His family is dead. The few friends he's made are dead. And his about to be. There is nothing left of the boy named N'Jadaka. Now there is only the vengeance to come. Bryan Hill and Juan Ferreyra bring Erik Killmonger to the edge - and he's not coming back.

    Killmonger's story is one that is a cautionary tale of the toxic nature of anger and vengeance, and despite the ominous final panel, it's difficult to not feel devastated about the road the once-promising young man went down. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Mar 6, 2019

    Juan Ferreyra has brilliant and beautiful art throughout this issue. There are two action heavy splash pages that are beautifully rendered and visually exciting. Ferreyra uses light and shadow brilliantly and there is so much to marvel at page after page. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Oz Longworth Mar 10, 2019

    Bottom Line: An appropriately tepid ending to a tepid book. If you hold this comic to your ear, you can almost hear Bryan Edward Hill saying, "Oh, screw it" on just about every page. A colleague of mine put it better than I could when he said this pointless cash grab reads like it was Marvel Studios instead of Marvel Comics. What a bust. Read Full Review

    This was actually good. I had plenty of problems with this series, but this issue managed to overcome those issues. I know some people may be disappointed how we don't get to see Killmonger fight Black Panther, but we all know that story. I like how it ties into Rise of the Black Panther, a miniseries I enjoyed more than this one. The art here is the biggest reason to buy this series. The art is great.

    "I offered you a kingdom. You wanted to be a slave. Slaves do what they're told"


    We're finally concluding this series of reviews of Brian Hill and Juan Ferreyra's Killmonger series. The comic picks a year after the events of the last issue with Erik fully embracing his Killmonger persona.

    Erik's depiction here is night and day from the first installment and it's wild considering that this is still just the beginning of his journey as a character. He's more competent and cunning here than he's been shown in the series and it pays off in a big way across multiple scenes laid out in this issue.

    There are plenty of breathtaking moments laid out by Juan and Eduardo Ferreyra over the cours more

    This kinda ran out of steam. Granted, doing a prequel makes it tough to bring real closure to a character's story. This issue tries to dodge the problem by focusing on the end of Knight's story, but it never gets entirely out from under the "you know that's not actually your protagonist, right?" cloud.
