Black Panther comics are free at Marvel to celebrate Black History Month

It’s also a nod to Black Panther’s historic Oscar nom

Black Panther Marvel

Marvel is going all out to celebrate both Black History Month and Black Panther’s historic Best Picture nomination at the upcoming Academy Awards.

In addition to free screenings at AMC theaters this week, a bundle of five Black Panther digital comics is also free at with the fitting promo code FOREVER.

The comics included in the bundle — Black Panther #1 (2005), Black Panther: World of Wakanda #1, Marvel’s Black Panther Prelude #1, Black Panther #1 (2018), and Shuri #1 — are a good introduction to the comic book version of Wakanda for fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That 2005 run introduced Shuri, a fan favorite character and apparent Vine fan; Marvel’s Black Panther Prelude takes place within the MCU.

Two of the comics in Marvel’s bundle, Black Panther (2005) and Shuri, were listed in our comic editor Susana Polo’s roundup of the best Black Panther comics to read after seeing the movie. That’s how you know it’s legit.

The bundle will be available through this Sunday, Feb. 10.
