It’s partially to do with Marvel having one of their regular fin-de-quarter Amazon Kindle blowouts.
It’s also partially to do with the Black Panther movie getting stellar advance reviews.
It’s also also partially to do with chunks of the movie being based on Christopher Priest‘s reinvention of the Black Panther comic book for Marvel Knigjts with Mark Texeira, Joe Quesada, Vince Evans, Joe Juski, Mike Manley, Mark Bright and Sal Velluto in the late nineties/early noughties.
And a collection of the first 17 issues of that run are available on Kindle for less than the price of, I don’t know, a couple of copies of Batman.
Anyway, put it all together and that’s why Black Panther by Christopher Priest: The Complete Collection Vol. 1 is currently the best-selling graphic novel on Amazon.
And they can add one more sale to that, I just bought a copy over on Amazon.co.uk for a similar discount.
Here’s the blurb.
Black Panther reinvented as a sharp and witty political satire? Believe it! T’Challa is the man with the plan as Christopher Priest puts the emphasis on the Wakandan king’s reputation as the ultimate statesman, as seen through the eyes of the U.S. government’s Everett K. Ross. As the Panther investigates a murder in New York, Ross plays Devil’s Advocate in an encounter with Mephisto, and a new regime seizes control in Wakanda. When the truth behind the coup becomes clear, T’Challa finds himself an enemy of the state — and a major revelation threatens to destroy his relationship with the Avengers! Plus: Meet Queen Divine Justice — is she ready to join T’Challa’s deadly crew of female bodyguards, the Dora Milaje? Are they ready for her?
It’s also worth pointing out that the title is also part of the all-you-can-eat buffet streaming Kindle Unlimited/ComiXology Unlimited too.
