    Black Panther Annual #1 proves the two most important features of the Black Panther character and the world of Wakanda. 1) There are still many amazing stories to be told about BP and the entire cast of characters in that world " some of whom have yet to even be created. And 2) Wakanda isn't and never was a utopia or some kind of dystopian commentary on the limitations of our trite utopian ideologies. Read Full Review

    The overall product is easily recommendable. Its a fun celebration of Black Panther by some of its greatest scribes accompanied by talented artists. Given Coatessdifferent take on Panther, it would likely confuse new readers. However, an experienced follower of TChalla will find a lot to enjoy. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Alexander Jones Feb 21, 2018

    I enjoyed the fact his story mixed up those elements and brought out those ideas but was disappointed in how sort of pedestrian it was. Something I wasn't disappointed in was how each artistic contribution brought something wholly unique and different here. Daniel Acuna's work was majestic and wonderful while Perkins was able to really dig into the finer aspects of Priest's script and Lashley brought out the regal elements of T'Challa in his contributions.

    How much Black Panther Annual #1 appeals to you as a reader may depend on how familiar you are with the different eras being referenced. Priest and Perkins' story is a great coda to a classic run, but not one that does much to stand on its own. Of the three, McGregor and Acuna's story does the best job of standing on its won two feet, while Hudlin and Lashley's tale reads like it needed a much larger platform to really breathe.

    I was really hoping for something to get my teeth into following the excellent Black Panther movie, as someone who has never paid too much attention to this character, I was interested in expanding my knowledge of the Black Panther and this issue just confused me. For Black Panther readers, this might be a perfect release, but this wasn't was for me. Read Full Review
