    This issue was chocked full of storylines all interwoven in a way that shows all things are connected and, I'm looking forward to the butterfly effect dial waves that this will send throughout the series as a whole. Gay serves up a lot on a small plate and a lesser writer would have had so many bumps in the road, through clunky dialogue and unnecessary exposition but, Gay is a pro and not a word, bubble or scene is wasted. The handling of the lesbian relationships between Ayo and Aneke is human, real and compassionate. In the short number of pages that showcase it, there's never a sense of putting on a show or pandering. The way she handles sexual assault is flawless, showcasing the shame and fear. This was a mostly female crew and what they pulled off I'm sure will inspire a legion of little girls who think they can't, to take up thief pens and pencils and do it too! This issue is a fearless, well thought out tribute to the comic gods and they are well pleased. Read Full Review

    Though readers in the loop know where this story ultimately ends, World of Wakanda #4 shows that there are many more tales to be told beyond the throne and the king who occupies it. Read Full Review

    The energy of the story is starting to drag. This is also the challenge of writing a story the ending of which I already know: you have to give me a reason to stay around for the telling. Read Full Review

    If you enjoy the main BLACK PANTHER title (as much as I do,especially) then WORLD OF WAKANDA (issue #4 included) is worth your time. Even then, it is still a tough sell as the title character is a background piece in this series. All that said, I've been enjoying the hell out of this book. It is the perfect supplement to the main title. It fleshes out the Midnight Angels in a way that, I feel, actually makes the core book more enjoyable. Not to mention it continues the emphasis on Wakandan culture that Ta-Nehisi Coates started in BLACK PANTHER. This development of Wakanda, is, in my opinion, one of the best aspects of Mr. Coates' run. Wakanda seems more like a real place than it has been in all the t years I've been reading about the Black Panther. SCORE: 7.7
