    We have raved about this book for each of the 9 issues that we've been provided and its possible the most complex and layered aspects of the story are being handled with the most precision now. I am anxious about every character standing in this book and curious as to what possible outcomes await us. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Jim Bush Jan 3, 2017

    If you are someone who has read and liked the first eight issues of Black Panther, I think issue #9 will be pleasing. It covers all of the main groups of characters in the series, giving each opportunities to show what they are after. While there are moments of characters espousing political theory at each, there are also moments that reveal character, such as Tchalla bruskness and Shuris patience. Likewise, when Aneka runs off after having made a broadcast calling for people to turn against Tchalla, it shows that she is still a bit conflicted by what shes doing. So while it may not have as much action as previous installments of the series, there is still juicy material in Black Panther #9. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Leroy Dee Jan 8, 2017

    This series has mixed opinion from fans but I enjoy it because Coates doesn't spoonfeed his readers. Some people will read this story from page to page and completely miss the fact that the Midnight Angels break away from Tetu because of his army's record of sexual abuse on the women of the villages they conquered. The writer made be an acquired taste, but I'm so glad that Stelfreeze is back. His style is the closest thing Marvel has to Manga, and his style was sorely missed on the last few issues that featured heavy action. Read Full Review
