Marvel has announced that Ta-Nehisi Coates’ New York Times Bestselling five-year run on Black Panther is set to come to an end this April with the triumphant conclusion to the acclaimed ‘Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda’ storyline in the pages of Black Panther #25.
“Ta-Nehisi has come up with a truly special finale here, one that not only wraps up the current story of T’Challa’s attempt to stop Emperor N’Jadaka’s conquest of Wakanda, but also deals with elements that reach all the way back to the beginning of Ta-Nehisi’s run. And to that end, we’re so thrilled to have Brian Stelfreeze, the artist who helped launch this run, return to draw this issue’s epilogue,” said editor Wil Moss. “Black Panther #25 is an immensely satisfying conclusion, with twists you won’t see coming and repercussions that will be felt for years to come.”
Throughout his run, Coates has taken the Black Panther to hell and back and expanded Wakanda into the distant stars. In his final issue, he’ll bring T’Challa full circle, back to the home he left behind…and the crown he has never fully accepted. The journey will conclude, but the legend remains.
Black Panther #25 will go on sale in April 2021.
