It’s our second of four sessions of Black Panther Book Club to read some of the stories that seem to be the biggest influences on Marvel’s Black Panther film, out next week.
In this installment, we follow the Black Panther through some rote Avengers adventures and then watch as he code-shifts to hang out with his fellow 1970s black Marvel heroes (and Iron Fist). Then we meet Erik Killmonger, back from the dead again and ready to usurp T’Challa’s reign.
