Nnedi Okorafor will work closely with Eisner-nominated artist Leonardo Romero to bring the Shuri comics to life.
While the record setting success of Marvel's Black Panther earlier this year can be attributed to all kinds of Black excellence, no one can deny that T'Challa's wise cracking/genius sister, Shuri (superbly played by Letitia Wright) stole numerous scenes she was in.
In terms of Wakandan lore, it appears the new series will ask Shuri to step up right as T'Challa steps off, elevating her into the Earthbound leadership role that her big brother leaves vacant while he blasts off to explore the Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda. What do I love about her? Either way, a solo comics run suggests a confidence on Marvel's part in Shuri's longevity, so expect that to be reflected in Black Panther 2 and beyond.
Okorafor previously wrote Black Panther: Long Live the King and is now penning an intriguing series that started last month with Amazing Spider-Man: Wakanda Forever #1 and will next jump to X-Men: Wakanda Forever #1, reportedly concluding with Avengers: Wakanda Forever #1. "Alllll that and more", Okorafor tells Bustle via email. Shuri is next in line, so you know what that means.

Behold: A Massive Jeff Goldblum Statue Has Appeared in London
On Wednesday a huge statue of a the Jurassic Park actor appeared on the banks of the River Thames by London's Tower Bridge. The statue of Goldblum is almost 10 feet tall, 23 feet long and weighs in at just over 330 pounds, according to CNET .
From the official Marvel description of Shuri, she's T'Challa's half sister, the daughter of King T'Chaka and Queen Ramonda.
Okorafor described Shuri to Bustle as "a character in the Marvel Universe who really sings to me", saying that Shuri's genius-level insights have helped her travel "spiritually so far into the past that she's seen Wakanda before it was Wakanda".
When will you be able to dig into this dopeness?
Shuri's sarcasm and high-tech inventions made her one of the main new characters in the film. According to the report, the comics series will focus on "Shuri's journey in the face of a tragic event".
