Evan Narcisse presents Rise of the Black Panther Vol. 1
In conversation with Chris Jackson
Wine reception to follow
Greenlight is thrilled to host journalist Evan Narcisse as he presents his comics debut Rise of the Black Panther. This limited, six-part Marvel series, written as a prequel to Ta-Nehisi Coates’ Black Panther run and in collaboration with Coates, explores T’Challa’s first years as king of Wakanda. In Rise of the Black Panther, Narcisse tells the story of a young man still exploring the world, and the wondrous nation of technological marvels, which he is destined – but not ready – to rule. Beset by grief for his father, raised by a single mother, the legendary hero defends Wakanda for the first time – and begins the legacy that will make him an Avenger. Narcisse presents the first trade volume in his series with a reading and visual presentation of the comic and a conversation with Chris Jackson, publisher and editor-in-chief of One World. A wine reception follows to celebrate the book’s release.
