The New York Public Library has teamed up with Serial Box, the publisher of Marvel’s Black Panther: Sins of the King, to offer free access to this brand new e-book series. The books will be available via the Library’s e-reader app, SimplyE (which allows New Yorkers to apply for and receive digital library cards, then browse, borrow, and read over 300,000 books on their iOS and Android devices).
Marvel’s Black Panther: Sins of the King features multiple Black Avengers such as War Machine and Misty Knight, introduces never-before-seen characters, and sets T’Challa up against a new villain with the ability to resurrect the dead. The series is produced and published by Serial Box, which brings together award-winning and best-selling writers to create Serial Box Originals as well as new stories around some of fandoms’ most popular characters.
The New York Public Library has teamed up with Serial Box to bring this content for free for the first time and exclusively to NYPL cardholders. The Library has worked with Serial Box to ensure there are enough copies in SimplyE to meet demand and with minimal wait times. As part of the work with Serial Box, the Library will offer a free virtual event on February 25 featuring several of the authors involved in the series.
The program, part of the Library’s LIVE From NYPL series, will be a talk moderated by New York Times best-selling author Nic Stone with authors NAACP Image Award winner Tananarive Due, New York Times best-selling writer and NAACP Image Award winner Steven Barnes, and novelist and screenwriter Geoffrey Thorne focused on how they joined forces to collaboratively co-create a new chapter in the Black Panther universe.
