Nigeria Nnedi Okorafor to write standalone book on Black Panther `Shuri’

The 2009 relaunch of the Black Panther ongoing series by Hudlin and artist Ken Lashley saw Shuri take the throne and mantle of Black Panther following the Marvel crossover event Secret Invasion after T'Challa was rendered comatose after fighting the Spider-Man villain Morlun. How do you think she'll fare leading Wakanda? "Black Panther's sister is getting her own comic book series and it is happening so so soon". "Shuri is happiest in a lab, surrounded by gadgets of her own creation", reads the Marvel synopsis.

Her tweet confirmed the news already shared by Marvel Comics on their official website where they wrote, "SHURI will bring a domestic conflict to the princess's table. But a nation without a leader is a vulnerable one - and Shuri may have to choose between Wakanda's welfare and her own".

Okorafor previously wrote Black Panther: Long Live the King and is now penning an intriguing series that started last month with Amazing Spider-Man: Wakanda Forever #1 and will next jump to X-Men: Wakanda Forever #1, reportedly concluding with Avengers: Wakanda Forever #1.

Nnedi Okorafor is writing the series and Leonardo Romero in on art. The Ancestors call her Ancient Future. But if any player was the true break-out hit of Ryan Coogler's film it was Letitia Wright's Shuri - T'Challa's super-smart Q-like younger sister who kitted her big brother out with fancy gadgets, while poking fun at him at every opportunity. "All that and more", Okorafor said.

Speaking to Bustle, Okorafor couldn't hide her excitement.
