With the success of the Black Panther movie, it's not surprising the comic would continue through Marvel's next reboot  "fresh start". Yes, the title will be getting a new #1 issue like the other previously announced fresh starters, Avengers and Venom this May.

The new direction grows from the seeds sown in the Marvel Legacy  book from late last year with an intergalactic empire founded in T'Challa's name. The title will retain the current Black Panther writer, the award-winning Ta-Nehisi Coates joined by a new artist to the title, Daniel Acuña.

Here's how Coates describes the fresh start on the Panther:

"Black Panther fans should be excited because this is a true #1. It's a new story—with connections to the old story—but it's taking him into a different space...literally. And I think people will be excited about that" … "Black Panther #1 is a creative challenge for me. My first few books were more philosophical, and while that still rings true here, this is a fast-paced, high-octane story. And with Daniel Acuña's art, I think people are really going to feel the energy and intensity here. I wanted people to feel like this is a really fresh storyline, and I think we succeeded in that. It's meaty, it's different, and it's perfect for new readers just coming to the world of T'Challa and Black Panther."


Now Black Panther is no stranger to space, having recently been a part of the Ultimates and Ultimates2, but this Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda is new as editor Will Moss explains:

"I can’t emphasize enough how clean of an entry point this is for new readers. Readers are going to be learning about this mysterious ‘Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda’ right alongside T’Challa, so everyone is going to be on the same page."
