The Dora Milaje Link Up with Storm In the Second Issue of Their Spin-Off Penned by Nnedi Okorafor

The second issue of the three-part story drops this July.

Last month we got wind of the Dora Milaje getting their own storyline in Marvel's universe written by Nnedi Okorafor that's due to drop this June. The second issue gets even more adventurous as the women warriors link up with Storm and the X-Men in their next mission.


"In the second installment of WAKANDA FOREVER, out this July, the Wakanda warriors meet the X-Men—including the Black Panther's one true love, Storm," Bleeding Cool reports. "But when Okoye, Ayo and Aneka come up against deadly former Dora Milaje member Nakia, their mission turns to protecting their king—no matter what the cost."

X-MEN: WAKANDA FOREVER #1 (Part 2 of 3) will drop July 25, with art by Ray-Anthony Height and cover art by Terry Dodson. The third installment of Okorafor's comic will follow this August.

UPDATE 07/25/2018: Part 2 X-MEN: WAKANDA FOREVER #1 is here! Okorafor has shared the second cover with the world below:
