“In crazy and unprecedented times like we are living in right now, I think the Black Panther comic is more important than ever,” said Alexander. “Not just for young black comic book reading kids, but really for everyone of all races and ages. Comics have always been an escape and a window into different people’s ideas. In my humble opinion, Coates, his ideas, and these characters should be celebrated by everyone. The more examples and shades of blackness available, the better and I am honored to be a part of this.”
