AN ATTEMPT TO bring diversity to comic books has failed.
Ta-Nehisi Coates, the celebrated public intellectual, faced a setback in his attempt to introduce racial diversity to the world of comic books when Marvel announced that Black Panther & The Crew, which Coates had been writing with Yona Harvey, would be canceled after six issues. Only two issues have been published thus far; The Verge, which first reported the news, said Coates cited “poor sales” as the reason for the cancellation.BTW, having seen the latest Capt. America sequel last year the Black Panther character was impressive. Question is why hasn't this attempt caught on, perhaps the wrong idea was used to bring attention to this character.
