One of the more comical performances from the Black Panther movie was that of his sister, Shuri which saw Letitia Wright get her big break. The character shall now see further development at the hands of Nigerian-American writer, Nnedi Okoroafor as work on a book series kicks off.

The series expected to launch in October 2018, will see her take a place as the new leader of Wakanda. The official Marvel comics synopsis states “Shuri is the happiest in the lab, surrounded by gadgets of her own creation. She’d rather be testing gauntlets than throwing them. But a nation without a leader is a vulnerable one – and Shuri may have to choose between Wakanda’s welfare and her own.”

The development into a comic is one we’re all looking forward to as it establishes female representation in the super hero territory.
