The series, which launched its current run in 2018, had been absent from Marvel’s schedules since March this year, when the publisher’s entire comic book line was suspended for COVID-related reasons. While Marvel’s comic book publishing was all-but-restored by summer, a number of titles remained in limbo, with Black Panther — one of Marvel’s most critically acclaimed titles — arguably the most high-profile.
“We’re so excited to bring Black Panther back to the stands, and we thank all our readers for their patience,” series editor Wil Moss said in a statement provided by the publisher. “I promise, these last three issues will be worth the wait — Ta-Nehisi and Daniel have been building to this finale for over two years now, and the ensuing battle between the forces of T’Challa’s Wakanda and Emperor N’Jadaka’s Intergalactic Empire is going to knock your socks off! Just wait’ll you see who shows up to help defend Wakanda…”
Black Panther No. 23 will be available digitally and in comic book stores Feb. 2021.
