Watch A Chicago Comic Shop React To New Black Panther Comic

We visited a Chicago comic shop to get a feel for the buzz around the new Black Panther series, written by journalist and author Ta-Nehisi Coates.

The new Black Panther comic series hit store shelves Wednesday after much fanfare about its author and the illustrator — Ta-Nehisi Coates and Brian Stelfreeze. 

This newest series comes on the 50th anniversary of the Black Panther's introduction. We dropped by FIrst Aid Comics in Chicago's Hyde Park to get a sense of just how excited people were to get their hands on the first issue.
