This week we’re going back to 1976 to talk about The Panther vs The Klan from Don McGregor and Billy Graham’s Jungle Action. Over the course of a three issue storyline, Black Panther got a firsthand look at institutionalized racism in the American South. Too the eyes of the contemporary reader, it's clear that things haven’t changed as much as we might have hoped over the past forty years.
The Black Panther solo movie just added another acting heavyweight to a cast that already includes Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Forest Whitaker, Lupita Nyong’o, and more. Per Marvel’s announcement, Angela Bassett “who currently stars in American Horror Story, will play Ramonda, mother of T’Challa, aka Black Panther.”
The Black Panther has been around for decades, but hasn't exactly gotten a lot of collectibles compared to the other superheroes of the Marvel Universe. Thanks to his reignited pop culture relevance due to his new solo series and his appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, those tides are finally changing.
We've seen a number of new action figures for the Wakandan king, but the latest statues coming from a range of companies have really caught our attention. If anyone is deserving a fine art collectible, it's the Black Panther. That's why XM Studios' latest Marvel Comics creation caught our eye, even if we'll never be able to actually buy it.

After a month of anticipation, "Treehouse of Horror" binges, and spooky Twitter names, Halloween is finally upon us. This special day means so much to so many people, and one of the greatest joys it gives us is licensed costumes based on comic book properties.

We've rounded up some of the best comics-themed Halloween costumes from this year to provide you with some last minute inspiration for the big night.
