Media Release — Today, Marvel Comics continues to present this year’s breakout Marvel Super Hero – the Black Panther – 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, “Black Panther: A Nation Under Our Feet – Part Three” is launching the brand new track, “What You Came For” 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 Comics’ 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 — but can its monarch, one in a long line of Black Panthers, survive the necessary change?
Continuing the excitement surrounding Marvel’s celebrated Super Hero T’Challa, the Black Panther, the latest episode of this revolutionary multi-artist hip-hop-inspired video series samples a brand new track, “What You Came For”, by Jean Grae.
“Do 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,” exclaimed Jean Grae. “One, 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 of everyone involved in this. Now I’m crying.”
