One of Marvel’s most iconic heroes gets an all-star take by the incredible Ta-Nehisi Coates and Brian Stelfreeze, and we’ve loved every second of this incredible run!

A new era begins for the Black Panther! MacArthur Genius and National Book Award-winning writer Ta-Nehisi Coates (Between the World and Me) takes the helm, confronting T’Challa with a dramatic upheaval in Wakanda that will make leading the African nation tougher than ever before.

When a superhuman terrorist group calling itself The People sparks a violent uprising, the land famed for its incredible technology and proud warrior traditions will be thrown into turmoil.

As suicide bombers terrorize the population, T’Challa struggles to unite his citizens, and a familiar villain steps out of the shadows.

If Wakanda is to survive, it must adapt – but can its monarch, one in a long line of Black Panthers, survive the necessary change?

One of the best BATMAN stories of all-time, and for good reason: this book set the stage for BATMAN for years to come!

SPAWN definitely holds its place as one of the most iconic comic book series of all-time. Not only is it one of the longest-running creator owned comics on the stands, but it also pretty much laid out the blueprint for what a non-Marvel / non-DC Comics superhero story could be!

Featuring remastered cover art from creator TODD McFARLANE, SPAWN: ORIGINS, VOL. 1 reprints the stories and artwork that laid the groundwork for the most successful independent comic book ever published, including the introduction Spawn himself, and a number of other memorable and menacing characters.
