    While I wouldn't suggest this issue as an ideal jumping on point for new readers, this issue is going to stand up as the one that convinced me that Christopher Priest's new direction is going to be just as good, if not better than what we had been getting before the book underwent its fairly radical shift in direction. This issue does a wonderful job of developing its lead character, by establishing a fairly surprising relationship with T'Challa that one could almost classify as openly hostile. The book also does some nice work when it comes to developing "Blackjack" Cole into a character that one is eager to see again, and be concerned for when it becomes clear that he is targeted. I also like the idea that Kasper is not the smartest character in these pages, and that there are elements that are playing out that he looks completely unprepared to face. This is a wonderful issue, and I'm sorry I ever doubted this new direction. Read Full Review
