Black Panther #1, written by The Atlantic national correspondent and National Book Award winner, Ta-Nehisi Coates, accompanied with outstanding art by Brian Stelfreeze, garnered international buzz and attention upon the announcement of this series in 2015, debuted as the best-selling comic for the month of April, and is on track to be one of the best-selling comics of 2016.

“I am honored to be a part of another cool project from Marvel Comics and this new video series is going to be a smash,” states Prodigy of Mobb Deep. “Black Panther has always been one of my favorite Marvel characters and the new series is destined to become a huge hit — Ta-Nehisi Coates really did his thing with this one!”
“Comics and music are two art forms that continually speak to one another, and with Ta-Nehisi and Brian Stelfreeze’s epic series flying off the shelves, we are doing just that,” says Axel Alonso, Marvel Editor In Chief. “It’s our honor to partner with the legendary Prodigy for this latest installment.”
