• When the Black Panther makes it known that he too was an associate of Ezra Miller, the late Harlem community pillar and social activist who died in police custody, the case finds new life.
•  Was there more to Miller than he let on? Was his activism a front for something larger?
•  One thing's for certain: What's happening in Harlem is not new. It stretches back decades. The secret super hero history of the Marvel Universe continues!

    Anyway, everyone should be reading Black Panther & The Crew. If you havent been on board since the beginning, I cant blame you for wanting to wait for the trade, since the hangman has already called for this series. That being said, with a brilliant script, a smart story, and great art, I cant help but recommend this book. It tells an important story and centers on a great cast of characters. Read Full Review

    After a slower buildup, Black Panther & the Crew turns the corner in a major way. The reveal of a larger web behind Ezra's murder is well done, as is T'Challa's arrival into the story. Ta-Nehisi Coates seems in his element crafting this mystery, and the art by Guice and Chater is a stellar fit for this genre. It's unfortunate that this series is already cancelled, but if the series can maintain this quality in the back half, it will be a solid story and addition to the mythos of the heroes involved.

    Series continues to be strong despite lack of attention.

    Storm and T'Challa team up to discover the enemy lurking behind this story while Misty, in the final pages, gets Luke Cage into action. 'Bout time! The art and ideas in this series continue to be absolutely top notch, which leaves the storytelling pace as the flaw bringing this series down. There's fascinating stuff in both the current incarnation of the Crew and their slowly-revealed links to Ezra's 50s Crusade. It unfolds at such a snail's pace, though! Beyond *responding* to what Jonathan Hickman did with T'Challa in his Avengers run, Ta-Nehisi Coates has pinched his glacial "this will be really important a year later maybe" plotting style. That tool is tougher to operate than it looks, and I'm not sure Mr. Coates has really mastered it. more
