One of the improbable issues to return out of Ta-Nehisi Coates’ current runs on Marvel’s Black Panther titles like The Crew has been seeing Ororo Munroe getting again to her roots in Harlem and past. Coates’ distinct voice for the weather-manipulating mutant is about to get a a lot bigger microphone with the launch of an all-new Storm solo collection set to be illustrated by Jen Bartel.
Coates alluded to an upcoming collaboration with Bartel over the weekend at New York Comedian Con by tweeting out a picture of one of many artist’s Storm illustrations. Whereas speaking to a reporter with the Philadelphia Inquirer, Coates confirmed the challenge, and Bartel seemingly gave the seal of approval with a tweet of her own.
It’s been three years since followers tried to convince Marvel to not cancel Storm’s final collection, which was tormented by flagging gross sales regardless of the character being considered one of Marvel’s most iconic. Since then, Storm’s hung out main the X-Males as they confronted extinction as soon as once more, briefly grew to become a member of Secret Wars’ team of Thors, and went undercover to show Hydra’s plans for gentrification in New York’s traditionally black neighborhoods.
We’ll replace with extra plot particulars for Coates and Bartel’s new Storm collection as soon as Marvel itself declares the information, but it surely’s protected to imagine that we will count on some actually superb issues.
