Marvel's Black Panther: Sins of the King book cover



  • In the new Black Panther: Sins of the King, the Black Panther has a terrible secret. T’Challa strives for excellence—to be a fair and worthy king, a global citizen, an Avenger. But when an army of undead threatens Wakanda, the Black Panther turns to his long-lost father in the fight against his most lethal opponent yet—the demons of his past.


This serialized standalone Black Panther story was collaboratively co-created by multiple authors taking turns writing different chapters. They will discuss that process—and how they landed on the end result.


LIVE from NYPL is made possible by the support of Library patrons and friends, as well as by the continuing generosity of Celeste Bartos, Mahnaz Ispahani Bartos and Adam Bartos, and the Margaret and Herman Sokol Public Education Endowment Fund.
