T'challa's sister SHURI gets her own book (again)

Following the record-melting success of the BLACK PANTHER movie this year, Marvel is smartly rolling out a new series starring the Wakandan Royal Family's tech genius, Shuri.
SHURI will bring a domestic conflict to the princess's table -- while she is the most at home in her lab, working to keep her country at the forefront of science and technology, Wakanda is missing its leader. Without T'Challa around, Shuri will have to decide if she will forego her own passions in order to stand up for her nation.

One of the things I was hoping for when Disney bought Marvel was that they would learn how to sell comics to women and girls.  Creating series using the already-existing roster of female characters that Marvel already has is a top priority.  Shuri has stepped out of the supporting cast role before, even taking up the mantle of the Black Panther is T'challa's absence in Deadliest of the Species, Power, and Klaws of the Panther.  My impression is that they will treat that as ancient history to tell a streamlined version of Shuri that is built to capitalize on the new fans of the character reeled in by the successful movie's long reach.

SHURI is being penned by award-winning Nigerian-American author Nnedi Okorafor (Who Fears Death, Black Panther: Long Live the King, Wakanda Forever), with art by Eisner-nominated artist Leonardo Romero (Captain America, Hawkeye, Immortal Hulk).  All I could find was preview sketches:

I expect a lot more info about SHURI to come out at San Diego Comicon, so I will let you know what I find out.

Samax Amen is a professional Content Developer, Illustrator and Cartoonist. He is the artist of many great comics you never heard of like Herman Heed, Champion of Children, The Brother and The World As You Know It. He even writes and draws his own comics, like Dare: The Adventures of Darius Davidson, Spontaneous, and Manchild when he gets around to it. Because making comics is hard and stuff, he started GhettoManga as a blog in 2006 and as a print magazine in 2008.
