The fan favorite female warriors of Wakanda are back but this time with their own series. The Dora Milaje of the hit Marvel film, Black Panther have created their own three-part comic book spin off written by Nigerian-American sci-fi writer Nnedi Okorafor.
“Typically when you see them, they’re with T’Challa, representing and protecting him,” Okorafor told Vogue. “Now you’re going to see the Dora Miljae for the first time as an independent entity; they’re not under the shadow of the throne.”
The first issue of the trilogy will be released in June. You will see the Dora Milaje in their all new adventures teaming up with Spider Man, X- Men and the Avengers in Wakanda Forever: Amazing Spider-Man, Wakanda Forever: X-Men and Wakanda Forever: Avengers.
“I’m super excited about writing this storyline. Powerful disciplined African women with futuristic spears who faced their shortcomings and changed a nation? Oh, heck yeah, I’m so there,”
The Dora Milaje army will not only be featured in this trilogy comic series but will also be featured in a movie starring Lupita Nyong’o and Viola Davis titled The Woman King based on the true story of the Dora Milaje.
Wakanda Forever: Amazing Spider-Man goes on sale June 27.
