Nnedi Okorafor returns alongside rising star artist Rachael Stott with a brand-new arc! But this is a Black Panther you've never seen before - one who will change Wakanda forever. Something has stolen pieces of the Djalia, the plane of Wakandan memory, and it's up to the Princess of Wakanda to save it. But for every piece of the Djalia lost, a piece of Shuri disappears as well. Will a new suit be enough to save herself and her nation?

    Black Nerd Problems - Khadjiah Johnson May 24, 2019

    Our Faded Connections At times these memories haunt us, transforming into different entities that take over our well-being. Being in touch with them can open up both previous trauma and ways that were used to escape it. Not all memories bring back joy. Sometimes they hold us hostage. I feel like this comic was in tune with that sentiment. Shuri #8 opened my eyes to the fact that our own memories our sometimes the villain in our story. We can't always overpower them and we may not be able to vocalize them, there are people to help us (…did Shuri #8 give me a lesson or two on how to deal with depressive episodes? Probably.) The Okorafor-Scott-Lopez team took us on a journey through quips, colors, and famous tunes to help readers come to terms with combating erasure on our own spiritual journeys. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Aaron Jones May 28, 2019

    Nnedi Okorafor is back and the story finds Shuri taking on the mantle of Black Panther in T'Challa's absence. While it gives hope to some, it poses some issues for others. The big space bug is still wreaking havoc and our team of super-powered women have to find out how to lure the Lubber to defeat it. Shuri teams with Storm, Chief Ikoko and the Dora Milage to quell this threat. Oh but there is also a mystery to solve. To find out what happens check out the latest issue of Shuri available now.

    The last two issues of Shuri were delightful, particularly #7, but Vita Ayala's arc is over and Nnedi Okorafor is back on the title and, unfortunately, that means the story is back to being something of a meandering mess. Read Full Review
