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.

"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.
