    So far, Black Panther & The Crew is CSI: Harlem meets the super power of Black girl magic and they're doing a damn good job with the execution. Harlem is unveiling its own history of heroes from the Golden / Silver age of comics that we're seeing our present heroes discover and it makes for a truly original and unique story to take in.

    Overall, Black Panther and the Crew #2 excels from a storytelling perspective through writing and art. Elements coalesce in a manner which propels the plot and characters to a place of deeper meaning. However, the insertion of brief politics which have more dire bearing on reality is a mark on this issue in particular. I hope the story expands to address that point and looks at the nuances of it, but as it stands, it is not a favorable part of this comic. Im still invested in the Crew, but there are some ways where I expect better. Read Full Review

    When it comes to the story itself, this issue was somewhat frustrating with its pacing. But it's a good-looking book and the story has potential. Read Full Review

    There's SO much I like about this comic. The character's development, for example, and how it matches the political intensity of the story in a subtle way (or at least the most subtle way possible for a story like this one). But it's the presence of the Harlem that hits me most deeply. Misty says she rather take the bus to remember herself she lives in a city. The comic book, in its story and its art, really shows that they are living in a city and not - as most comics -, in a bunch of separated locations and headquarters. The slow-pacing of the story is at point, bringing us to the profound displacement of the characters. As far as I can tell, it's a masterpiece.

    I thought this issue was a big step up from the first issue. Very similar in tone to Black Panther, so if you like that book you'll probably ike this one. The art is really good.

    BLACK PANTHER & THE CREW #2 is a really good issue. Like its sister title, BLACK PANTHER, PB&TC is so much more than just a superhero comic...the setting(s), in this case the Harlem of the Marvel Universe, is so integral to the story it is, practically, a character unto itself. Too bad Marvel cancelled it, already. SCORE: 8
