Issue written by Ta-Nehisi Coates.

Rap duo Run the Jewels has just scored their third honorary Marvel comic book cover.

Earlier this year, their now-iconic gun-and-fist logo was seen on both the Howard the Duck #2 and Deadpool #45 issues, with the Marvel characters, respectively, making the gesture.

Now, Black Panther #2, the second issue of an ongoing run written by Ta-Nehisi Coates, features the titular character and his sister Shuri striking the pose.

The collaboration was the idea of Marvel editor-in-chief Axel Alonso, who was inspired by the "Tag the Jewels" graffiti project and his son's love for the group.

The issue was released on May 11, and has already been announced as sold out on the distributor level. The second-printing cover is scheduled for release on June 15.
