Black Panther will return next spring to the Marvel Universe. Today, it was revealed by the New York Times that national corespondent for The Atlantic and author, Ta-Nehisi Coates, will be writing this upcoming series. He will be joined by artist Brian Stelfreeze on the book.

Coates is a Marvel fan, which is apparent to his followers on Twitter. Coates credits a lot of who he is today to comics: “[it's] an intimate part of my childhood and, at this point, part of my adulthood. It was mostly through pop culture, through hip-hop, through Dungeons & Dragons and comic books that I acquired much of my vocabulary.”

2016 is already shaping to be a big year for the character as he will appear in May's Captain America: Civil War, played by Chadwick Boseman. This will eventually lead to a Black Panther solo film in 2018.

As of right now, there's no exact release date for the new series or any story details available, aside from its release in spring of 2016.

In addition, the hip-hop variant cover, also by Brian Stelfreeze, was also revealed. We'll keep you updated as more develops.

Black Panther and Dr. Strange are the Marvel books I'm gonna pick up. Finally I can read some Marvel. All DC has to do is get that Shazam solo to happen then I could be happy.

@kfabz-23: Yep. Totally agree. I don't understand what the hold up has been on Shazam series. What other books do you currently read?

I was really hoping this would be the book that Mark Waid, Chris Samnee and Matt Wilson were going to be reuniting for, which would have been a great. I am hopefully for this book though, considering Coates' has probably got the best wealth of knowledge if Marvel wants this to be more of a political book that really shows the connection of Africa with the rest of the world. Something I really enjoyed was seeing Paul Jenkins for the Inhumans on the unsuspecting human world in his Inhumans book, so maybe this will share some slight thematic qualities. Conversely, if I recall the DC Batwing, that I bring up for soul purpose of connecting the African heritage, did really bad sales wise during the launch of the New 52, so here's to hoping this long standing character finds greater success.

Also, I think I might get this since I thinned out my pull list and am going to be trade waiting most big titles like Spider-Man and Green Lantern.

Panther needs love, hopefully it'll be good. I wasn't overly impressed with the new Iron Fist series.

@the_stegman: why not keep it to what i said awhile back ??? He should now be changed to look like a heavy set jonah hill... see how much uproar that'll cause.

On the real though, i think i'll give it shot. He is a awesome character. I just won a 4 star black panther in contest of champions too !!

Im also glad they're using their already established other ethnic heroes as opposed of turning they're already prominent white heroes all the colors and sexes of the rainbow....

I look forward to this new title. Despite wanting the Hickman writing the title of the Black Panther. However I'm already glad he again had a title. I just hope que this writer doesn't make the character try to strangle beings as the Silver Surfer.

Thank you for tagging me! I need to look into this guy and see what else he has written but has he ever written a comic series before? I also hope they gave it to someone who has read black panther comics before.....Hopefully this will be good.

Dwayne Mcduffie stated that silver surfer allowed black panther to restrain him. T'challa never truly had surfer restrained and surfer could have broke out if he wanted to he just didn't because he wanted to know what T'challa was planning.

That T'Challa Jay-Z Black Album cover gave me goosebumps. I was already gonna be buying this series, but for Coates to be the one they hired for this has me even more excited than I was before. Good lord the spring couldn't get here any sooner.

I would really love a story that puts Wakanda against Latveria. That would be epic.
