After the box office dominance of the Black Panther movie. The magic continues, specifically Black Girl Magic with the announcement that the female warriors of Wakanda, the Dora Milaje, are getting their own comic book.
Marvel editor Wil Moss announced the Dora Milaje will be getting a series of one-shots with them teaming up with other Marvel superheroes, the first featuring Spider-Man. Writing the story will be Nnedi Okorafor with art by Alberto Alburquerque.
Okorafor said about the upcoming work, “The comic will be a chance to break the characters out and have them act on their own while ‘they’re not under the shadow of the throne,’ I’ll be focusing on the humanity of the characters, not just their strength in combat. You feel that you can relate to these characters, and feel they are real, not just iconic, but also human.”
The Dora Milaje will be seen next on film in Avengers: Infinity War alongside the Black Panther and all the Avengers. The film officially opens April 27, 2018 worldwide.
