Books for fans of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Books to read if you love Black Panther Wakanda Forever

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is more than just a comic book movie or the thirtieth film set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe; it is a cultural phenomenon. In the much-anticipated sequel to the 2018 global blockbuster, the people of Wakanda must fight to protect their home as they mourn the loss of their beloved King T’Challa (aka the Black Panther). If you're a new and existing fan of the franchise and you're looking for more Black Panther content, the Library has some recommendations you just might love!

Book Recommendations for Rings of Power Fans

Books to read if you love Lord of the Rings the Rings of Power

If you’re a fan of J. R. R. Tolkien’s classic books and (especially) Peter Jackson’s epic fantasy-adventure film trilogy The Lord of the Rings (from the early 2000s), you might just be watching the first two episodes of Amazon Prime Video’s newly released The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power this weekend. But with a weekly release schedule, you might be looking for fantasy book recommendations between premiere dates. The Library has you covered!

Book Recommendations for She-Hulk Fans

Books to read if you like She-Hulk

While Marvel’s newest Disney+ series, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, is faithful to its comic-book counterpart in many ways, it’s also a departure from “the formula.” Jennifer Walters, a.k.a. She-Hulk, is not like other Marvel heroes. Unlike her cousin, Bruce Banner, she doesn’t lose herself to the “monster.” And unlike fellow lawyer (and vigilante) Matt Murdock/Daredevil, she doesn’t have a secret identity. But maybe a female-led comedy/legal drama (albeit with a healthy dose of action and adventure) is just what the Doctor (Strange) ordered?

If you’re new to the Jade Giantess or just find yourself wanting more than an episode a week, the Library has you covered.

And now, he’s the star of the new summer blockbuster DC League of Super-Pets – in theatres July 29. If you like Super-Pets, then we have good news for you (and several book recommendations)!
