    As always the art is on point. Both Pina and Salazar keep the action, characters and setting looking great. I also hold a special place in my heart for the designs of all the characters clothes, especially the Black Panther suit and Storm's outfit.

I do wonder at what point in T'challa first year we will end up. Here's to hoping it ends just as strong as the rest of the book. Read Full Review
