The series reveals the love story of Marvel's two preeminent black superheroes--Ororo (known as Storm of the X-Men) and T'Challa (The Black Panther).
"This is a truly groundbreaking story line that will draw in readers from all cultural backgrounds," says Joe Quesada, editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics. "Eric's unique vision for this series will thrill traditional comic fans of Storm and The Black Panther, as well as appeal to a whole new audience drawn towards Eric's remarkable storytelling ability."
Dickey's 12th novel, Chasing Destiny (Dutton Adult), will be released in April, and a stage play based on his novel Cheaters (Signet, 2000) is on a national tour this spring.
