Marvel’s Black Panther comics are free on Comixology right now



If you’re still reeling from the unexpected and tragic death of Chadwick Boseman, Comixology might have something to help.

The Amazon-owned platform, which is basically a Kindle Store for comic books, is running a seemingly unannounced and unadvertised sale in which all (or at the very least most) of Marvel’s Black Panther and Wakanda-related comics are available to purchase for free. 

I only caught wind of the sale after seeing a few people tweet about it. Then I found a Reddit post from the wee morning hours of Saturday running through a few of the series’ that are suddenly available for free. It appears to be all (or most) Marvel releases related to Wakanda.

So that’s all things Black Panther, including the fairly recent Rise of the Black Panther series from Evan Narcisse and Black Panther series from Ta-Nehisi Coates. The offering also includes Wakanda-related stories like Shuri, from writer Nnedi Okorafor and artist Leonardo Romero, which focuses on T’Challa’s sister (played in the movies by Letitia Wright).

There’s a lot to sift through, and nothing at all stopping you from adding everything that’s free to a shopping cart and making it your own. (As much as anyone can own an all-digital product, anyway.) Just note that Comixology’s online store maxes out shopping carts at 150 items, so you may need to pick these up in more than one load.

If you’re prefer more of a guided set of selections, the Reddit post I stumbled across runs through much of what’s available, if not everything. There’s also a helpful Twitter thread, the start of which is embedded below, which provides a bit more of a curated selection, with context.

What’s not clear is how long this promotion is running. It doesn’t appear to have been shared on Comixology’s Twitter feed, and there’s nothing in the platform’s archive of press releases either. Mashable reached out to Comixology for further information and I’ll update this story if I hear back.
