Marvel Studios honored Chadwick Boseman after the actor’s sudden passing. The star of Black Panther (2018) was only 43 when he lost a four-year battle with stage IV colon cancer. He kept his illness private until the very end, sometimes going to great lengths to do so, his closest family revealed in a statement.

Marvel opted to honor this tragically untimely departure with a new cover designed by its Director of Visual Development, Mr. Ryan Meinerding. The illustration immortalizes Boseman with a handful of depiction of his most famous role. Besides that, the tribute includes a drawing of Boseman’s widely publicized Commencement speech that he gave at his alma mater, the Washington, D.C.-based Howard University back in 2018.

Besides Mr. Meinerding, Black Panther director, Ryan Coogler, also did an homage to the late actor in the form of a touching public letter celebrating the South Carolina-born artist’s life and achievements. After debuting in the role of the iconic Black Panther as part of the Captain America: Civil War cast back in 2016, Mr. Boseman went on to star in the titular MCU blockbuster two years later.

The movie amassed seven Academy Awards nominations and won three. He returned for Avengers: Infinity War released that same year. His final reprisal of the role was filmed for the Oscar-nominated Avengers: Endgame released in 2019.
