Black Panther #1


Black Panther #1

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book, but fair warning to comic fans, it’s densely written text for a comic. Obviously Ta-Nehisi Coates is a gifted writer and that’s on full display here, but he also clearly has never written a comic before, and that also shows. Parts of this read more like a novel, but he’s clearly finding his way and I’m looking forward to reading the second one. His take on Black Panther and the crisis in Wakanda is excellent and speaks strongly of someone deeply aware of central African politics as well as having a clear love of the character. Somewhat amusingly, this volume also contains the first appearance of Black Panther in Fantastic Four. Comics have really come a long way. Thank goodness.
