The world, understandably, just can’t get enough of Black Panther. The newest iteration of the Marvel franchise is coming in the form of a comic book centered around King T’Challa’s younger sister and badass in her own right, Shuri.

Award-winning science fiction and Afrofuturist author Nnedi Okorafor announced via Twitter on Tuesday that she will be authoring upcoming comic book series, titled after its heroine, Complex reports.

The series is a collaboration between Okorafor and Eisner Award-winning comic book artist Leonardo Romero. In the new adventure, the enterprising genius Shuri will assume the role of leading Wakanda while her brother is lost in an outer space expedition, according to Bustle.

“Without T’Challa around, Shuri will have to decide if she will forego her own passions in order to stand up for her nation,” Marvel Entertainment editor Jamie Frevele wrote in a press release.

Readers can expect the same wittiness and radiance that Letitia Wright brought to the big screen as Shuri in the record-breaking box office hit to shine through in the comics—and they are absolutely stoked about it.

Okorafor has written other Black Panther-centric comics, including 2017’s Black Panther: Long Live the King and the three-part 2018 Wakanda Forever series. Shuri is scheduled for an October release, according to Complex.

How to Save Images That Are in Microsoft Word and Google Doc Files

We’ve all been there: Someone sends you a document with images and you need to save one of the images. You right-click an image, but there’s no way to save it to your computer.

Luckily, whether you’re using Microsoft Office or Google Docs, there’s actually a nifty workaround that you can use to save any image in any document to your computer.

How to Save Images From a Google Document

So if you’ve tried the obvious: right-clicking on the image, you already know that doesn’t work. Instead, if you want to save an image in a Google Doc, here’s what you need to do:

  1. Go to File > Download as > Web Page (HTML).
  2. Open the ZIP file that has been saved to your computer.
  3. Inside that ZIP file, you’ll find a folder called Images, inside which you’ll find all the images that were inserted into that Google document.

How to Save Images From a Microsoft Word Document

In some version of Microsoft Word you can just right click an image and save it to your machine. If that’s not the case for the version you use, you can use a similar trick to extract images from a Word document.

  1. Open the document and go to File > Save as.
  2. From the dropdown menu for File Format, select Web page (.htm).
  3. Navigate to where you saved your file, and double-click to open it. It will open in your default browser.
  4. You can now right-click images in the document, and from the context menu select Save image as and save the image in the location of your choice.

This is just one of plenty of productivity tips for Microsoft Word and productivity tips for Google Docs that will make your life much easier.

You know what’s really fucking good?

Summoning the executive function to put new sheets on the bed, taking a long shower after sucky summer heat, exfoliating and moisturizing, putting on clean jammies and just launching yourself into bed like a cormorant diving after fish.

This is a good damn sensation and I hope you all get to feel something this nice soon.
