Jack's Yattering reviewed Black Panther #11 Feb 28, 2017
8.5

I love this book. Issue #11 of BLACK PANTHER is a fitting conclusion to a story that had been building since the first issue. While, sometimes, a litte over-written, this run on BLACK PANTHER has successfully combined superhero comics with politics and spiritualism. That's no easy feat. A defining run (so far) of my second favorite Marvel character (Iron Fist still holds the top spot) and my, more

JUSTICE LEAGUE (or, JLA, JLI etc.) is one of those books that I will stick with longer than average even if I'm not, particularly, enjoying it. It's an essential title...one of those books that are, automatically, a little more enjoyable just because I'm a fan of the character(s). I'm saying this because I want to explain why I continue to read JUSTICE LEAGUE even though I don't enjoy it. For more

If you want to see what I think of this issue I'll refer you to my review for issue #2...my opinion of MONSTERS UNLEASHED #3 is about the same. Neat,thoughtless fun with really nice art.

I'm a big Inhuman fan. Of the Inhumans, Karnak has long been a favorite (along with Black Bolt, of course). I'm also a big fan of Warren Ellis. So, taking this into account, KARNAK #6 should have been a home run of a hit for me. Unfortunately, long delays between issues killed the momentum of this series. Additionally, as a singular issue, KARNAK #6 could not support its own ideas wothout be more
