Art Notes

The nation of Wakanda is now protected by T’Challa, the new king in a long legacy of Black Panther warriors that protect their people. In the evening sky, Klaw hovers above Wakanda sonically empowering his insidiously lethal and ironic creation to attack our hero, Black Panther. The Dora Milaje, elite female warriors known as the adored ones, stand at the ready to protect the protector, T’Challa, from this new threat. Faced with treachery and danger and motivated by the memory of his father’s murder at the hands of this evil villain, Black Panther is ready to do battle with his archenemy and secure the safety of his people. Thomas Kinkade Studios proudly presents its new Marvel Comics collaboration: Black Panther.
