•  Eons ago, before Black Panthers, before Wakanda, before time itself...there were only the ORISHAS: Asali. Ogutemeli. Bast. The pantheon of gods and goddesses from which the world as we know it was manifested. But now, when Wakanda burns, they are silent. When she was flooded, they were silent.

    As a newcomer, BLACK PANTHER #13 really roped me into the world of T'Challa and Wakanda, giving me just enough to be intrigued and just enough to know what's going on. Read Full Review

    Black Panther baaaaack, with a new story arc, and a new love story, same as the old love story except with Coates behind the boards. So far, it's all off to a good start. Read Full Review

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - James Portis May 1, 2017

    This issue is a great jumping off point for old Black Panther fans but not the best for new ones. The old comic reader idea that you can just hop on a book at the beginning of a new arc really doesn't apply here. The story so far has been so intense that if you jump on now, youll be lost. I recommend picking up the trade paperbacks volumes 1-3 if you wish to catch up. The art is good and compliments the story well enough that it doesn't hurt it, but Brian Stelfreezes style is absent here and it worries me that hes left the title. Other than that, if you have been following this series, keep going, if not, back track in the trades it's definitely worth it. Read Full Review

    This issue kicks off the second season of Ta-Nehisi Cates' Black Panther run, and there's an immediate and palpable stylistic shift. The emphasis is less on politics and high-minded ideals and more on the supernatural side of Wakandan culture. Read Full Review
