Black Panther #1 Gets An Artgerm Variant Of Shuri And It’s Awesome

by Hannah Means Shannon

As we’ve previously reported, a new Black Panther #1 lands in May 2018 from Marvel, and it will be written by Ta-Nehisi Coates and illustrated by Daniel Acuña.

Marvel have released artwork for an Artgerm variant cover featuring Wakanda’s Shuri.

Coates says:

Black Panther #1 is a creative challenge for me. My first few books were more philosophical, and while that still rings true here, this is a fast-paced, high-octane story. And with Daniel Acuña’s art, I think people are really going to feel the energy and intensity here. I wanted people to feel like this is a really fresh storyline, and I think we succeeded in that. It’s meaty, it’s different, and it’s perfect for new readers just coming to the world of T’Challa and Black Panther.

Here’s a look at the beautiful cover by Artgerm that’s an intricately executed as a royal (or even presidential?) portrait:

Look out for Black Panther #1 on May 23rd, 2018.
