    It's hard to top some truly great issues that came before, but Black Panther #11 still delivers a satisfying end to the physical war it's promised since the first issue. Seeing the fallout and the fate of T'Challa in a Wakanda that must be rebuilt will be another fascinating war altogether. Read Full Review

    Black Panther #11 isn't entirely a failure, the individual pieces of the battle readers do get are wonderfully illustrated, and it's nice to see each of the major combatants show off just what they can do on an individual level. But in terms of showing a large battle between the heroes and enemy forces, the issue is a bit of a dud. Coates' weaknesses at a comic book writer are on display here, but as issue twelve looks to truly close out the arc, perhaps his deft handling of politics can close out the arc on a high note.

    This is the battle that this whole book was leading up to. The Wakandan Army vs. Tetu's forces. And it was...Disappointing. First what I did enjoy in the book was the dialogue and some of the panels illustrated by Sprouse was impressive, but the lack of scale in this battle is very underwhelming. This is supposed to be a WAR. A War supposed to have bodies on top of bodies, soldiers losing body parts, all out action, and lives are actually at stake here. I didn’t feel any of that. (It doesn’t have to be graphic or gruesome). We barely get that. Some of the actions scenes are good but I was expecting something along the lines of "Black Panther: Secret Invasion". In Black Panther #11 it’s not a war it’s a little battle. Remember the tanks and Wakandan airships in Black Panther #10? You see none of them in issue #11. For an all out war, I was expecting a couple of splash page, seeing the T'challa's armor on display doing amazing "force pushes", seeing Tetu turn into a giant humanoid plant attacking the golden city. I did like the ending when Black Panther and Shuri went to Necropolis but when did T’challa fix his relationship with his father. I thought T'chaka was still mad at T'challa. I just hope next issue can fix this.

    Battle could have been stretched out over the last 3 issues. Went back to the dialouge too fast. Art was on point as was the few glimpses of action. Still loved the arc but need more action down the stretch

    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,probably, my favorite BLACK PANTHER run in the last thirty years. SCORE: 8.6

    Good, but didn't live up to the slow build up.

    The last ten issues built up to this battle and what we get looks like the battle scenes in a video shot by highschoolers for a a school project. I don't think a shootout between a dozen people counts as a war, and the climax was rather flat. The situation felt much more dire and exciting in Doomwar, I recommend that Black Panther fans check that story out.
