comiXology and Marvel have announced another miniseries as part of the comiXology Originals line — Black Panther: Long Live The King, a six-issue bi-weekly series written by Nnedi Okorafor and with art by Andre Araujo.
Black Panther follows two comiXology Originals/Marvel joints — Immortal Iron Fists (which my kid loves; we hope Pei is going to be ok!) by Kaare Andrews and Afu Chan, and Thor vs. Hulk: Champions of the Universe by Jeremy Whitley and Simone Buonfantino. Both series can bought off comiXology and are available to comiXology Unlimited subscribers.
“Marvel Comic’s Immortal Iron Fists and Thor vs. Hulk: Champions of the Universe have been topping the charts on comiXology,” said Chip Mosher, comiXology’s Head of Content & Senior Director of Communications, who curates the Originals line. “These digital exclusives, part of the ComiXology Originals line, continue to add value and interest to our comiXology Unlimited subscription service.”
Okorafor is an international award-winning novelist of African-based science fiction, fantasy and magical realism for both children and adults. Her books include Who Fears Death, Akata Witch and Zahrah the Windseeker, among others. She’s won the World Fantasy, Hugo, and Nebula Awards. Araujo has worked on several Marvel titles, including Inhumans and Spidey, as well as Generation Gone with Ales Kot for Image.
