    Word Of The Nerd - Josh Sykes Sep 27, 2019

    It continues to amaze me I may be the only guy harping that this book needs attention, and that should change. Coates and Acuna's story is rightfully fit for a king, and should make any and everyone's pull list this week. I was worried, with the X-Men comics getting a ton of attention, that we would see Storm pulled slowly from this book, but that hasn't been the case, thankfully. This issue succeeds in places I was sure it would fail, which is my mistake for doubting Mr. Coates. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Aaron Jones Sep 30, 2019

    Just when you thought you could celebrate, nope. King T'Challa is brooding again but for good reason, he has a tough decision coming up that only speaking to his mother in Djalia will fix. Not only are things not feeling right with T'Challa but literally some jet-fighters from the Empire jump to Wakanda Prime. The King and his crew (but not that crew) take them on as N'Jadaka makes some new friends among some old enemies. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Frantz Jerome Oct 24, 2019

    Never a second thought, Daniel Acua gives visual life to the Black Panther universe with a grounded flair that adds richness through Blackness. Deep care for the Black aesthetic has been a benchmark throughout the series, highlighted by the different hair textures and the many (many) shades of Black and Brown skin tones. These details show through on T'Challa's rough-hewn, battle-worn and noble face; in the visible, regal concern on Shuri's brow. Read Full Review

    The Symbiote, which is what I should just call it since it is obvious it doesnt have the body of NJadaka in it anymore. We saw last issue the Symbiote possessing an unsuspecting security guard in the capital city. Now it seems to have walked all the way to Chanagamires house. Read Full Review
