Before the Black Panther...was the Coal Tiger!

As most Silver Age comics fans know, Marvel's Black Panther debuted in Fantastic Four #52 under this cover in 1966 (making him 45 years old this year!).
But, did you know he almost premiered under this cover...
...and that he almost debuted, with a vastly-different costume...
...under the name Coal Tiger?
It's TRUE, oh Faithful Fan! (As Stan Lee used to say)
Heck of a way to start off Black History Month, eh?

Tomorrow: our first serialized story posting...Lobo: the first Black comic character to have his own title! (and yes, we're doing both issues!)
