Black Panther, the warrior king of the futuristic fictional African country Wakanda, is starring in a new comic book series that is doing booming sales, and will be the first black hero to get a standalone film, in 2018. The new comic series -- written by acclaimed author Ta-Nehisi Coates, a leading voice on race issues in America -- debuted in April, and so far 330,000 copies of the first issue alone have been sold, according to Marvel.
