Ta-Nehisi Coates’ Run on Black Panther Ends with April’s Black Panther #25
April’s Black Panther #25 will mark the end of Ta-Nehisi Coates’ redefining work on Black Panther. Featuring art by Daniel Acuña and an epilogue drawn by Brian Stelfreeze, the previously announced issue will bring fans the triumphant end to the acclaimed “Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda” storyline. Since taking over the title in 2016, the National Book Award winner and New York Times Best-Selling author has transformed the Black Panther mythos. Now five years later, he departs, leaving the world of Wakanda forever changed and laying the groundwork for the next bold era of this iconic Marvel hero.
Throughout his run, Coates has taken the Black Panther to hell and back and expanded Wakanda into the distant stars. In his final issue, he’ll bring T’Challa full circle, back to the home he left behind…and the crown he has never fully accepted. The journey will conclude, but the legend remains.
