The main antagonist in the block buster marvel movie, Black Panther, Killmonger will be getting his own miniseries coming in December.

The five-issue will showcase how he grew from a gifted but bitter child into one of the biggest threats Black Panther has ever faced. Writer, Bryan Edward Hill stated that the comic book idea was pitched to him by Marvel editor Wil Moss and he promised to do something new. “I didn’t want to just recap what we had heard in his mythology,” Bryan said. “I wanted to explore the choices and the failures that lead a person to dedicate their life to revenge, and how that happens. Because with Erik, I feel like it’s really a tragedy. It’s a story of a guy who was failed a lot by Wakanda in certain ways, by the people he met outside of Wakanda, by his own conscience in other ways, and I wanted to paint a portrait of that.”
