Marvel reveal new details about "Wakanda Forever" miniseries
A few weeks back, it was announced that the Wakandan honor guard Dora Milaje would be getting their own miniseries this summer. The books, written by Nnedi Okorafor, will see the Black Panther's personal bodyguards team up with other Marvel heroes, such as Spider-Man and the X-Men. The initial release had details about their team-up with Spidey, and today Marvel have shed some light on their adventure with the X-Men. This time, Nnedi will be joined by artist Ray-Anthony Height on the appropriately titled X-Men: Wakanda Forever #1.
The Black Panther’s Dora Milaje Meet The X-Men in WAKANDA FOREVER!
The latest adventure brings together warriors and mutants!
New York, NY—April 9, 2018— After their scene-stealing theatrical debut in Marvel Studios’ Black Panther, Wakanda’s fiercest warriors are traveling outside of their country to fight new threats and new troubles, in an all-new comic book story by award-winning science-fiction and fantasy author Nnedi Okorafor!
The WAKANDA FOREVER story starts in June with Okoye, Ayo and Aneka teaming up with everyone’s favorite webslinger, Spider-Man! In the second installment of WAKANDA FOREVER, out this July, the Wakanda warriors meet the X-Men – including the Black Panther’s one true love, Storm! But when Okoye, Ayo and Aneka come up against deadly former Dora Milaje member Nakia, their mission turns to protecting their king – no matter what the cost…
“This story is a big Marvel-style adventure with the Dora Milaje front and center,” said editor Wil Moss. “Nnedi may be relatively new to writing comics, but she already has the voices of all these characters down cold – from Okoye to Nightcrawler. Don’t miss this one, folks!”
Featuring art by superstar creator Ray-Anthony Height (Amazing Spider-Man), X-MEN: WAKANDA FOREVER #1 hits comic shops this July! And be sure to follow the Dora Milaje as their adventures in the Marvel Universe continue this August with the third installment of Nnedi Okorafor’s epic story!
You put Nightcrawler and Colossus in something and I'm already throwing bills at it, but factor in the Dora Milaje? That's just a license to print money right there.
X-Men: Wakanda Forever #1 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on July 25.
