The Black Panther’s long, storied history will be examined in a new six-episode documentary series podcast, The History of Marvel Comics: Black Panther, debuting on SiriusXM on February 14.
The deep dive into the origins and transformation of T’Challa will be hosted by Shuri and Dear Martin writer Nic Stone, and will feature exclusive interviews with many of the writers and artists that have shaped the character such as Brian Stelfreeze, Christopher Priest, Don McGregor, Joe Quesada, John Ridley, John Romita Jr., Reginald Hudlin, Ta-Nehisi Coates, and more.
According to the official press release from Marvel, “The show explores some of Black Panther’s most pivotal moments including Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s 1966 debut of the character at the height of the Civil Rights Movement, his continued evolution through the birth of the Black Power Movement, his time with the Avengers and of course, the launching of Black Panther’s adventures.”
Nic Stone personally “…cant wait for fans to hear from the individuals who have spent almost 60 years shaping, expanding, and humanizing our beloved King of Wakanda and Black Panther, especially as his world continues to grow.”
The series will initially be available exclusively on the SXM App and Marvel Podcasts Unlimited on Apple Podcasts, but episodes will be available one week later on all major podcast platforms in the U.S.
