    It's fitting that the last character spotlighted in the Wakanda anthology is Okoye. Her adventure is one of the highlights, as she works with her niece who is training to become a member of the Dora Milaje. Read Full Review

    The final issue of ‘Wakanda' wraps up the journey into the various characters and past of the country, giving some good development and tidbits. Further exploration of the history just teased here would be fantastic, but the miniseries served its purpose and served it well overall. Read Full Review

    At this point I would wait for the trade paperback to come out with all the issues together but if you have been following the series up to this point it is well worth your time. Read Full Review

    Probably the best one.

    This anthology was a missed opportunity. I feel like only the first and last issues really gave us what this title should have been. It's a shame.

    It's a decently put together book, and the art's nice. But I'm split on the Okoye character work. Her relationship with Natima, I like; her ruthlessness, not so much.

    But the book's good enough to get me questioning how much of that is my own sexist bias; would it bug me if a male Black Panther did those things?
