New York, NY-March 16, 2018- After their scene-stealing theatrical debut in Marvel Studios' Black Panther, Wakanda's fiercest warriors are traveling outside of their country to fight new threats and new troubles, in an all-new story by award-winning science-fiction and fantasy author Nnedi Okorafor. "Oh heck yeah, I'm so there", continued Okorafor.
While the story will only span three issues, Marvel Editor Will Moss tweeted there is more in store for the Dora Milaje this summer.
Okoye, Ayo, and Aneka are going on a globe-trotting mission to protect the realm at any cost.
Wakanda Forever will have an adventure narrative, Okorafor told Vogue, and the first issue with Spider-Man will see the crew heading to NY to "investigate a threat to national security".
In Black Panther, they were charged with the responsibility of protecting the king but Marvel Comics has made a decision to portray them in a more independent light with a 3-part spin-off series written by Nigerian American afr0-futuristic writer Nnedi Okorafor. "I like to write the future", Okorafor said.

West Brom's seventh successive defeat equals their longest losing streak in the Premier League. A team that makes him feel like he is the main man, well that's because he is.
Black Panther's Dora Milaje are back-and this time it is with their own spin-off! "Now you're going to see the Dora Miljae for the first time as an independent entity; they're not under the shadow of the throne".
"As millions of moviegoers now know (and as comic readers already knew!), the Dora Milaje are the absolute coolest".
The first issue of the three comic books will be featured in Spider-Man: Wakanda Forever, which will come out in June, then followed by X-Men: Wakanda Forever in July. The illustrations for the new comic were done by Alberto Jiménez Alburquerque and Terry Dodson. While she describes the story as primarily "an adventure narrative", she said that politics will also make their way into the story as the Dora Milaje get their chance to shine.
Okorafor made her Marvel debut previous year as one of the high-profile writers assigned to Black Panther: Long Live The King - a lineup that also included Creed screenwriter Aaron Covington.
