Today, Marvel Comics continues to present this yearâ€™s breakout Marvel Super Hero â€“ the Black Panther â€“ through a monthly video series that continues to link the world of comics and hip-hop blending animated comics along with commentary from Black Panther writer, Ta-Nehisi Coates. Additionally, â€œBlack Panther: A Nation Under Our Feet â€“ Part Threeâ€ is launching the brand new track, â€œWhat You Came Forâ€ by Jean Grae.
This new video series is designed to present the world of Black Panther to a whole new audience and will offer fans a monthly recap of the best-selling comic book series prior to the latest issue being made available and on sale.
Within Marvel Comicsâ€™ Black Panther, written by The Atlantic national correspondent and National Book Award winner, Ta-Nehisi Coates, accompanied with outstanding art by Brian Stelfreeze, Black Panther confronts a dramatic upheaval in Wakanda that will make leading the African nation tougher than ever before! When a superhuman terrorist group calling itself The People sparks a violent uprising, the land famed for its incredible technology and proud warrior traditions will be thrown into turmoil. If Wakanda is to survive, it must adapt â€” but can its monarch, one in a long line of Black Panthers, survive the necessary change?
Continuing the excitement surrounding Marvelâ€™s celebrated Super Hero Tâ€™Challa, the Black Panther, the latest episode of this revolutionary multi-artist hip-hop-inspired video series samples a brand new track, â€œWhat You Came Forâ€, by Jean Grae.
â€œDo I want to submit a brand new song for Marvel’s Black Panther collaborative video series? Are you kidding? Probably one of the most exciting requests I’ve ever gotten,â€ exclaimed Jean Grae. â€œOne, collaborating with Marvel on anything is a dream filled with unicorns. Two, Black friggin’ Panther! Three, Ta-Nehisi is writing it. Four, everything about where we are as a people right now. It’s so important and needed. I’m so proud ofeveryone involved in this. ow I’m crying.â€
This new video series has already reached global proportion and will further emphasize how Marvel is the premiere name when it comes to story-telling, diverse character development, and now, musical integration.
