BLACK PANTHER #13-15 (1978): Series ends

Kirby leaves, and Ed Hannigan and artist Jerry Bingham come on board. 

Immediately, they wrap all the standing plotlines, T’Challa leaves Africa ,and comes to New York (Jim Shooter was responsible for the plot, and he loved having all the heroes team up all the time) to finish out his book with The Avengers. 


Alongside The Avengers, Panther captures Klaw. But he escapes in the end.

Volume One was cancelled with issue #15 but the story didn’t end there. It continued in Marvel Premiere #51.  Hannigan and Bingham wrote three issues of that title featuring T’Challa, none of which were great, none of which were terrible. The final panels of this issue show us Windeagle, who will die in MP#51.

Here’s the letter page blurb announcing the ending of the book:
