You can’t just beat Nnedi Okoroafor when it comes to writing sci-fi and comic books. After her comic book debut with the digital-first Black Panther comic series last year, the author is out with a new 5-issue series entitled Antar: The Black Knight.

The series is inspired by the legendary Arab poet and warrior, Antar, whose writings, which pre-date Islam, have survived.

She broke the news on Twitter and shared the cover for the first issue, illustrated by Eric Battle.

Here’s a synopsis via Comics Beat:

Honor through perseverance. Legacy through diversity. IDW is proud to present the epic story of one of history’s greatest warriors and finest poets: Antar, the Black Knight. A despised camel driver born of an African slave mother and an Arab Noble father, Antar proves that heroes are made by embracing who we are and dreaming about what we can become.

Antar: The Black Knight will be out on April 25.
