Black Panther MWF #517 Preview & BP MWF News

Black Panther TMWF #517 Preview
~~ Click on the above and below images for the preview ~~

Hello guys,

After Jefte Palo's guest artist issue of Black Panther #516, I am back teaming up with David Liss and wrapping up the first arc of Black Panther Man Without Fear with issues 517 and 518.
Issue 517 is out today (see the exclusive preview above) and 518 has been already delivered to editorial and it will be out a month from now. These two issues are without doubts my best work on this title yet: lots of fun action and lots of revelation by David Liss that will have you say "I didn't see that coming" :)

After 517 (out today) and 518 (out in May), Jefte Palo will be back for a 2-issue event that will see both Storm and Kraven the Hunter guesting on the title. These two issues, #519 & #520, will be both out in June.

I will be back on the book starting with issue 521 that will start a tie-in arc with the big MARVEL event FEAR ITSELF and will feature a new character I was lucky enough to be asked to design (cause it was lot of fun to design :)): AMERICAN PANTHER! (see above teaser released recently by MARVEL).
We will get to this in more details soon :) For now I hope you enjoy the teaser and - most of all - issue 517 in stores today :)

Love it when you are able to design--you have great vision! No offense to Mister Jefte, but I wish you were illustrating all of the upcoming issues, but perhaps his stint on BP will mean you are on Detective or even able to release creator-owned material. Or open up a spot on your commission list :)

Love the design and am going to sit down and take in issue 517 tonight after the kids are in bed. Thank you!

Another impressive job on this issue. I too wish you were a full-time illustrator on this series. I agree with JC on that I would love to see some more of your own creative material released. I still need to get my hands on a copy of Black Beetle. Keep up the great work I look forward to seeing any and all your work in the future.
