•  When a down-on-his-luck New York City narcotics officer was suspended from the force, he adopted the vestments of the Black Panther to do the right thing by his neighborhood and his burgeoning family. Mentored by both T'Challa and Erik Killmonger, he became something more than the sum of his parts. That was then.
•  Now, Kasper Cole's days as the White Tiger are behind him and he can only watch helplessly as Wakanda burns halfway around the world, leaving Kasper completely disillusioned by a leader he once looked up to.

    Black Nerd Problems - Omar Holmon Apr 28, 2017

    This issue was a Bret The Hitman Hart-level technical one shot. There was so much back story and hilarious turns of events executed with extreme excellence. The best part is that there's still more to come with Kevin, the ending with T'Challa is an excellent entrance into new territory for not only Cole, but his relationship and dynamic with T'Challa as well.

    The current story arc is interesting and well thought out enough to make up for the lack of the Midnight Angels and open the door the strong black male lead we find in Kevin Cole. Browne takes special care to add all of the little details necessary to make Cole an interesting and complex character. I'm looking forward to seeing where this extraordinarily strong creative team takes what seems to be a compelling story line and how it all intertwines with the rest of the Black Panther universe. But, wherever this story arc goes, I'm all strapped in and ready to go along for the ride. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Robert Reed Apr 24, 2017

    Black Panther: World of Wakanda #6 is an excellent example of what can be done with a single issue story. Rembert Browne does excellent in his debut, and brings a nice energy to the page and the character. Joe Bennett's artwork is phenomenal, giving the action beats a kinetic energy that most comics struggle with. While it's unfortunate that Black Panther: World of Wakanda is ending, it's nice to see it go out on such a high note and with a promise of what the future holds. Read Full Review

    BLACK PANTHER WORLD OF WAKANDA #6 is definitely a shift from the previous issues, but it sets up an interesting return-to-crime fighting narrative instead of just entering into it. Read Full Review

    Overall though, while World of Wakanda seems to be ending for now, this issue like the others has been for my money a success. Bringing in voices outside of the traditional milieu of comics: poets and journalists has helped invest the book with not just a different pedigree, also a different tone compared to Marvels other books, and its sad to apparently see it go. While this was Rembert Brownes first pass at Kasper Cole, I do hope he and Joe Bennett make a return trip sometime. Read Full Review

    Really good on many levels. Needs some refining. Lots more promise if Midnight Angels don't get caught up in the timeline and have some kind of makeover. Maybe the three would work well togetheras part of a team with Manifold - instead of The Crew that can't possibly really have any impact on Ro or Cage or probably even Misty.

    KASPER COLE IS BACK!!! Unfortunately, this seems to be the last issue of World of Wakanda, I'm hoping that we'll see more of him in another project soon. The artwork was great and the story was interesting. I always found Kasper to be a compelling character, kind of like the Spider-Man of the Black Panther mythos because of his constant struggles with his life outside of the tights.

    Kasper Cole gets a mission from T'Challa and a pretty swank update. This "put it all on the field" one-shot is a great introduction, standard adventure, and overhaul for the oft-forgotten White Tiger (no, not that White Tiger, the other one). Solid plotting and great art are let down only by somewhat forgettable dialogue and extremely forgettable villains. This is a perfect kickoff for a solo Kasper Cole series, and the fact that one wasn't greenlit is disappointing. Greg "Foolkiller" Salinger can get a five-issue stealth mini but Kasper can't? What the ☠☠☠☠, Marvel?
