So much going on, and so many appearances by some of the more obscure fan favourite characters, which makes this a great read. This book keeps building for a few different storylines, and it's all so interesting.

Luckily, Black Panther has assembled the wildest and weirdest support staff you've ever seen. Meet Gorilla Man, Ka-Zar and the rest of the Agents of W...

Just like the last issue, this one wraps up all the loose ends while also delivering some emotional moments between the characters. It's been a great series, with its first arc being some of the best Marvel stories in recent years.

As we're reaching the end, the series delivers an emotional issue of Reed and Ben. It's a nice supplement to the main book, even if not being a direct continuation of what the series was about in the beginning.
