Creative Team: Ta-Nehisi Coates and Brian Stelfreeze

Publisher: Marvel

Premise: The first arc in said to be a “yearlong storyline,” and is titled “A Nation Under Our Feet,” a deliberate reference to the 2003 Steven Hahn book of the same name. The Marvel story is said to “find the hero dealing with a violent uprising in his country set off by a superhuman terrorist group called the People.” (According to ComicBookResources.com)

Why You Should Be Excited: Coates is inexperienced with writing comic books, which may scare some readers off, but his clear love for comic books, and in particular Black Panther makes me believe that this book is in safe hands.

Another reason why you should be excited for this book is because of the art of Brain Stelfreeze. He is undoubtedly one of my favourite artists in the industry, and it is rare to see him on such a high-profile project, so this is very exciting.

Even the writer of Marvel’s biggest new hero, Ms Marvel, G. Willow Wilson is clearly excited for this book too:

I’ve done a lot of posts about why you should be excited for other upcoming comic books; and whilst I am very excited for Daredevil, or Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, they pale in comparison to my excitement for this series. I truly believe this run will be legendary. I think anyone not reading this book when in debuts next spring will be making a horrible mistake.
