Black Panther may be set to hit the silver screen, but, he got his start in print back in the 70s with Marvel Comics.

And while Hollywood has finally caught wind of this compelling character, comic book fans are well-versed in the man named Erik Killmonger.

The crew over at Little Shop of Comics on Park Avenue in Downtown Scotch Plains is psyched… and stocked for the movie’s arrival.

“It’s about to happen,” they posted on social media, “Black Panther the movie. Now on the wall, the first appearance of Killmonger!”

Little Shop of Comics has an extensive collection of back issues and historically significant issues on display.
