Marvel Comics has released a five-page preview of The Defenders #8, out next month from writer Matt Fraction and artist Jamie McKelvie.
The Defenders head to Wakanda, the home of the Black Panther, to tangle with The Black Cat in McKelvie's first issue of the critically-acclaimed series. Keep your eyes on this series in the near future, as Black Cat is rumored to be lined up for a role in the Amazing Spider-Man sequel, while both Black Panther and Dr. Strange movies are rumored to be in development. It's like The Defenders is a proving ground for Marvel's box office future--maybe Damon Lindelof will get that Iron Fist show after all!
Check out the description from Marvel, along with the preview images, below. Defenders #8 is on sale July 11, 2012.
