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