Black Panther's Untold Story


The king of Wakanda, the Black Panther, is one of the world's greatest superheroes. What is his story? Where did he come from? How did he become the leader — and the hero — that leads a nation and inspires the world? Evan Narcisse, Ta-Nahisi Coates, and Paul Renaud explore the Black Panther's origins this January in Marvel Comics' Rise of the Black Panther #1 (NOV170915).

Before he was Wakanda's king, he was merely a boy and heir to the throne. Before he was the Black Panther, he was T'Challa. The assassination of his father, T'Chaka, serves as a brutal moment of reckoning for the isolated and secretive nation, and T'Challa will have to embrace the moment to bring Wakanda onto the world stage. Forced into the kingship and bestowed with the mantle of the Black Panther before he was ready, the young T'Challa must learn to play the game of politics to survive upon his throne and master his mind and body to become the Black Panther.

Evan Narcisse, the acclaimed tech and gaming journalist, pens his first comic book work with award-winning Black Panther writer Ta-Nahisi Coates. Joined by artist Paul Renaud, Rise of the Black Panther is a dramatic retelling of Black Panther's origins that adds depth to previous tellings, as focused on the world around T'Challa as on the character himself.

Timed for release prior to the long-awaited Black Panther film from Marvel Studios, Rise of the Black Panther is a powerful retelling of Black Panther's origins that no Marvel fan will want to miss!
