    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Dec 22, 2021

    Cabal does great work with the art in the issue. The visuals have a softer tone to them and that works really well in the moments that TChalla is talking to the agents and others. Read Full Review

    ARTArtist Juann Cabals art excels in many areas.  His characters expressions convey emotion and I love the way he draws TChalla, Shuri, and Omolola in costume, they look streamlined and intimidating. My favorite aspect of his art is how he draws the Wakandan technology.  The holograms and spheres that Shuri wields pop off the page, they truly look futuristic. I also love Cabals assassins outfits, including the masks they wear with the red squiggly lines and the huge weapons they wield.  They look like they walked right out of Squid Game, and I love the design.

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Dec 29, 2021

    Black Panther's new run continues and delves much deeper into the political spy thriller realm, allowing the cast to explore more & speak their minds about the actions of a king. There is such a cinematic quality to this series, as the art team infuses every page with powerful energy and unique look. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Dec 22, 2021

    Black Panther #2 is another fantastic issue. And that shouldn't be surprising. Ridley and the rest of the creative team have put out fantastic comics in the past so, it's not surprising they continue to. The series gives us a much more human look at T'Challa and a King who isn't perfect. It's superhero action that shows mistakes can be made and decisions can hurt others. It truly takes Black Panther from his cosmic adventures and brings him back to Earth. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Dec 27, 2021

    Black Panther #2explores matters of trust as King of Wakanda's actions continue to drive a wedge between him and his allies. The next issue will feature T'Challa's reunion with Storm. The duo used to be married, but I don't think absence has made Storm's heart grow fonder of her former husbandwe'll see next month. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Dec 22, 2021

    Bits and PiecesBlack Panther #2 improves on the first issue with a proper detective story and chase plot all rolled into one with cool Wakandan tech and energetic fight scenes. The art team pulled off an excellent-looking book, and the pacing is stellar. The one odd/down point is Ridley's insistence in making T'Challa paranoid to the point of being a fascist, especially in his attitude here towards the Avengers, and it seems wildly out of place.
