THE BLACK PANTHER IS NO LONGER WELCOME IN WAKANDA! Who is this proud nation without its king? This exciting new miniseries answers that question as each issue spotlights a different fan-favorite Wakandan character. First up: Shuri proves that being without the Black Panther doesn't mean Wakanda is without heroes to protect it - and that there is a reason she too once wielded the power. Plus, part one of the "History of the Black Panthers" backup story, providing for the first time anywhere a definitive overview of every Wakandan who has ever held the mantle of the Black Panther!

    ‘Wakanda' #1 gives us two fantastic looks at the well-known characters that inhabit this powerful fictional land and an in-depth look at the history and culture that makes it stand apart in the Marvel Universe. Giving readers a better look at this nation without the filter of seeing things from the Black Panther's point of view is a fantastic choice and pays off wonderfully already. Read Full Review

    This issue is kind of a mixed bag, with Shuri stepping up to deal with a threat, but never really explaining what is actually happening, followed up by some fun canon-welding. Read Full Review
