Black Panther Prowls in April 2016

The day fast approaches! In April 2016, King T’Challa returns to the pages of his own ongoing series, BLACK PANTHER, written by Ta-Nehisi Coates with art by Brian Stelfreeze.

“Ta-Nehisi, Brian, colorist Laura Martin, letterer Joe Sabino, assistant editor Chris Robinson, and I have been working on this series for months already, so we’re happy to have a launch date as we’re all anxious to start getting this book out in front of people,” says series editor Wil Moss. “We may be biased, but we think it’s something pretty special!

“And what better way to celebrate the launch than with a variant cover by the legendary Alex Ross, sporting a logo designed by Rian Hughes? Alex’s art is known for making characters feel ‘real,’ which perfectly fits the tone of this series, as Ta-Nehisi and Brian are presenting a very ‘real’ take on Black Panther and Wakanda, one blended with the epic, unpredictable scope that the Marvel Universe is known for.

“So mark your calendars: King T’Challa returns in April!” [+]

From Soho Dives, Soho Divas - Rian Hughes (2013)

I utterly adore Rian Hughes’ work - his more graphic design work through to his glorious life drawings, particularly those presented in Soho Dives, Soho Divas published by Image. It’s one of my favourite art books - packed full of art inspired by London’s burlesque artistes. Glorious!
