    Black Panther selling vibranium to folks in Dubai and Klaw comes and tries to ruin it by extorting the innocents of Dubai for $5 billion. A simple story for a complex hero and villain. If you're new to the Black Panther mythos, this might be an interesting starting off point but there's more to be seen for what the next issues will tackle. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Feb 7, 2018

    Black Panther: The Sound and the Fury #1 is a decent read for a young and new Black Panther fan, but it offers little to anyone with some experience with TChalla. Its not bad, but its not good either. The art does a lot of it, and it does get some extra credit for including TChallas first appearance in the back. All told, I can recommend this to someone with kids, but its far from a must-buy. Read Full Review

    Pairing a competent-but-generic tale like this alongside an issue from Stan Lee and Jack Kirby's legendary Fantastic Four run does Sound and Fury no favors, as the King's rich, kinetic art leaps off the page and Lee's dated dialogue crackles in a way that the lead feature fails to do.

    As someone who is a fan of the character this felt like a very hollow attempt at the character. I did find it entertaining but it didn't really feel like the writer got the voice of T'challa right. Read Full Review

    The inclusion of a classic Stan Lee/Jack Kirby story helps add a bit of value, but new readers interested in learning more about T'Challa are better off looking elsewhere. Read Full Review

    The GCRN - Daniel Clark Feb 16, 2018

    If there is any reason to pick up this book it is the reprinting of Black Panthers first appearance that is included. Having it right next to this comic does make it that much more apparent how off this mark everything about this issue was. The biggest is this issue will actual drive away poential new comic readers who assume this type of story is a standad affair. If that is you please know that comics are better than this.

    Well I find it interesting. Hard to put its in the univers of the Black Panther movie with the 616 Klaw Look.
    The panther is a impressive detective & fighter. That is pleasant to have a comics reminding that.
    The FF53 is interesting for having klaw origin. But issue of the 60's is really hard to read in the present. They don't make comics the same way & the bubble are very charged & in number.

    I will judge the present issue not the FF53 one.
    Cover - Nice cover but didn't give anything of the plot inside. 1/2
    Writing - A great story. 3/3
    Arts - Very effective even if sometime not perfect 2.5/3
    Feeling - I enjoyed this reading. 2/2

    I'd recommend reading the FF backup first as the main story is a soft sequel. The main story is pretty bad though, it tries to do to much in a one-shot and blatantly exposits in the dialogue with no shame. One thing I did enjoy was seeing what Klaw looked like before his transfermation, Marvel Studios really captured Kirby's original rendering of the character in Andy Circus.

    The Black Panther saves Dubai (mmm, political rumbles, mmm) from Klaw. It's a cash-in for the MCU film and clearly a book targeted at youngsters. These facts do not excuse its shabbiness. The decision to bundle it with the awesomer-in-every-way Fantastic Four #53 ends up being a mistake. Yes, you get a GOOD comic in the mix, but it's also the perfect comparison to show how hollow and dull the modern strip is. The modern story shamelessly cribs the original's ending, too.

    There's not much to talk about with this. This is just a cash in for the upcoming film. The plot is nothing special and the dialogue is so bad. It reminds me of 60s' Marvel dialogue but that's just unacceptable nowadays. However, the storytelling is definitely not as good as 60s' Marvel. The Fantastic Four story in the back definitely proves that. But with this review, I'm judging the new material. I would not recommend this at all. Maybe if you want a Fantastic Four reprint, I guess.
