Book of Interest: Black Panther: Who is the Black Panther?

It's great that Black Panther is getting a novel, the character has always been a popular but his appearance in Captain America: Civil War brought in new fans. And next year's movie is sure to add even more fans.

I'm really interested in reading this Black Panther novel which is based on a comic book which surprisingly I have not read. The description sounds good and it really makes me want to read it. Since there's two versions of this story, I'm going to try to get both of them.

Book: Black Panther: Who is the Black Panther? by Jesse Holland

Publication: September 12, 2017


He's known as the Black Panther. His home is Wakanda. Welcome to T'Challa's world.

During the last ten centuries, as European colonial powers spread their guns and armies throughout the continent, the African nation of Wakanda stood alone as an unconquerable land inhabited by undefeatable warriors and filled with incredible technological advancements. T'Challa - the latest in a lineage of warrior-kings - is Wakanda's Black Panther, a hero endowed with enhanced speed, strength and agility - along with a suit made of the metal that secured his country's future: the indestructible Vibranium.

Now, outsiders have returned to plunder Wakanda's riches, including its store of the rare metal. Leading this brutal assault is Klaw, an assassin with the blood of T'Challa's father on his hands. Klaw brings with him a powerful army of super-powered mercenaries, all hell-bent on raining death and destruction on this pristine land. Even with Wakanda's might and his own superhuman skills, can the Black Panther prevail against such a massive invading force?

An all-new Black Panther novel based on Reginald Hudlin and John Romita Jr.'s groundbreaking 2005 tale!
