Marvel has partnered with Amazon and Comixology to make over 200 issues of Black Panther comics available to read for free. This comes following the recent, unexpected passing of actor Chadwick Boseman, who played the character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Boseman passed away at the age of 43 after losing a long battle to colon cancer.
By way of tribute, Marvel Comics is opening up the vaults and has made a treasure trove of Black Panther titles from over the years available to read.

Black Panther was created by the legendary duo of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. After making his initial appearance in the pages of Fantastic Four in 1966, T’Challa went on to star in various solo series over the years. Black Panther was the first black superhero in mainstream comics, making him a landmark creation.
The character gained new levels of mainstream popularity following Boseman’s first portrayal of T’Challa in Captain America: Civil War. Following the release of Black Panther in 2018, which grossed more than $1.3 billion at the box office and was nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars, the hero became a massive part of the pop culture landscape.
Marvel is currently focused on honoring Boseman’s legacy. Allowing fans to delve into Black Panther’s rich history for free is one heck of a way to do that.
