    INFINITY WARS: GHOST Panther #1 is a great mix of two popular characters and their origins to create a whole new character that is just as interesting, if not more so, than the originals. Read Full Review

    Jed MacKay's script is strong, and Jefte Palo's artwork looks as if it was taken straight from a comic produced in Wakanda. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Steven Martinez Nov 24, 2018

    Infinity Wars Ghost Panther #1 introduces us to a mix of Black Panther and Ghost Rider, the Ghost Panther. The story is simple and straight forward, but the fun comes in the mash-up characters. The art style lacks details in some places but shines during the action/fight scenes. Read Full Review

    Even the decent story provided by Jed MacKay cannot make up for the disjointed, bizarre artwork and colors in this first tale of the Ghost Panther. Read Full Review

    Overall, it's not a bad comic. It's one that says exactly what it is, and is happy to be just that. Read Full Review

    This wasn’t as exciting as the cover made me hope.

    T'Challa turns his back on Wakanda and becomes the stunt-rider Johnny Blaze. But his father's assassination drags him back for vengeance and a Faustian pact with Zarathos. While I'd admit the writing and art aren't flawless, they have incredible ambition and unique style in their favor. The result is a story that's bold, memorable and appealing even with some storytelling faults.

    The sometimes-stilted formality of the dialogue is intentional. But it's calling back waaay further than Ta-Nehisi Coates. It goes back to the mid-70s, when Don McGregor was bringing his intricate plotting, in-depth characterization, and questionable vocabulary to two epic stories: "Panther's Rage" in Jungle Action and Killraven in Amazing Adventures.

    The story is original. I like how they mixe Tchalla & Johnny Blaze in this. It's Nice to see Tchalla refusing Zarathos' proposition, first. Or Zarathos offer some lesser power to tempt him. I even find it logic that Tchalla ask for it and then refuse it once more. But I'm not fan at all of the name they give to some character. Shuriri (Really ?!)

    Cover - Not related because showing the character and his panther (For now no panther in the book). I find it less good than the regular. 0.5/2
    Writing - I was fascinated by how easily they mix both story in one who make sense. Maybe a little too fast sometime, but really good. 3/3
    Arts - This is not the kind I like, and I wonder if the inking didn't show the limit of his style more

    Jed MacKay seems to like to change up his dialogue depending on the series. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. This particular issue reads like early Coates' Black Panther. Like, A Nation Under Our Feet Book One Black Panther. That's not a good thing. The dialogue is very stiff. And the story isn't much better. I'm really worried about Man Without Fear.
