Black Panther comic books suddenly free to download on Amazon’s Comixology

Most of the Black Panther comic books offered by Comixology are free to download, without any official announcement from the Amazon-owned service.

The free comic books, as spotted on Reddit, cover a variety of Black Panther series, including the King of Wakanda’s origins and his more recent adventures. Also going free are titles that focus on T’Challa’s sister Shuri and on villain Killmonger.

To find the comic books, log on to Comixology’s website, search for Black Panther, and click on Single Issues. This will return several pages of free titles, and while it may take a while to download everything, it will be worth it.

There is no announcement from Comixology regarding the free comic books, but it is most likely a tribute to Chadwick Boseman, who brought the Black Panther to life in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He passed away at 43 years old due to colon cancer.

Digital Trends has reached out to Comixology for confirmation on how long the Black Panther comics will stay free to download. We will update this article as soon as we hear back.

Long live the king

The death of Boseman, most popularly known for his role as the King of Wakanda but also for his work in Da 5 Bloods and 42, was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2016. He filmed several movies, including Black Panther, between surgeries and chemotherapy.

The final tweet by Boseman’s official Twitter account, which announced his passing, is the most-liked tweet ever in the history of the social network. Twitter also reinstated the #BlackPanther emoji, as Boseman’s fans organize watch parties for Black Panther.

This 85-inch Samsung 8K TV has an incredible $3,000 price cut this week
The Samsung QN900C Neo QLED 8K TV in a living room.

One of the best upgrades you can make to a home theater system is grabbing yourself a large and high-end TV, and for that, you may want to consider this massive 85-inch Samsung QN900C. Not only is it one of the best TVs on the market, but it even runs at an 8K resolution, so even if you have it up close, you won't notice the pixel density. Of course, it is an expensive piece of kit, and it usually goes for an eye-watering $8,000, although you can get it from Samsung directly for $5,000, which is a whopping $3,000 discount and probably one of your few chances to grab such a high-end TV for a lower price.

Why you should buy the 85-inch Samsung Neo QLED 8K QN900C
Like some of the other best QLED TVs, the Samsung QN900C is packed with a lot of excellent features, starting with the Neural Quantum Processor 8K, which can upscale your content up to 8K resolution. That's absolutely needed given that there essentially isn't any 8K content available on the market right now, so having an upscaler like this means it's compatible with your current and even older content, although the results will vary depending on the source material. It also comes with Neo Quantum HDR 8K, which is just Samsung's own high-end proprietary HDR, but at least it also supports HDR10+, so you can access pretty much all HDR content.

Our favorite headphones, Sony WH-1000XM5, are $70 off today

With how loud and crowded the world has gotten, having a solid pair of headphones to keep all the noise out can be really helpful. When it comes to active noise cancellation (ANC), our pick for the best headphones on the market is the Sony WH-1000XM5, which easily competes with the likes of the AirPods Max. That said, the XM5s can get really expensive, which is why we're happy to see this deal on Amazon that brings the price down to $329 from its original $400 price, saving you a solid $71, which may not seem like much, but it's a great amount for one of the best headphones you can grab.

Why you should buy the Sony WH-1000XM5
There is a lot to love about the Sony WH-1000XM5, and the excellent audio fidelity is one of them. Ironically enough, it has smaller drivers than the previous generation, and yet it still manages to upgrade the audio quality with a balanced overall sound and a surprisingly great bass response that makes it thumpy but doesn't muddy the sound. Realistically, you can pretty much listen to any genre of music you want on the XM5s, although it does slightly favor those who prefer a more neutral sound rather than something a bit more bass-heavy.
