Coates writes Between the World and Me and none other than Nobel Prize winner Toni Morrison anoints him as successor to James Baldwin The world is your oyster, Coates, crack it open What do you want to do, Return to Go Tell it on the Mountain Nope Or not yet Time to retrench and take the opportunity to call forth that comics nerd in yourself, the one that was always there, and make comics yourself Living the geek dream, man I smiled to see this comic as going back to the roots of who is, a comic [...]
Visually, the art is very appealing it is both bold and slick at the same time The story too, is something new Wakanda has always been this technological wonderland and now it is undergoing a tremendous upheaval Before long, this series would inform future takes on the Black Panther and it all started here.
I do not usually review an individual issue of a comic because it is like in the modern age, the old days were different reviewing one chapter or part of a chapter of a book That s why my comicbook reviews are of graphic novels or trade paperbacks, it gives a complete story I have to make an exception in this case as this may be one of the most hyped read comics of the new millennium Though I know from interviews leading up to this book what Ta Nehisi Coates is trying to do, this is only the set [...]
Bullet Review Huh.Yeah, I picked it up because I loved Black Panther in the movie So shoot me.I m still not sure what to think It definitely feels like I popped into the middle of a story, but it seems to be the first in a line You canNOT blame it for lack of representation 1 ALL the characters are black 2 MANY of the characters are female 3 The one overt romantic relationship is a lesbian one.
I ve read a couple of his solo books and seen him crop up in events and team titles but I don t know much about Black Panther though I was honestly hoping to be blown away with this comic and I think 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 very good start it really doesn t give you a good idea of who Black Panther is and that must have been one of the primary goals of this relaun [...]
Recent events have demonstrated that the once unconquerable Wakanda is now vulnerable The worst part of that is the threat seems to be coming from within Wakanda.I struggle with relating to T Challa as a character In a group he seems outstanding, but in his solo titles I ve often been underwhelmed I m not sure exactly why that is, because I want to like him much than I do Black Panther 1 revolves around turmoil in Wakanda That part was straight forward, but their was a part involving the Dora M [...]
This might be the first literary comic I ve read in a while I m not sure if that is a good or bad thing yet Coates has been nothing but honest about his venture into writing a comic book I won t hold that against anyone adjusting to a new medium This is a revamped Panther and it s hard to judge a comic run on a first issue I think 1 4 are usually all about set ups anyway Coates HAS INTRODUCED A WHOLE NEW WAKANDA, cast of characters, and villains I am anticipating subsequent issues and will witho [...]
The artwork is very appealing but the story is non existent Nothing really happens and what does happen, takes way too long for it to occur.
This review can also be found on my graphic novels blog graphicnovelty2 2016 12 0Although I am a Marvel fan, I didn t know much about Black Panther going into this book all I knew was that he was the African king of the advanced nation of Wakanda and was married to Storm Hearing that the well regarded author Ta Nehisi Coates was penning this new series, made me excited to give it a try I buddy read this book with a co worker and friend TW because I wanted his trusted opinion on it , and to be tr [...]
New spin, great storytelling, amazing and beautifully drawn Here we go
My eyes glazed over while reading this I haven t seen exposition this heavy since Chris Claremont The type that doesn t even reference what s happening in the panel If that weren t enough, I have no idea what s happening except that it s allegory for race relations and hatred in America Far less exposition, action, explanation, and dialog are needed here.
Considering all the hype, I think it s a very good sign that I can say that I wasn t disappointed Coates and Stelfreeze hit the ground running, not in terms of action packed scenes, but in terms of complexity This issue 1 reveals a very promising foundation for the development of multiple complex characters family relationships, loss, personal responsibility and socio economic and socio political themes Though the script was good although I think that the visual flow of the script lettering coul [...]
I ve been reading the work of Ta Nehisi Coates off and on for years, so I got pretty excited when I heard the he was going to dive into comic book writing I wasn t disappointedwell, I was when I reached the end of this issue.I m a casual comic book fan and though I m a Marvel in tastes, I do stick to indie stuff , so prior to reading this book, I didn t know much about Black Panther and Wakanda This made me step back a bit and think about how frustrating it is that I know about the Marvel mytho [...]
I didn t know this dude could write comics I ve read some of his stuff from The Atlantic, but hey nice crossover appeal Regarding issue 1, it was a good, solid read I m way behind on Marvel s hijinks, so I was a little lost Honestly, what I love about this book is that it is SELF CONTAINED Thank god there wasn t the obligatory Captian America Iron Man cameo To be quite honest, thank god there weren t any Americans or white people at all What they need to do now is KEEP EXPANDING It s such a sham [...]
YASsss I am completely living for this interpretation of T challa and the visual representation of Wakanda s technologically advanced society It is refreshing to see a world fully inspired by the creativity, intellect, and landscape of the African continent I am looking forward to reading issue 2.
While there s no big bad villain in this issue, and actually focuses on what I think are King Tchalla s bodyguards, I think Iv seen them in other volumes, only reason I know and the problems in Wakanda, this issue leaves me far from impressed, but on the other hand if this issue is this good without much villainy going on, I think it s a promising start.
Even I thought the Illuminati arc and New Avengers fleshed out the society in Wakanda well But this series is going to do the world building that Black Panther deserves Awesome writing and a dynamic art style that is refreshing to see again WeAreWakanda
Not that good but loved the art.
As someone who wasn t raised to read comic books and is certainly new to the genre, rather than focusing on the plot and the adventure, I was far intrigued by the concepts of race posed in this book Black Panther, is all about Race, and yet is not about race at all Meaning, Wakanda is a fictional African nation, where race move beyond skin color, and is categorized by culture, ancestry, and region Yet, this story is a reflection of our real society where race is a tool for power Race without p [...]
For years I thought I just didn t like the comic book form The Complete Maus excepted Then I learned that no, graphic novels were fine, what I didn t like was superhero comics Unfortunately, reading all the Hugo nominated works has me reading superhero comics again and confirming I still prefer my caped crusaders in movie format.So if you are super into superhero comics, this is probably great As a or less Marvel novice, though, the vast parade of characters who I assume I m supposed to recogn [...]
Was mesmerized page to page by the beautiful art.A fan of Ta Nehisi Coates, a big reason too why I picked this up I think he did pretty well for a first comic writing gig.Hope it only gets better
Love the art The storyline is rather grand introducing large scale events and many different story threads that haven t quite come together yet but you get the sense that it will down the line Also YAY CANON LESBIAN REVOLUTIONARIES
A very good beginning I m anxious to read 2 Also the lady at the comic shop was right the artwork is gorgeous.
Beautiful, difficult, raw, and epic I m ready for .
Wow This is only going to get better Mr Coates presents us with an amazing debut here
Very strong start I m looking forward to the next.
Exciting beginning I can t wait to see how the storylines develop
Les illustrations sont absolument magnifique
I am not a comic book person I used to read Bunty Comics for Girls they were fabulous in spite of their caucasity and some Commando comics for boys about soldiers in WWII nem as a child and I loved them But as I grew up and comics were less easy to find in Ghana, I dropped them and moved on to bigger and better things like THE BABYSITTERS CLUB, ANIMORPHS, HARRY POTTER etc etc So the superhero comic craze flew right past my head I mean sure, I knew of Batman, Superman, and X Men, and I loved the [...]
I should confess something first I was never a comic READER so much as a comic DRAWER I bought them here and there for the art, but never cared for the soap operatic quality to the storytelling Too many characters and cliffhangers designed to make you buy one issue, I suppose So I love the societal philosophical insights and the artistry, but I m not an expert by any means And I guess I hoped that Coates would a make this arc approachable for folks who had never read this comic before eg Netfli [...]
