Marvel is launching a new Black Panther series by Academy Award-winning writer John Ridley and Guardians of the Galaxy artist Juann Cabal.
Academy Award-winning writer John Ridley (12 Years a Slave) and Marvel Stormbrearker artist Juann Cabal (Guardians of the Galaxy) are the creative team on a new Black Panther series.
“It’s a hybrid espionage-superhero thriller, but at its core, it’s a love story,” Ridley told The New York Times. “And I don’t mean just romantic love, although there’s some of that as well. It’s love between friends.
“We’re coming out of a summer where we saw Black people fighting for our rights, standing up, fighting in ways that we haven’t had to do in years,” Ridley added. “And it was really important to me after the year we had where we can have these conversations with Black people and we can use words like love and caring and hope and regret and all these really fundamental emotions that everybody has.”
