    Black Panther has been, since its beginning, an incredibly solid comic, which is no surprise as it's being written by a Pulitzer Prize winning author. This issue is no exception. Read Full Review

    Storm Baaaaaaaaaack. An Ororo Da Gawddess focused issue leads to some cool story and character movements. Next issue looks grim. Mad grim. But we're here for it. Read Full Review

    Black Panther is one of the books I most look forward to every month. With a great writer and a solid stable of artists, this is one that should be on everyones pull list. Pick it up. Read Full Review

    Another Solid issue from Coates and he is getting into the groove of comics. My greatest joy of Coates bringing T'Challa and Storm back together is that it is a black writer helping a white company understand an audience. One thing we have not seen much of at Marvel over the years are strong black power couples. Ewing brought Blue Marvel and Spectrum together and Coates brought Storm and T'Challa back together and it is a welcome sight from Black comic readers. I also love Coates commitment to flushing out Wakanda, and this is especially true after the cancellation of World of Wakanda.

    Coates and Sprouse excel at creating a vivid backdrop of Wakanda. This is the most complex and layered Wakanda has been in years. We are setting more

    Storm and T'Challa are building something sweet together as they stop rains and fight bug-monsters. Ta-Nehisi Coates ennobles the script by building some emphatic structure into it; Chris Sprouse does excellent visual storytelling to keep the plot train on the rails. This issue could have ended up tiresome and repetitive if it weren't executed with such careful skill. Instead, it offers up nuanced meditations on worship, power, and demagogues - and a pretty kick-butt bug-monster fight, too.

    We finally get an issue that delivers on action well, something the series has been falling flat with quite a lot. I enjoy Storm's evolving understanding of her power and responsibility, portraying her god-like position as a privilege rather than a curse is a compelling new attitude.

    If I could give it a 0 I would. The fact that people are saying this is a great book makes me lose faith in todays comic readers. This is as bad as comics get. SJW, political, boring trash.
