    Even though it's the second part of a two part story, you can totally pick this up if you've never read an issue of Black Panther: The Man Without Fear. The story is light and entertaining, and the dynamic between Storm and Black Panther is worth reading. In fact, I really enjoyed this team up and I wish they would have teamed them up a long time ago--seeing them together is long overdue. It's a married couple fighting Kraven the Hunter, and surprise surprise, it's not boring! Read Full Review

    The only thing that really bugged me about this issue was the interactions between Ororo and T'Challa. Throughout the book, the two are teasing and chiding each other as they chase after Kraven. As a whole, it comes off as a bit much. Now, that's not to say that it's an inaccurate depiction. To the contrary, Liss hits the husband-wife dynamic on the head. The problem is that, as realistic and occasionally charming as it may be, I don't much feel like hearing a married couple bicker their way through a comic, even if it is good-natured teasing.

    It will be given a chance, but only one. Black Panther: Man Without Fear has been given many more than that, and it continues to underwhelm. I want to like this book. I really do. But this whole take is just not very intriguing, it's not compelling and it doesn't feel any different from the eight hundred billion other "big city vigilante" books out there today, and that's what Black Panther should always be. Different. Unique. Read Full Review

    Im afraid that this aint the shining light that people make it out to be. It has its ups but it has too many downs to keep me on board. I am unaware of the future of the book with the return of Daredevil coming next month. If Black Panther were to go on I would wish for it to be more like previous incarnations and not having such a strong character and his wife substituting for someone else and trying to be something they are not.
