The death of Chadwick Boseman still echoes loudly in the superhero world. So much so that, when his death was reported through Twitter, the El Sol medium reported that a Guinness Record was given as the tweet with the most “likes” in the history of the social network.
In this same sense, there are still some unknowns about how his character will continue in the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Qué Ver website mentions that "the plans" they had for the Wakanda superhero were changed, so for the sequel that was stipulated, the company must make decisions to explain his absence.
However, the fact that the hero known as "Black Panther" may disappear from the cinema does not mean that he does not have a huge place in the world of comics. So much so that, to pay tribute to him, the specialized medium Genbeta revealed that, officially, "hundreds of free comics" of Black Panther were put on Comixology. Let's see, then, how to take advantage of this situation and how to get started in the comics of this hero.
Free Black Panther Comics at Comixology
First of all, we must tell you what Comixology consists of. The Homo Digital website mentions that it is "the Netflix of comics", in the sense that it is a platform where you can find a large number of titles to enjoy, obviously, through payment.
It is an Amazon company, so to acquire some of these products, you will need an account there. In addition, it has applications for iOS and Android, so you can watch the comics digitally from any device. However, on this occasion, you will be able to remember or learn the stories of the Wakanda superhero for free.
Despite the fact that there are series from different brands, the Gizmodo website mentions that Marvel decided to include its huge catalog in 2017 on this platform. Therefore, it offers you a "separate" price or a subscription model, although it is something optional in the case of the Black Panther character.
Black Panther comics do not require a subscription, although it will be necessary to have an Amazon account. When you enter the Comixology website, you will be able to navigate between the different options to add the stories that appear for $ 0 to the cart, that is, at no cost, so you will be able to see it on your different devices.
Tónica's specialized website mentions that the character was created in 1966 by Jack Kirby and Stan Lee, trying to represent a hero who could be born in Africa, causing many people to identify with him. Thus, the stories of the fictional nation of Wakanda, a technological vanguard hidden in the African jungles, are known.
If you don't know how to delve into the vast world of Marvel comics, you could be overwhelmed. In this case, available titles from authors such as Cristopher Priest and Sal Velluto, Jack Kirby and Joe Sinnott, Gene Colan and Tom Palmer or Shuri and Killmonger, among others, were added. Now, surely you want to know where to start to know its history.
In this sense, the first appearance of the hero known as T'Challa in the Marvel printed universe occurred in number 52 of Fantastic Four, marking an era as the first black superhero in history. Therefore, the website of El Intransigente completes that, in this case, we can find the different series, from periods between 1977-1979, 1988, 1998-2003, 2005-2008, 2008-2010, 2010-2012, and 2016- 2018.
Some of the character's most iconic series can also be found for free. Among them, World of Wakanda (2016-2017), And the Crew (2017), Long Live the King (2017-2018), Black Panther vs Deadpool (2018) or Rise of (2018). It should also be added that the stories of Killmonger (the villain of Black Panther) and Shuri (the hero's sister) will be free of charge, the latter being, according to the website of The Republic of Peru, the one that could take the legacy of the actor within the UCM.
Therefore, it may be a good time for you to delve into the vast world of Marvel comics, reading them in chronological order or in any way you want, taking advantage of these free stories of one of the most charismatic characters in the franchise.
