If you had tuned into The Today Show on Friday, you would have seen a segment on Eve L. Ewing, the new writer of the Black Panther, as well as the debut of T’Challa’s new costume.
But hey, it’s 2023, and nothing’s ever lost to the whims of a network’s early morning TV schedule. You can check out the clip below:
Ewing talks about her approach to the character, his new costume and more. Speaking of the new costume, you can see it on the cover to Ewing’s first issue, drawn by Taurin Clarke:
“I am so excited for people to see this character design! T’Challa is going to be looking really different. It’s much more edgy and kind of homespun. It’s not so sleek and slick. Not giving too much away from the story, he’s trying not to be seen. He’s kind of working incognito,” Ewing told TODAY. “What I can say, honestly, is that we will be seeing Wakanda in a way that we have not seen it ever before.”
Marvel also shared more about Ewing and artist Chris Allen’s upcoming run:
Banished from the throne and a fugitive in his own homelands, T’Challa still can’t leave Wakanda without its sworn protector. A king without a crown, he finds new purpose lurking the streets and shadows of the Wakandan city that bears his father’s name, Birnin T’Chaka. New direction, new villains, new creative tea—get in on the ground floor of Marvel’s next smash hit!
