    This story really brought it home in the end and gave a character a solid ending (we could use more of that to make room for other characters). Malice is a character that needed a real arc and dimension and Okaorafor really did that.

    Really this mini is just the first reintroduction of the writer who will be taking on Shuri in October. I have a lot of hope for that book but I do wonder if the maturity of the writing and tone will be there. I also wonder how much Shuri as she is now will be taken. Shuri has been more spiritual than technology based in her powers. Coates as done amazing work with her in Black Panther and more worry is that progress will be sacrificed to bring Shuri in line with her MCU counter part.

    Other than some imperfect figure drawing here and there, the art is an upgrade from the previous installments. The story hits it's stride as well, I like how this ties back to the goop from Black Panther: Long Live the King. Nakia is obviously reminiscent of a crack addict, I'm glad she could find a path to redemption.

    The end of the Mimic story redeems Nakia and makes better use of the "sentient vibranium" concept the author first floated in Black Panther: Long Live the King. This is an undeniably flawed comic, but also an undeniably passionate and ambitious one. Many of the peripheral storytelling jobs are handled roughly, but the central story about Nakia is impressive. The art is a perfect match for the writing and it evokes the same feelings of novelty, daring, and not-always-successful ambition. I would have liked to see the first two issues handled this well for sure.

    The last part was maybe better, it's not really good. I wonder if marvel use this to make a nakia more close of the movie character in some month. For me that would have be better to do this right away even it that scratch some of his past.

    Cover - Variant not related 1/2
    Writing - 1/2
    Arts - Make this a little better even if not perfect & with to much coloring for the background. 2/3

    This wasn't particularly well written and I didn't care about it.
