Black Panther: Long Live the King
April 29, 2019 6:37 AM - by Nnedi Okorafor - Subscribe

As the Black Panther and an Avenger, T'Challa has had to save the world time and again - but those duties pale in comparison to his responsibilities as king of Wakanda. As the nation rebuilds in the wake of revolution, T'Challa finds his people besieged by a massive monster tearing through the country, leaving a trail of destruction in its wake! Written by Nnedi Okorafor and Aaron Covington, art by André Lima Araújo, Mario Del Pennino and Tana Ford

All of the stories were enjoyable, but I like the third arc, the one about Ngozi, the best - I'd never heard about the character before, but it wasn't too difficult to figure out the basics about her: Nigerian that spent time in Wakanda, in a wheelchair, has a venom symbiote. Tana Ford's art works really well for her, too - there was a good amount of dynamism in the art and poses, and the melty venom look really worked for me.

The other two arcs were okay - I like the art in them as well (with the exception of Shuri's character design, wth), and the colors are fantastic (the constant red-orange sky, and everything is a lot less saturated than you'd usually find in superhero comics). The stories mostly felt functional, but not super exciting.
