    The art by Kev Walker is great and the visuals are what became the saving grace of a story that, if taken out of the arc itself, would not be particularly missed. Read Full Review

    Even though much of the series' action is slowed down for the sake of exposition, the plot is moved forward in a way that should be a great read. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Robert Reed Mar 4, 2019

    On its own, without context, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Kev Walker, and Stphane Paitreau have crafted an entertaining adventure with good worldbuilding and some fun, if predictable, twists that fit within the themes of the larger story. However, it seemed like the last issue was launching towards a more direct conflict with the Empire, and it's hard not to feel disappointed. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Frantz Jerome Mar 5, 2019

    This run on Black Panther has been a trip into a refined and realized vision of Afrofuturism. Ta-Nehesi Coates and Kev Walker are a seriously dope comic team. The aesthetics on display in Black Panther #8 alone have elevated this run above any of Marvel's previous attempts to normalize Blackness, in general, much less in the far-flung reaches of time. Great art, great writing " what more can you really ask for? The narrative of this Black Panther run makes me wonder what the throwback Star Wars would have felt like with more genuine diversity. Check this arc out, if you haven't already. Read Full Review
