    COMICON - Scott Redmond Sep 14, 2022

    ‘Black Panther' turns the page and enters a new very strange chapter following the very tense dramatic thriller that opened this latest series for the former king of Wakanda. A new artistic creative team brings some interesting life to this series and brings great energy that helps this story sail along. Read Full Review

    Black Panther #9 is either a brilliant approach to social commentary or a happy accident from a writer whose completely out of ideas. Either way, the new arc starts off with a bang that will leave you scratching your head. Read Full Review

    Valiant Son does what so many people do when they overtly don't like something but don't want to be called out for it. They pretend like there is any world where they'd be okay with a satire of things they like. In this case, misogyny and colonialism. Just a quick look through Valiant Son's reviews, they're extremely biased towards any sort of progressive narrative. They are right that this is on the nose, but frankly, it's better that way. The Colonialist is a very creepy villain outside of any of the things it says, but that additional factor of being openly awful only adds to what is a really neat villain. I really hope the political-critique version of negging that Valiant Son is so adept at doesn't become normalized. It's very obnoxiou more

    Very much needed change of pace for this book, actually feels focused in T'challa ironically since it also plays like an Avengers issue... And actually good one.

    T'Challa speaks for the reader on p.7, when he says, "There is none of this about which I am feeling good at all."

    If Ridley wishes to write a story that is an allegory of European colonialism (with a side serving of fourth-rate sloganeering feminist critique - the female characters surrounding the antagonist being described as, " many beautiful objectifications, who are lovingly misogynized."), then I have no problem. It would be nice, however, if he could do it without being so horrendously obvious and on-the-nose. The antagonist is called, 'The Colonialist' and calls the four Avengers, 'Aryan King' (Thor); 'Jingo Commando' (Captain America); 'Commander Hottie' (Captain Marvel); and 'Negro Feline' (Black Panther). This is more

    This looks so racist. I can't support any of this
