Marvel Is Releasing 'Black Panther #2' w/ A Run The Jewels-Inspired Cover
Looks like Marvel is keeping up with their hip-hop-inspired cover series. After releasing a full-fledged video recap of the newly rebooted Black Panther series with a score from rap game dynamic duo Run The Jewels, the comic book giant has unveiled the cover for issue two of Ta-Nehisi Coates’ massive undertaking, revealing an image wholly inspired by the jewel runners themselves with T’Challa and Shuri throwing up the now iconic RTJ signs on a Rahzahh-illustrated front cover.
Black Panther #2 is already out in both digital and physical formats, having been released on May 11th, but is already virtually impossible to find. This second-printing is due for a June 15th release, but good look getting your hands on it, as it will by flying off shelves just as quick. Still, we’re happy to see that the ever-expanding worlds of comics and hip-hop are continuing to merge in such bold and brilliant ways. All of which is to ask, what could Marvel possibly still have up its sleeve for us? We’ll just have to wait and see, but if you’re looking to get caught up with the Black Panther series, peep the recap, narrated by Coates and scored by Run The Jewels, down below.
