Deep in the heart of Africa is Wakanda, a technologically advanced civilization of great power and mystery. During the last ten centuries, Wakanda has stood alone as an unconquerable land inhabited by undefeatable warriors. Governing this nation is a lineage of warrior-kings possessing enhanced speed, strength and agility. Today, T’Challa is the latest in this famed family line, the great hero known worldwide as the Black Panther. Now, outsiders are once more assembling to invade Wakanda and plunder its riches. Leading this brutal assault is Klaw, a deadly assassin with the blood of T’Challa’s murdered father on his hands, who brings with him a powerful army of super-powered mercenaries. Even with Wakanda’s might and his own superhuman skills, can the Black Panther prevail against such a massive invading force.
Hollywood heavyweight Reginald Hudlin (House Party, Boomerang) and fan-favorite artist John Romita Jr. (Captain America, Amazing Spider-Man) team up to deliver a taut, politically charged thriller that Ain’t It Cool News has lauded as “better than watching a really great hour-long television drama.”
Collecting Black Panther (2005) #1-6, plus T’Challa’s historic first appearances from Fantastic Four (1961) #52-53.
