There's not many titles that could seemingly throw everything out the window, and yet deliver a new plot that was just as rewarding. Now yes there are elements that link this new Black Panther to what we had been getting previously, and the last page would seem to suggest that the ties are far stronger than it initially appeared. However, what makes this new arc so impressive is that Christopher Priest has taken a title that thrived on its complex plots, and turned it into a hard-boiled crime drama, but I still find this book to be one of the most rewarding reads out the stands. I also enjoy the fact that the new Black Panther is more prone to make mistakes than T'Challa, as we get the sense that the villain he's looking to take down is smarter than our hero. The book also does a pretty solid job of playing up the idea that Kasper isn't exactly looking to get involved in the life of a costumed crime-fighter, but rather putting on the costume is more a means to an end.
