The currently running series was launched in 2018. It was missing from Marvel’s schedules since March 2020, when the publisher’s entire comic book line was halted due to COVID-19 related reasons. While Marvel’s comic book publishing was all-but-restored by summer, several titles’ date was not revealed, which included Black Panther.

Series editor Wil Moss talked about the upcoming Black Panther No. 23. He said that they are so excited to bring Black Panther back to the stands and thanked all their readers for their patience. He promised that the last three issues will be worth the wait. The editor mentioned that writers Ta-Nehisi and Daniel Acuña have been building to this finale for over two years now, and the ensuing battle between the forces of T’Challa’s Wakanda and Emperor N’Jadaka’s Intergalactic Empire is going to knock the readers' socks off. Moss noted that the fans just have to wait to see who shows up to help defend Wakanda.
