"This moment has been coming for a long time", said Okorafor, speaking about the Dora Milaje taking center stage. In the first issue, written by Okorafor with art by Alberto Jimenez Alburquerque, the Dora catch wind of a Wakandan threat causing trouble in NY before leaping into action-with or without the Black Panther. The comic will see Okoye, Ayo, and Aneka team-up with the Wallcrawler.

Wakanda Forever will have an adventure narrative, Okorafor told Vogue, and the first issue with Spider-Man will see the crew heading to NY to "investigate a threat to national security". "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". We'll catch up with Okoye in Avengers: Infinity War April 27, but a new comic book set to release in June offers a deeper look at The Dora Milaje... and one of Marvel's most popular heroes.

"I'm super excited about writing this storyline. Oh heck yeah, I'm so there", Okorafor told Vogue, which initially broke the news of the new series.

The Dora Milaje, Wakanda's warrior women and protectors of T'Challa's throne, will star in an upcoming miniseries with Marvel's flagship character, Spider-Man.

The Dora Milaje were the standout characters in filmmaker Ryan Coogler's Black Panther movie, which last week topped the domestic box office for the fourth consecutive weekend and has already made more than $1 billion globally. "Nnedi Okorafor and a talented team of artists will be telling one Dora Milaje story that runs through these three separate WAKANDA FOREVER one-shots. And the rest of the Marvel Universe is about to learn this too when Okoye, Ayo and Aneka leave Wakanda on an adventure that will see them team up with Spider-Man, the X-Men and the Avengers", teased series editor Wil Moss.

Marvel is "absolutely" making a sequel to 'Black Panther.' Obviously. "She's come up with a crazy-tough problem for the Dora Milaje to solve - but if anyone can, it's these crazy-tough women".

A Hugo and Nebula award-winning author, Okorafor previously took readers to Wakanda in Marvel's Black Panther: Long Live the King, which debuted previous year as a digital-first series.
