    Bottom Line: Coates delivers a masterfully plotted issue that serves up action reminiscent of the film while laying out the groundwork for the next major threat that's been simmering in the background for a while now. This is smart, fun expert level Afrofuturism happening here. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Robert Reed Apr 2, 2018

    That being said, this is an improvement over the previous issue, bolstered by a nice showdown between Black Panther and Klaw that show’s off the hero’s intelligence in addition to his physical might. Leornard Kirk and Laura Martin have made a wonderful battle that ebbs and flows, while the return of Okoye is more than welcome now that she has successfully stormed the cineplexes. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Mar 29, 2018

    Black Panther #171 is a much-needed and highly enjoyable crescendo to Avengers of the New World. It holds together well throughout, even if its later than it should have been. Kirk and Martin give it some solid, if at times flawed, visuals. This one earns a recommendation. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    Coates gives us what we've been waiting for and it's Klaw and Black Panther mano a mano. There are answers to the question of who has been pulling the strings all along and what this whole war was all about. We see who comes through the door and I'm surprised. I'm sure you will be.
