After making history as the first Marvel comic book series headed by women, “Black Panther: World of Wakanda” has been canceled.

Author Roxane Gay, who wrote issues 1-5, confirmed the news on Twitter Sunday, June 11, when asked by a fan.

Gay was among several Black writers behind the series, which focused on T’Challa’s Black women bodyguards — Dora Milaje — in the fictional African nation of Wakanda. Others included poet Yona Harvey, pop culture and political writer Rembert Browne, who replaced Gay in the sixth issue, and author/journalist Ta-Nehisi Coates.

Coates revealed in May that his spin-off series, “Black Panther & The Crew,” was canceled after six issues due to poor sales, The Verge reported.

A collection of the six issues of “Black Panther: World of Wakanda” will be available for purchase Wednesday, June 14.
