Black Panther (2005) #36 Review

BACK TO AFRICA, PART 2

Back in Wakanda, the Royal Couple’s troubles continue, as one of T’Challa’s greatest foes makes his power move.

Summary

In Wakanda the people scramble to find out where Killmonger could have gotten technology to capture Photon.

In Niganda Killmonger whips the people in a frenzy as he regales them with tales of unity and overpowering the American invaders. He visits shuri’s cell and leaves some of his army locked in with her to keep her company. She makes short work of them as T’challa and Wakanda attack Killmonger’s forces.

They are met with surprising opposition by mutated Animals but T’challa manages to make his way to Killmonger.

 

The Good

Cover- Sweet illustration of Storm and her Beau, he’s on his throne while she stands beside him in African garb. Ah the happier times of their marriage! How I miss this!

Action- Explosions, Bombs, bullets, blood and death. Yup it’s a party…I mean war all right!

Art-Cafu continues stellar work which shines in action scenes.

Villain- Killmonger is badass and cool too! How awesome is being showered with bullets and having them deflected without a gesture? I’ll tell you! Not as cool as surviving a couple Missiles and one tipped with Vibranium; LoL ; That’s how!

The Bad

Exposition- Good lord this issue was a chore to read. Allot of words, reminiscent of the 90’s. (Shakes head)

 

The Ugly

More action though a bit heavy on the exposition, still a solid 3/5

    Hudlin ‘s major arc was this story that was tie in from issues 1-6. After this run Jason Aaron and the Skrulls took over. A good read from one of Tchalla’s best story tellers.

    I think we as black fans of the only image of a strong black couple shouldn’t allow writers to destroy that marriage! I think that Luke cage should be with a black female as well,I would love to see him and Shuri hit off . What if Cage,Falcon,Bishop,Photon and Voodoo all moved to Wakanda and formed marvels first powerful all black team?
