free to comiXology Unlimited subscribers

New York, NYDecember 13, 2017 Marvel Entertainment and comiXology, Amazon’s premier digital comic shopping & reading service, debut the next exclusive comiXology Originals digital comic series Black Panther: Long Live The King, a 6-issue bi-weekly series written by Nnedi Okorafor, winner of the World Fantasy, Hugo, and Nebula Awards (Binti, Who Fears Death), and illustrated by Andre Araujo (Spidey, The Wicked + Divine).

Black Panther is on sale now for $2.99 on comiXology and Kindle as part of the comiXology Originals line of exclusive digital content and available to current subscribers of the popular comiXology Unlimited service. New subscribers to comiXology Unlimited can also enjoy it for free as part of their 30-day free trial. Black Panther joins The Immortal Iron Fists and Thor Vs. Hulk: Champions of the Universe, as well as the recently announced The Avengers with more exclusive Marvel series to be announced. 

“I had a lot of questions about Wakanda, so I brought the lens deep into it,” says Nnedi Okorafor. “You'll see the Black Panther interacting with tech-hacking village kids, vibranium-affected wildlife, and off-grid communities in Wakanda known as "mute zones". Not only is this a deeply personal story about T'Challa, you'll also see a side of the African country of Wakanda that no one's seen before. Oh and there's a mysterious monster in the countryside causing problems for everyone.” 

A perfect entry point for new fans and longtime readers alike, Black Panther: Long Live The King is an adventure set in the world of Ta-Nehisi Coates’ landmark Black Panther run and told in the Mighty Marvel Manner!  As the Black Panther and an Avenger, T’Challa has had to save the world time and again but those duties pale in comparison to his responsibilities as king of Wakanda. As the nation rebuilds in the wake of revolution, T’Challa finds his people besieged by a massive monster tearing through the country, leaving a trail of destruction in its wake!

“Marvel Comic’s Immortal Iron Fists and Thor vs. Hulk: Champions of the Universehave been topping the charts on comiXology,” said Chip Mosher, comiXology’s Head of Content & Senior Director of Communications. “These digital exclusives, part of the ComiXology Originals line, continue to add value and interest to our comiXology Unlimited subscription service.”

Fans across the globe have been attracted to Marvel’s amazing characters through top-grossing movies, critically-acclaimed TV series, and ground-breaking new publishing series that have driven titles like Guardians of the Galaxy, Daredevil, and Black Panther to new heights, alongside perennial favorites like Amazing Spider-Man and Avengers.  

This past spring, Marvel Comics joined comiXology Unlimited, giving fans the ability to read over 10,000 titles including thousands of Marvel Comics single issues and collections as part of their comiXology Unlimited membership, featuring Super Heroes like The Avengers, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Black Panther, Iron Fist, Guardians of the Galaxy and more.
