Fans of Temi Oh, Suyi Davies Okungbowa, and Black Panther! You’ll be thrilled to learn that these two authors are contributors to the forthcoming anthology Black Panther: Tales of Wakanda.
Oh and Okungbowa are among the eighteen contributors of the anthology, all authors from across the African diaspora. The anthology’s stories revolve around several characters from the Black Panther series. Here’s a summary of the book from its publisher, Titan Books:
T’Challa faces the gods of his parents. Vampires stalk Shuri and a Dora Milaje in voodoo-laced New Orleans. Erik Killmonger grapples with racism, Russian spies, and his own origins. Eighteen brand-new tales of Wakanda, its people, and its legacy.
The first mainstream superhero of African descent, the Black Panther has attracted readers of all races and colors who see in the King of Wakanda reflections of themselves. Storytellers from across the African Diaspora–some already literary legends, others who are rising stars–have created for this collection original works inspired by the world of the Panther and its inhabitants. With guest stars including Storm, Monica Rambeau, Namor, and Jericho Drumm, these are stories of yesterday and today, of science and magic, of faith and love.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
