Marvel writer and National Book Award winner Ta-Nehisi Coates made waves last year when they rekindled The Black Panther. A lurid comic book originally published in 1966, Black Panther centers on T’Challa, the leader of a futuristic African country called Wakanda, who governs by day and fights crime by night as his alter-ego, the Black Panther.
To build off the success of the 2015 edition—it debuted as the best selling comic for the month of April—Marvel and Coates are at it again, but this time with a monthly video series that merges the comic's vivid imagery with Coates' narration. For the inaugural video, Marvel infused the comic with music from Run the Jewels, because it sounds and looks totally badass. Watch it above.
The video premiere comes in conjunction with Black Panther's debut in Marvel's Captain America: Civil War, which has been raking it in at the box office. The second installment of the Coates-Marvel-collaboration, Black Panther #2, is available digitally through the comic retailer's online store and at brick and mortar locations everywhere.
