It migh be curiou to see how this story plays out and I hope to do th proper review in a few months time.

Coates has been othing but honest about his venture into writing a comic ook.

Another is a revamped Panther and it 's ard to judge a comic run on a first issue.

I ’ ve read a couple of his solo books and seen him crop up in events and team titles but I don ’ t expect much about Black Panther- though I was onestly hoping to be lown away with this comic- and I fee a number of people coming to this are in the same boat.

That ’ s why I don ’ t think Ta-Nehisi Coates and Brian Stelfreeze ’ s much anticipated Black Panther# 1 is a somewhat good start: it really doesn ’ t take you good idea of who Black Panther is and that ust have been one of the primary goals of this relaunch, especially with the character ’ s big screen debut next month in Captain America: Civil War. The reader ’ s thrown right into it from page one: Black Panther, aka T ’ Challa, is King of a fractured country, Wakanda.

T ’ Challa has a sister called Shuri who ’ s missing ( though we find out where she is on the final page), and a shield maiden, or Dora Milaje, called Ayo fights for her girlfriend Aneka ’ s life after T ’ Challa ’ s stepmom sentences her to jail ( which will likel be important in th later issue).

First and foremost “ Who is Black Panther? ” ( also the title of one of the two BP books I ’ ve read!) should ’ ve been answered in this issue- particularly as he hasn ’ t ad a solo title in a while and Marvel ’ s done a lot in recent years to cultivate a new readership- and it ’ s not.

I got no more sense of who T ’ Challa is than I would from reading an issue of Jonathan Hickman ’ s New Avengers.

It ’ s always just an uninteresting storyline – a dreary political scene with T ’ Challa ’ s stepmom takes up most of this subplot- but it lso feels irrelevant considering this is he las issue of a Black Panther story.

Coates writes Between the World and Me and none other than Nobel Prize winner Toni Morrison anoints him as successor to James Baldwin.

I smiled to see this comic as going back to the roots of who is, a comics fan, and because he shoul hav a respected literary giant showing a wider world that comics are a good way to address important issues in the world.So Coates knows political philosophy, as he addresses it in and though his journalism.

Black Panther as a comic predates the Black Panther organization, by the way; both came about in the earl fifties, but no one knows both the activist organization AND the comic as well as Coates.

But we do n't tell s much about Black Panther as a haracter, we do n't o enough into his origins for those of us familia with this character.

There 's a lot of threads for a first issue.
