Ta-Nehisi Coates and Daniel Acuña Return to ‘Black Panther’ after 11 Month Hiatus

Good things to come to those who wait, even if the wait lasts 11 months. Ta-Nehisi Coates and Daniel Acuña (and Ryan Bodenheim) return to T-Challa’s “Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda” storyline with Black Panther #23 this February.

Black Panther #23 is the beginning of the end for Coates as series writer. Black Panther was the very first comic book penned by the noted journalist and author, which began in 2016.

Series editor Wil Moss told the Hollywood Reporter that “We’re so excited to bring Black Panther back to the stands, and we thank all our readers for their patience” and promised that “…these last three issues will be worth the wait — Ta-Nehisi and Daniel have been building to this finale for over two years now, and the ensuing battle between the forces of T’Challa’s Wakanda and Emperor N’Jadaka’s Intergalactic Empire is going to knock your socks off! Just wait’ll you see who shows up to help defend Wakanda…”

Coates may have stayed away from finishing his run on Black Panther, but he has continued to write the latest Captain America series for Marvel (to the delight of critics and long-time fans).
