Is this fan art or variant cover?

CvilleWakandan, I don't know for sure but I think it is one of those twelve variants Beware Of Geek mentioned. Like the aforementioned BoG, I too am glad there was a relaunch... a palette cleansing of sorts. I feel you Ezyo. Despite all past attempts at frustrating and demoralizing the fan base through constant efforts at deconstructing and re-imagining T'Challa and Wakanda, the Black Panther has transcended such encumbrances as proofed by his sensational film.


Has nothing to do with the new comic as far as I know, I was just feelin' it.

If anything, the film should encourage fans to speak up and demand more from BP writers, and to not accept the same tired stereotypes and tropes hampering BP and other black heroes. Writers should be going bigger, Better and pushing the envelope. Not using stereotypes and dysfunction. Now more then ever that should not and will not stand

the Good. Tchalla is kicking ass, and the art is beautiful. Hell how it started even looks kinda Cool in a sense. If this were Priest, Hudlin, Redjack, hell even Evans I would be very curious where this goes. The bad However, this is Coates, further using the Columbus route in space.

Making Wakandans conquers, and owners of slaves. This goes 1000% against what Wakanda is and as each season goes on and on, Coates is seemingly making Wakanda into a villainous face. First with rape and gender inequality and dysfunction, with Shuri telling the victims they should of accepted their fate and been raped and killed so Wakanda could stand, then finding out Wakanda drove out the denizens in chains and forced them to live elsewhere from their homes and now some Wakandans went out into deep space, colonized several galaxies, and created a giant empire filled with slaves...

I mean is this the end goal? Wakanda becoming a villainous nation in the BP solo?

You can't claim to be spiritually advanced then do the exact same thing the rest of the world did, and now on a grander scale in this season. Makes you look like massive hypocrites

Black Panther relaunches into space in this exclusive preview
by Oliver Sava

Wakanda has been the most advanced civilization on Earth for millennia, but the country’s reach is far greater than previously thought. Last year’s Marvel Legacy one-shot introduced the Intergalactic Empire Of Wakanda, and the ongoing Black Panther series is traveling to the stars for its latest relaunch. Writer Ta-Nehisi Coates has done great work exploring the politics and mythology of the African country in his Black Panther run, and he gets the opportunity to create an entirely new faction of Wakandans in this new series with artist Daniel Acuña. Coates’ first year on Black Panther had some pacing issues, and the writing struggled to balance the deeper thematic elements with exhilarating superhero action. That was fixed in Coates’ second year, which delivered thrills that energized the storytelling, and this exclusive preview of next week’s Black Panther #1 kicks off the new volume with force as T’Challa fights for his freedom in an alien mine.

The first page of this excerpt, which first appeared in Marvel Legacy with different text, immediately establishes the spectacular scale of Acuña’s artwork, and his design work shows how the spirit of Wakanda has been influenced by alien cultures in space. From there, the scope narrows considerably to introduce T’Challa’s new status quo: He might not have his royal authority anymore, but he still knows how to kick ass when he’s threatened. These pages are light on dialogue and heavy on mood, and they effectively signal a major shift for this series by putting T’Challa in a dark, cramped environment that he quickly escapes. The action moves with immense power and speed, and Acuna doesn’t lose any dynamism in the rich detail of his line work and coloring. There are a lot of questions in this preview about how T’Challa ended up in this situation, and readers curious about Black Panther comics after the movie have an easy jumping-on point that gives them something different than the film, but no less exciting.

Speculations:

This isn't 616 at all including Tchalla.
616 Tchalla is possessing the body of the Tchalla of that Universe.
This is all a dream with Tchalla unconscious.
This is 616 and 2000 years ago Wakanda figures out how to use the resurrection alter as a teleporter

Unfortunately This is the case for me as well. Which is a shame because the concept is great and could of been a massive new feat for T'Challa. Wakanda being advanced since day one rather then T'Challa doing it creates a void, this here could of filled it with a new, grander feat, but instead ot appears to be used to further tarnish Wakanda. Even if its not the main land, it's still using the Wakandan banner. The arts gorgeous though so it will at least look pretty.

From Evans Twitter.




Though he is still a novice he is pulling well from. Continuity, I think if he Also manages to throw in N'Yami motherships on top of the prowlers I'll be thoroughly pleased. I think Rise should stay and be the book that allows Evans to develop his skills as a Comic writer further. It also gives us fans positive showings of Tchalla and Wakanda that should of been happening since his MCU debut
