Killmonger Is Getting His Own Solo Comic Series!

The success of Black Panther in theaters was one of the biggest surprises of the year. Characters like Okoye, Shuri, and M’Baku went from little-known characters to have their own merchandise made after them. The biggest surprise was Erik Killmonger. Michael B. Jordan went in and went well above what people thought he could do in that role. Hashtags like #KillmongerWasRight and #BuryMeInTheOcean flooded twitter for weeks. It was only a matter of time before Marvel capitalized on Killmonger’s popularity and gave him his own comic. That comic will be coming out on December 5th.

Wakanda Forever: Black Panther Review

One of the worst things you can do is place unwarranted expectations on a person, place, thing, or event. Leading up to the release of Marvel’s Black Panther, the expectations for the movie reached Star Wars-esq levels. Just to be clear, I don’t mean Revenge of the Sith, I’m talking Return of the Jedi levels of anticipation. Considering the lack of positive African American representation on the big and small screen it’s not hard to understand why African Americans have made it their mission to support this movie in full force. Black Panther managed to galvanize an entire people to spend their hard earn money months in advance for something that could very well have failed miserably. As a black man, I wanted to love this movie based on principle alone. As an objective writer on the interwebs, I know I have to put all of my cultural bias aside and view this movie not as a cultural movement but as just another piece of cinema. That’s said, Black Panther isn’t perfect… but it is the best movie Marvel Studios has ever released.
