Every month we spend an evening scouring the pages of the latest issue of Previews and pick the titles we are looking forward to the most. This month it's the August issue which includes comics scheduled to ship in October 2018.

Jo S: With her brother King T’Challa travelling the multiverse, the Wakandan princess is being drawn away from the safe space of her scientific work to satisfy her duty as regent in his absence, a role which does not sit lightly on young shoulders. For me, Shuri is one of the best parts of the Black Panther stories; she’s fantastically intelligent but also calm, witty, capable, loyal, honest and independent and I'm genuinely excited to read a comic with her in the lead role. Artist Romero is producing some really interesting work on Immortal Hulk currently and feels like a good fit for this project, and writer Okorafor has written for Wakanda-based stories previously: her background in science fiction and Afrofuturism makes her the ideal person to give Shuri the right stuff to take on this new challenge.
