Nigeria’s Nnedi Okorafor to write storyline of Black Panther

Nigerian American writer, Nnedi Okorafor has announced that she will be writing a 3-issue storyline of Black Panther for Marvel.

Nnedi, 43, is a World Fantasy-, Hugo-, and Nebula Award-winning novelist.

Her first adult novel, Who Fears Death won the 2011 World Fantasy Award for Best Novel – was a 2011 Tiptree Honor Book and was nominated for the 2010 Nebula Award.

Her science fiction novella “Binti” won both the 2016 Nebula Award and 2016 Hugo Award for best novella and, was a finalist for a British Science Fiction Association Award (Best Short) and BooktubeSFF Award (Best Short Work). Oh my! we can go on and on.

Nendi’s short stories have been published in anthologies and magazines.

Andre Araujo and Chris O’Halloran will provide the art and colours for the Black Panther.

Black Panther: Long Live the King will be a biweekly comiXology exclusive, to be released in December on comiXology and Kindle as part of the comiXology Originals line of exclusive digital content, which is also available to members through the popular comiXology Unlimited.
This story will take place in the expansive world of Wakanda that Coates has built up in his ongoing series, and will follow T’Challa as he desperately tries to defend his home from a terrifying new threat.

ComiXology’s Chip Mosher says, “Like Ta-Nehisi Coates and Roxane Gay, Nnedi Okorafor brings her storytelling and world-building skills to Wakanda.”

Black Panther: Long Live the King will hit the digital screens on December 13.
