Black Panther, Book 5: Avengers of the New World, Part Two Reviews

    A strong improvement over "A Nation Under My Feet" which featured strong politicraft--but wasn't necessarily a good comic (it was someone clearly learning the ropes and balancing the synthesis of words with images). =

    This story feels like a true comic arc however--and not just a "vanity" project dipping their toes in. Coates does exceptionally impressive work here. He marries canon together with plot development and new ideas--while again, the story is a bi t long with 12 issues, it moves much faster than the previous story.

    He makes some daring choices including the origins of Wakanda, the nature of the missing gods, an interesting cast of villians (including Thudnerball from the Wrecking Crew), the issues of the newly "Democratic" country, and actually a bit of sympathy for Klaw himself.

    And my guess? The Gods left for space (out of boredom)...leading us to the Wakandan Intergalactic Empire

    Great stuff

  • Sadaf

    I am probably really biased but I love Storm so this one gets an extra star from me. Also Shuri is a complete badass!

  • Lekeisha The Booknerd

    Dear God, I didn't think it was possible to swoon any more than I did with part one. T'Challa and Ororo are so damn perfect for each other. Swooning aside, this was filled with action and great storytelling.

  • Amanda [Novel Addiction]

    This run of Black Panther had a great start, followed by a few slow volumes. But it seems like it's back on track and better than ever. I really enjoyed this book, and I look forward to more.

    Less philosophy, more action - Ta-Nehisi Coates finally produces a Black Panther volume that reads like a comic book rather than a non-fiction treatise on political philosophies. Klaw is an intriguing villain and is given a great deal of backstory to make him almost worth rooting for. He is definitely

    the same Klaw from the Black Panther movie, which threw me for a loop at first. He actually looks super dorky with his satellite TV receiver arm attachment. But, like I said, Coates gives him a

    Less philosophy, more action - Ta-Nehisi Coates finally produces a Black Panther volume that reads like a comic book rather than a non-fiction treatise on political philosophies.

    the same Klaw from the Black Panther movie, which threw me for a loop at first. He actually looks super dorky with his satellite TV receiver arm attachment. But, like I said, Coates gives him a full personality, which makes up for the dorkiness.

    That constant action also makes up for previous, stodgier volumes. It can be a bit hard to follow at times, since Black Panther appears to be fighting actual Gods as well as Klaw. But the pace is relentless and the concluding battle is a real thrill. All I ask for with future volumes is some sort of Dramatis Personae at the beginning - I can never keep all of these characters straight.

    Strong improvement! This arc shows Coates really starting to get the hang of writing comics, and I was especially pleased with this volume. I love the philosophical angle, but it needs to be fleshed out with more action to be comics!

    Pros:

    1. Loving the Wakandan history, especially bringing in the mythology of the Djalia and finally understanding more of Shuri's power

    2. Storm/T'Challa is so hot

    Cons:

    1. Klaw is kind of a weak villain here, I'm way more interested in the gods.

    2. Where the hell did

    2. Where the hell did the Adversary come from all of a sudden!? I need to know more about him--it feels like the end of the volume was wrapped up too quickly

  • Nicole Westen

    I don't care who's name is on the title, Shuri is still best superhero.

  • Chad

    The book is finally rounding into a comic book, instead of a master thesis on international political theory. The first half of the book is still very slow and the cast is WAY too large. Each issue needs to come with a who's who. The action picks up in the second half of the book but Coates still needs to find a balance throughout each issue. At least now I'm not reading this book like it's a chore, but it still hasn't reached the heights of Priest's or Hudland's runs.

  • Richard

    Slightly less boring than the usual Coates stories.

  • Malum

    The best volume of Coates' run so far. I am also glad that they are keeping Storm and Black Panther's relationship intact, because I was always a fan of those two being together.
