First up is a story about T'Challa's grandfather Azzuri from writer Adam Serwer and artist Todd Harris, known for his work as a Marvel Studios storyboard artist.

Then, the future of Wakanda is explored in a story from writer/artist Juni Ba that flashes forward to the "last" Black Panther.

The third story from writer Karama Horne and artist Alitha E. Martinez focuses on T'Challa as he teams up with a "surprising ally" as he experiences a crisis of faith.

Then there's a Shuri-centric tale from writer Murewa Ayodele and artist Dotun Akanda, in which she'll face a "dangerous new foe."

In the last of the main stories, writer Sheena Howard and artist Marcus Williams will depict a Dora Milaje trainee's final test of skill, as she faces Okoye herself in one-on-one combat.

Here's a gallery of interior pages from the one-shot, along with variant covers by Ejiwa 'Edge' Ebenebe, Karen S. Darboe, and Afua Richardson:

Along with those five stories, Marvel promises that Marvel's Voices: Wakanda will include "all-new essays and interviews about all things Wakanda."

Along with Marvel's Voices: Wakanda Forever, Marvel will mark Black History Month with a set of variant covers for February titles, all of which will also include a backup story featuring the character depicted on the variant cover.

Before Marvel's Voices: Wakanda Forever is out, read the best Black Panther comics ever.

I've been Newsarama's resident Marvel Comics expert and general comic book historian since 2011. I've also been the on-site reporter at most major comic conventions such as Comic-Con International: San Diego, New York Comic Con, and C2E2. Outside of comic journalism, I am the artist of many weird pictures, and the guitarist of many heavy riffs. (They/Them)
