The Rayven Choi books are being translated into Korean and Spanish, with upcoming releases in South Korea and Mexico. Plus, with upcoming tour stops planned for South Korea and South Africa, the comic series is well on its way to becoming an international hit, in the same vein as Black Panther.
Filmmaker, Shequeta Smith, is the mastermind behind the series. Asked to comment on her expectations for the Shero Universe tour, she said: "After seeing how well Marvel's Black Panther did internationally, I'm thrilled to begin the international leg of the Shero Universe Tour. It almost feels like the success of that film has provided a proverbial yellow brick road for Rayven Choi to follow across the pond."
