Serial Box has announced that the upcoming audiobook from Marvel Comics will be narrated by an Emmy nominee.
Emmy-nominated actor William Jackson Harper (The Good Place, Midsommar) is on board to narrate the next Marvel story on premium reading and audio entertainment platform Serial Box featuring Black Panther. Marvel’s Black Panther: Sins of the King will launch in January 2021 and will be available exclusively on the Serial Box apps available on Google Play, Apple’s App Store, and through the Serial Box website.
In Marvel’s Black Panther: Sins of the King, T’Challa’s rule is threatened by an unexpected source: his father’s unintended resurrection. An adventure thriller rife with political intrigue, the story pits Black Panther against mistakes of the past and dark forces intent to take vengeance on Wakanda. The story will see the return of Okoye, Shuri, and cameos from Marvel favorites like Misty Knight and War Machine. Fans will also be introduced to never-before-seen characters and a new villain with the ability to resurrect the dead.
“I’ve long been a fan of sci-fi, but there’s always been a dearth of Black characters in those worlds, especially when brought to the screen. I remember seeing Black Panther in the theater and just being giddy about how many kids like me will have this be one of their first and formative sci-fi experiences, and how open they will be to seeing all kinds of people inhabiting these worlds as they grow older, which is why I am thrilled to be a part of this project,” said Harper.
Marvel’s Black Panther: Sins of the King will be Serial Box’s fourth installment in its collaboration with Marvel, with previous series based on Black Widow, Jessica Jones, and Thor. In addition to individual purchases, fans can now get access to all four Marvel series (with over 25 hours of entertainment) through Serial Box’s Marvel Pass program. Serial Box pairs strong storytelling by best-selling authors with high-quality audio, including a soundscape with narration, original music, and sound effects, to create a truly immersive story experience. Users can choose to read or listen, switching easily between the two and picking up where they left off in either format. First episodes are free to listen or read before paying for access to the rest of the series.
