Innovative Marvel Video Series Bridges Marvel Comics with Top Music Talent
Marvel Comics continues to present this year’s breakout Marvel Super Hero – the Black Panther – through a monthly video series that continues to link the world of comics and hip-hop blending animated comics along with commentary from Black Panther writer, Ta-Nehisi Coates. Additionally, “Black Panther: A Nation Under Our Feet – Part Eleven” incorporates the exclusive debut of the brand new track, “Don’t Front” from Dreamville recording artist, Bas.
Within Marvel Comics’ Black Panther, written by The Atlantic national correspondent and National Book Award winner, Ta-Nehisi Coates, “A Nation Under Our Feet” comes to a close. The dust settles, and peace comes to Wakanda once again. That is, if her political leaders can come to terms….T’Challa finds himself in the last place he ever expected: A republic.
Continuing the excitement surrounding Marvel’s celebrated Super Hero T’Challa, the Black Panther, the latest episode of this revolutionary multi-artist hip-hop-inspired video series samples a brand new track, “Don’t Front” from Dreamville recording artist, Bas.
“I love comics for the themes they deal with. Death, love, regret, sorrow etc. even superheroes deal with, and are often fueled by, human emotions – no one is exempt,” said Bas. “I think my music touches on a lot of those same themes. Much like comic books, my songs have story arcs, and within these stories is a deeper emotion that I try to relay. Much as the magic of comics lies equally in the artwork, the story and the emotion, I like my music to tell a story as much sonically as through my words.”
