T’Challa is set to make his return to the Marvel Universe this summer as writer Eve L. Ewing (Monica Rambeau: Photon, Ironheart) and Marvel’s Stormbreaker artist Chris Allen take the reins on a brand new Black Panther ongoing series.
“I am so excited for people to see this character design! T’Challa is going to be looking really different. It’s much more edgy and kind of homespun. It’s not so sleek and slick. Not giving too much away from the story, he’s trying not to be seen. He’s kind of working incognito,” said Ewing. “What I can say, honestly, is that we will be seeing Wakanda in a way that we have not seen it ever before.”
Here’s a look at Chris ALlen’s design sheet for the revamped T’Challa as he’ll appear in the upcoming series…
Banished from the throne and a fugitive in his own homelands, T’Challa still can’t leave Wakanda without its sworn protector. A king without a crown, he finds new purpose lurking the streets and shadows of the Wakandan city that bears his father’s name, BIRNIN T’CHAKA. New direction, new villains, new creative team – get in on the ground floor of Marvel’s next smash hit!
Black Panther #1 will go on sale in June 2023.
