The Comic Book Creator Credits Of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever came out last week. But with the news that here was no longer a final credit scene to the movie, fewer people stuck around to the Special Thanks section. Thankfully one Bleeding Cool spy managed to see which Marvel comic book creators get thanked for Bleeding Cool.
