    This is a great spin-off, and a great glimpse into a world I'm growing quite partial to. 4.8/5 Read Full Review

    Roxane Gay may have found her feet within the comics industry even faster than Coates, and with him in tow as consultant, World of Wakanda is wonderful as a companion piece to Coates' series, but works just as well as a standalone. Read Full Review

    I liked the first issue, but Gay and Martinez have really improved with this issue in both pacing and dramatic clarity. As a companion the main Black Panther series, this book provides backstory that, while not essential, provides a lot of depth and texture. But independently of that book, WoW succeeds as a tale of foot soldiers experiencing some of the more dramatic events in Marvel crossovers over the last few years, giving more weight and meaning to those as well. It will be interesting to see going forward how well Gay is able to make sure this story has enough impact as the plot gets closer to the current events of the main PB book. Ultimately, this is strong work that puts flesh on the characters of Ayo and Aneka. In so doing it providing a convincing argument that the Midnight Angels deserve more of the spotlight.

    I love the character development. This is very compressed though, the effects of Infinity are contained on one page, I would have liked to live through more of the hardships that the characters talk about, that would have elevated to emotions.
