Further findings:
 

  • If a visit to the viewing platform of the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa at $55 is too expensive, you can switch to the world’s second tallest building – the 634 meter-high Tokyo Skytree, which costs just $18.

 

  • Madame Tussauds is a world-renowned wax museum. A visit to the exhibition in London will cost you $46 in admissions. Once inside, you can mingle among royals like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, among other wax replicas of the rich and famous.

 

  • Entrance to Buckingham Palace costs $31. However, a visit to the Bavarian castle, Neuschwanstein, reminiscent of childhood fairytales, is a cheaper alternative, with admission prices just $14.50.

 

  • The most expensive attractions are often the newest and have branches around the world. Harry Potter, Trolls, Marvel and One Piece, are films that now have their own remarkable exhibitions, public studios, and attractions that showcase their unique characters and props.

 

  • With attractions on the list, a sightseeing trip to New York City is the most expensive destination. Holidaymakers would be wise to prepare a solid budgeting plan long in advance.

 

  • The Colour Factory, a pop-up exhibition currently based in New York City, offers trendy photo motifs alongside a pricey admission of $37.80.

 

  • The new One World Trade Center has a viewing platform that offers spectacular views of Manhattan and Central Park. With an entrance fee of $34.80, it’s cheaper than both the Top of the Rock observation deck, at $39; and the Empire State Building, also at $39.

 

  • The admission price of Potala Palace, home of the head of Tibetan Buddhism, the Dalai Lama, is $29.70. Visiting the Pope is a more economical alternative, with admission to the Sistine Chapel, his official residence in the Vatican City, just $18.

WAKANDA FOREVER x MARVEL

The Black Panther’s Dora Milaje Meet The Marvel Universe in WAKANDA FOREVER!


Hugo and Nebula Award winner Nnedi Okorafor brings Wakanda’s most fearless warriors to Marvel!

 

After their scene-stealing theatrical debut in Marvel Studios’ Black Panther, Wakanda’s fiercest warriors are traveling outside of their country to fight new threats and new troubles, in an all-new story by award-winning science-fiction and fantasy author Nnedi Okorafor.

 

A Hugo and Nebula Award winner whose best-selling books include the Binti trilogy, Who Fears Death and Akaka Witch, Nnedi first brought her storytelling to Marvel in the digital comic series Black Panther: Long Live The King and in the Vernomverse anthology story “Blessing In Disguise.” With art by Alberto Jimenez Alqurquerque (Jean Grey), WAKANDA FOREVER: AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1 brings the Dora Milaje out of their vibranium city and into New York in the first of a three-part story when a Wakandan threat falls upon Manhattan – and they meet webslinger Peter Parker! The Dora Milaje’s adventures continue in WAKANDA FOREVER: X-MEN and WAKANDA FOREVER: AVENGERS in July and August.

 

Learn more about WAKANDA FOREVER #1 and view exclusive character design sketches from Alberto Jimenez Alburquerque in Okorafor’s interview with Vogue Magazine.

 

“I’m super excited about writing this storyline. Powerful disciplined African women with futuristic spears who faced their shortcomings and changed a nation? Oh heck yeah, I’m so there,” shared Okorafor. “Fans of the Dora Milaje can look forward to seeing them out in the world beyond T’Challa and the Wakandan throne’s shadow. They’ll get to see the Dora Milaje come into their own, while teaming up with the unexpected.”

 

“As millions of moviegoers now know (and as comic readers already knew!), the Dora Milaje are the absolute coolest. And the rest of the Marvel Universe is about to learn this too when Okoye, Ayo and Aneka leave Wakanda on an adventure that will see them team up with Spider-Man, the X-Men and the Avengers,” teased series editor Wil Moss. “Nnedi Okorafor and a talented team of artists will be telling one Dora Milaje story that runs through these three separate WAKANDA FOREVER one-shots. We’re lucky to have Nnedi on board for this — she’s an incredible novelist, and her recent BLACK PANTHER: LONG LIVE THE KING digital series proved that she’s a great comic book writer too. She’s come up with a crazy-tough problem for the Dora Milaje to solve — but if anyone can, it’s these crazy-tough women.”

 

Join the fearless trio of Okoye, Ayo and Aneka in all-new stories as they travel the globe to protect the country – for Wakanda!

MARVEL’S BLACK PANTHER #1

New creative teams. New series. New directions. New beginnings. It all kicks off this May with BLACK PANTHER #1!

“Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll be rolling out new beginnings for a few of our key franchises—new creative teams, new starting points, new storylines—all the big stuff that we’ve been building towards since LEGACY began,” said SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort. “This isn’t a clearing of the slate—while these new starts will kick off with new #1s, we’ll be maintaining the classic LEGACY issue counts as dual numbering on these titles as well. Oh, and don’t read anything into not seeing a character on the Jim Cheung piece…we can only squeeze so many characters onto there without killing poor Jim!”
