In what we think is a beautiful tribute to the late Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman, all Black Panther comics will be available online free of charge thanks to ComiXology, an online comic book library! While it is not officially announced as a tribute to Boseman, we certainly feel that it is definitely a touching move.

The comics look back on the hero’s origins but also on his most recent adventures which came to life under the pen of Ta-Nehisi Coates.
