The Dora Milaje vs. the X-Men in X-Men: Wakanda Forever from Nnedi Okorafor

Posted by April 9, 2018 Comment

Marvel is hoping that the love for the Dora Milaje in Black Panther spills out into the comic books — and is now putting them up against the X-Men in the second Wakanda Forever comic by Nnedi Okorafor and Alberto Jimenez Alburquerque, with this cover from Terry Dodson.

Here’s the PR:

The WAKANDA FOREVER story starts in June with Okoye, Ayo and Aneka teaming up with everyone’s favorite webslinger, Spider-Man! In the second installment of WAKANDA FOREVER, out this July, the Wakanda warriors meet the X-Men – including the Black Panther’s one true love, Storm! But when Okoye, Ayo and Aneka come up against deadly former Dora Milaje member Nakia, their mission turns to protecting their king – no matter what the cost…

“This story is a big Marvel-style adventure with the Dora Milaje front and center,” said editor Wil Moss. “Nnedi may be relatively new to writing comics, but she already has the voices of all these characters down cold – from Okoye to Nightcrawler. Don’t miss this one, folks!”

Featuring art by superstar creator Ray-Anthony Height (Amazing Spider-Man), X-MEN: WAKANDA FOREVER #1 hits comic shops this July! And be sure to follow the Dora Milaje as their adventures in the Marvel Universe continue this August with the third installment of Nnedi Okorafor’s epic story!
