    Still, Okorafor never shirks the political challenges of Wakandan isolationism, the perils of monarchical rule, or the political import of unity and community across the African continent. Somehow, it's all here and it is all crafted in ways that make readers want to return to Shuri's world again and again. Read Full Review

    Hold Up with the Weapons The Shuri team is giving us the culture of Wakanda in sensational, expanded breaths. From the first issue I took a breath of hieroglyphs. Next, I was given definitive shapes with cultural implications. By the time Romero caught me with the color schemes, I was given seemingly simplistic notions that aided in a comedic effect throughout the comic. What I hope to see in the future is the merge between these “millennials” from the other African countries. The nervousness was hilarious and classic to say the least, but there is so much more to explore with the leadership mantra. How could we use the outside realm to heighten the need of T'Challa's return, and Shuri's dependency on the ancestors in spite of her feeling like her creations can do the job? Pressure creates diamonds, but Vibranium is a Wakandan genius's best friend. Read Full Review

    This book has plenty of great pieces, but a seriously difficult time bringing them all together to make something great. Read Full Review
