Coverage on another, different run of the Black Panther

Like almost everyone else, I'm looking forward to the Black Panther film in February. But I have to say that I am just as excited about another, different run of the title. Writer Evan Narcisse is going to have a run on the early years of T'Challa, who's widely known now as Black Panther. I've followed Narcisse's commentary for some time now, so I'm intrigued, actually, excited to see his work in an alternative context.

How often do you get to read the artistic work of a knowledgeable black comic book critic? Rarely, if ever. And as an added bonus, he's writing on Black Panther?

The artwork is by Paul Renaud.

Here's a roundup of some of the coverage on the lead up to his debut. More to come, of course.
