Celebrate The Strange & Sublime In Black Panther And The Agents Of Wakanda #1 First Look

by James Ferguson

Black Panther will soon be pulling double duty, not only as a member of the Avengers, but as the leader of the Agents of Wakanda in a new series beginning next month from Marvel Comics. Written by Jim Zub, illustrated by Lan Medina, and colored by Marcio Menyz, the comic spins out of the current Avengers title, following Black Panther’s hand-picked team as they fight everything from vampires and aliens to angry fish kings. Check out an early preview of the first issue below:

Writer Jim Zub has an introduction letter in Black Panther and the Agents of Wakanda #1 that gives us an idea of what to expect from the series. He says:

The Marvel Universe is a wonderfully warped creation, filled with crazy combinations and endless potential. I love playing in this sandbox, taking esoteric pieces from past stories and tilting them in a new direction or attaching new ideas to old engines and watching them roar to life. Black Panther and the Agents of Wakanda is a celebration of the strange and the sublime. It’s big action and big drama in the Mighty Marvel Manner.

This team is a pretty odd assortment that’s sure to lead to some fun clashes of personalities. You have General Okoye, Gorilla-Man, Ka-Zar, and Wasp. I can’t imagine what a lunch with all of them would be like.

Black Panther and the Agents of Wakanda’s first arc is six issues long, featuring three missions, each two chapters in length. They’re designed to be new-reader friendly so anyone can jump in and get up to speed pretty quickly.
Black Panther and the Agents of Wakanda #1 is set for release on September 18th, 2019.
