October's Black Panther is being billed as "the end of an era for the Black Panther" in Marvel's October solicitations. But what does it mean? Is the series ending? Is it getting a new creative team? Or just a new status quo for the character? And if it is a new status quo, does that mean a new number one as well? Marvel tends to play these things close to the vest in terms of solicits, because, after all, why reveal in a solicitation what you can reveal in an EX-X-XCLUSIVE somewhere like Entertainment Weekly? Either way, we'll keep an eye on Black Panther in the coming months for some news of exactly what this "end of an era" means.
Oh, and Killmonger is coming back as well. Check out the solicitation for Black Panther #17 below. View Marvel's full October solicitations here.
