    Malice finds Storm, Rogue, and Nightcrawler at an African grocery store and ruins everyone's night. Drum in hand, Malice stirs up trouble in Brooklyn and our 3 Dora Milaje make their way to join the fight as well. Some twists and turns later, another hero joins as we are about to wrap up this story in the next issue. How are we going to resolve the catastrophe Malice has wrought? Find out by picking up this issue and I'm anxiously awaiting next issue as well. Read Full Review

    This is a fun, well-written adventure which is let down, in places, by the politics of the art. Read Full Review

    It might be jarring for MCU fans to see Nakia's comic book counterpart, but this is a mostly a fun comic, albeit with choppy art. Read Full Review

    It's not a bad comic, but it isn't particularly great either. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Jul 25, 2018

    An okay issue that helps flesh out the villain, but does so in a drawn out and wonky plotted sort of way. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jul 29, 2018

    X-Men: Wakanda Forever #1 worsens the comics premise, focusing even more on Nakias pitiable villain motivation and her hatred of women which TChalla loves. The artwork doesnt get any better either. Once again, I cant recommend this miniseries. Give it a pass. Read Full Review
