Now, those who want to dig into the larger stories that propelled Black Panther into the large force it is today. Shuri has become a wildly popular character in her own right with Marvel Rising and Letitia Wright’s performance in the film. Michael B. Jordan’s turn as Killmonger has also led people to examine the character in a new light. (IS THIS YOUR KING?!?!)

As my colleague Matt Aguilar wrote this morning after the sale got announced, “You'll find runs by Christopher Priest and Sal Velluto, Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Joe Sinnott, Don McGregor, Gene Colan, and Tom Palmer, and more, and in fact, you'll find several great runs from Priest with a number of artists, and all are worth checking out.”
“If you're looking for more recent iterations of the character, you can find more about Ta-Nehisi Coates' run on the character right here, who has introduced a number of unique concepts to the Black Panther characters and world as a whole,” he continued.
