Contributed by BreAnna Bell

It’s no secret King T’Challa’s little sister was clearly the breakout star in this year’s Black Panther film. However, it seems Princess Shuri will soon be getting her own spin-off comic book series entitled Shuri.

According to Vibe, Leonardo Romero, an Eisner-nominated artist, will be working on the upcoming scenes and Afrofuturist and Nigerian-American author Nnedi Okorafor (author of Black Panther: Long Live the King) will write the script.

“[Shuri is] an African young woman of genius level intelligence who is obsessed with technology and has traveled spiritually so far into the past that she’s seen Wakanda before it was Wakanda. The Ancestors call her Ancient Future. And she’s super ambitious. What do I love about her? Alllll that and more,” Okorafor told Bustle.

The story will reportedly follow Shuri as she is tasked with the enormous responsibility of taking over the throne after her brother disappears while on a mission to space.

Shuri will reportedly be available in October 2018.
