The spinoff, which is eponymous with Shuri, focuses on her journey where she’s forced to either choose the comforts of her gadget-filled lab or the people of Wakanda—as Black Panther gets lost in a space mission leaving Wakandans without a king.

The official synopsis provided to Bustle says:

“Shuri is happiest in a lab, surrounded by gadgets of her own creation. She’d rather be testing gauntlets than throwing them. But a nation without a leader is a vulnerable one — and Shuri may have to choose between Wakanda’s welfare and her own.”

The comic comes from artist Leonardo Romero and Nigerian-American author Nnedi Okorafor, the latter of which recently had her novel, Who Fears Death, optioned for development by George R.R. Martin and HBO. Okorafor also previously contributed to Ta-Nehisi Coates’s comic Black Panther: Long Live The King as well as the Wakanda Forever series.
