Now this is F*!KING AWESOME!

World-of-Wakanda-by-Afua-Richardson-ce1e6So yea, it is hard to believe that anything else goes on in the world of geek during SDCC but the world is always turning baby! Marvel Comics announced a pretty kick-ass collaboration this week…

Bad Feminist herself, Roxane Gay will be joining forces with Ta-Nehisi Coates (Black Panther comic series) and poet Yona Harvey on a Black Panther spin-off series entitled, World of Wakanda!

The new series will directly tie in with Ta-Nehisi Coates’ ongoing Black Panther comic series. Here is how the spin-off was described:

…with Gay’s storyline focusing on Ayo and Aneka, two former members of the Black Panther’s bodyguard organization the Dora Milaje, while Harvey’s will center on Zenzi, the revolutionary who started the riot that opened Coates’ own series.

Ta-Nehisi Coates actually brought both Gay and Harvey to the attention of Marvel. During an interview with the New York Times, Gay had this to say about her new writing gig:

[It’s] the most bizarre thing I’ve ever done, and I mean that in the best possible way.

Gay and Harvey are the first female African-American writers for Marvel comics!

World of Wakanda will hit comic book shops in November! Until then catch up on the ongoing Black Panther series!
