"This moment has been coming for a long time", she said.

Amid the cocktail of characters and cultures in Marvel's Black Panther movie, Dora Milaje, the all-female bodyguards of the king of fictional Wakanda, have won themselves enough fans to strike out on their own. Wakanda Forever: Amazing Spider-Man comes out in June. The illustrations for the new comic were done by Alberto Jiménez Alburquerque and Terry Dodson.

"I'm super excited about writing this storyline".

The new three-part series, which have the Dora Milaje headed to NY to investigate a threat to national security, was written by award-winning sci-fi and fantasy author Nnedi Okorafor, with illustrations by Alberto Jiménez Alburquerque and Terry Dodson. The comics appear to acknowledge the heightened increase in popularity of the Dora Milaje since the release of the Black Panther movie, where Okoye and Ayo were respectively played by Danai Gurira and Florence Kasumba. "Oh heck yeah, I'm so there", continued Okorafor. AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1 brings the Dora Milaje out of their vibranium city and into NY in the first of a three-part story when a Wakandan threat falls upon Manhattan - and they meet webslinger Peter Parker! "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".

Russian Observers Charge Fraud in Putin's Landslide Re-Election
The previous election record was set by Dmitry Medvedev in 2008, who won 52.5 million votes with just under 70 per cent turnout. Valentina Matviyenko, speaker of the upper house, hailed the victory as a moral one over the West.


Moss describes these three issues both as "one-shots" and a "three-part story".

"As millions of moviegoers now know (and as comic readers already knew!), the Dora Milaje are the absolute coolest".

This is not the first Wakanda-centric book to come along in recent years; Black Panther: World of Wakanda was cancelled after only six issues, five of which were written by writer and activist Roxane Gay. I can't wait to see what Okoye makes of NY! While she describes the story as primarily "an adventure narrative", she said that politics will also make their way into the story as the Dora Milaje get their chance to shine.
