Black Panther, Book 6: The Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda, Part One Reviews

  • Mitchell Kukulka

    Though I've been one of the apparently few(?) people that have dug Coates' comic book work since the beginning, it seems like 2018 really was the year he started to come into his own as one of the most important and thrilling new voices working in the medium today. Between this exciting new chapter in his Black Panther saga and his soon-to-be seminal contribution to the Captain America mythos, this past year has been the crucial bridge over the gap between Co

    Though I've been one of the apparently few(?) people that have dug Coates' comic book work since the beginning, it seems like 2018 really was the year he started to come into his own as one of the most important and thrilling new voices working in the medium today. Between this exciting new chapter in his Black Panther saga and his soon-to-be seminal contribution to the Captain America mythos, this past year has been the crucial bridge over the gap between Coates' status as a "writer who does comics" and a "comic book writer."

    Black Panther and Star Wars had a baby, and The Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda was born. I'm very much looking forward to the next installment of this series. The world in this universe is much more sci-fi than all of the others combined. I was wholly confused when I first started reading. Enough so that I had to start over after a few pages. And then it starts to all make sense. Still, I'd like to know how T'Challa, Nakia, and M'Baku came to be in this empire. Is it a dream? Is the Goddess Bas

Is the Goddess Bast showing T'Challa some wisdom infused future? I need answers!!!!

    Black Panther in space! Sweet! But like...really, really in space. This isn't "Black Panther hops on a spaceship and goes to some far-flung galaxy to have adventures." This is "we rebooted Black Panther in a Wakanda-based universe with some really interesting twists."

    For example, Wakanda is bad! Or at least, the intergalactic empire that resembles Wakanda is the villain here. And Black Panther himself may or may not be the Black Panther we're familiar with from previous volumes. The entirety of

    Black Panther in space! Sweet! But like...really, really in space. This isn't "Black Panther hops on a spaceship and goes to some far-flung galaxy to have adventures." This is "we rebooted Black Panther in a Wakanda-based universe with some really interesting twists."

    For example, Wakanda is bad! Or at least, the intergalactic empire that resembles Wakanda is the villain here. And Black Panther himself may or may not be the Black Panther we're familiar with from previous volumes. The entirety of Book 6 finds our hero having memory problems (and generally acting in some less-than-regal ways). It's largely thrilling to see the staid nature of Black Panther comics broken up into something unfamiliar and exciting.

    And I do mean exciting - Book 6 is not the traditional Ta-Nehisi Coates gabfest. Issues are often dialogue-free and action-packed. For me, who has never been a fan of the density of Coates writing style, this is a welcome change. If you preferred characters droning endlessly about complex Wakandan politics, you might be less pleased.

    However, the one aspect of Book 6 that should definitely please all readers: each issue has end notes describing this new setting and the new characters involved. Yes, please! My biggest complaint about previous Black Panther volumes was the large number of characters who are barely introduced. Am I supposed to recall who Black Panther's great-uncle is and why he's important? Hopefully not! The end notes in Book 6 diminish the need for a perfect memory of Black Panther lore.

    This volume isn't perfect, of course - it jams a ton of world-building into six issues, sometimes too much, and the art veers from really cool to really hard to decipher. But it's a radical change from the rest of the Black Panther series and a total breath of fresh air. Can't wait for Book 7.

    Wow!! This was great!! As it starts off, I was confused as to what was going on, then once I caught on by issue 2 I was all in. N’Jadaka runs the Wakandan empire which owns 5 galaxies. T’Challa, M’Baku and Nakia are part of a rebel group trying to end the tyranny. I’m am so curious about a lot of things like how did it end up like this and what will happen once T’Challa gets his memories back? Absolutely can’t want to read the rest.

    The start of an intriguing new mega-arc from Coates, which jumps 2000 years into the future where Wakanda is a massive, oppressive empire spanning five galaxies. T'challa can't remeber his past or how he got where he is, but many believe him to be the legendary hero of the empire from "Wakanda Prime" making his prophesied return. Slave-turned-hero T'challa becomes a warrior for the rebellion led by Nakia and M'Baku, whose presence in this future is also unexplained. It's Black Panther meets Star

Slave-turned-hero T'challa becomes a warrior for the rebellion led by Nakia and M'Baku, whose presence in this future is also unexplained. It's Black Panther meets Star Wars, and I'm totally on board for that.

    A good example of style over susbtance, but damn... such cool style, I freaking love Acuña's art and the color palette they used throughout the whole book, but I'm giving it one star less than I should because the story is pretty much Star Wars.

    I slogged through Coates' previous Black Panther books because I was hoping they would bridge to this new series but nope! They have absolutely nothing to do with each other and I wasted a lot of time. In fact, reading that series made me even more confused when reading this.

    Well, anyway, this was a lot of fun (it helps that I am a sucker for cosmic stories). And, unlike most of Coates' previous Panther books-which were all talk and little action-this was basically six issues of lasers being fir

    I slogged through Coates' previous Black Panther books because I was hoping they would bridge to this new series but nope! They have absolutely nothing to do with each other and I wasted a lot of time. In fact, reading that series made me even more confused when reading this.

    Well, anyway, this was a lot of fun (it helps that I am a sucker for cosmic stories). And, unlike most of Coates' previous Panther books-which were all talk and little action-this was basically six issues of lasers being fired everywhere and spaceships exploding left and right. If you held your breath while reading this book until the action stopped, you would probably die first.

    The only thing that bugs me is that BP is in space with no memory, many of the characters that we know are there but all different, and Wakanda is a massive space empire. there is a little note at the beginning of issue 2 saying that all would be explained but, unfortunately, this is not the volume that they chose to do that in.

    This was fun as hell.

    Funny enough while some of my favorite writers (Snyder) are going into heavy exposition and overly long storytelling in their stories, Coates is scaling back and learning how to mix actual comic pages with dialogue. After how good Coates Captain America was I had to give his newest Black Panther a chance. So glad that I did.

    This is over the top fun space adventure. Our favorite Black Panther hero has lost his memories. He decides to fight on, break out of his prison, and become the hero (and king) of space. After learning the Wakanda empire spreads further than Earth, T'Challa decides to start his own revolution in space and fight back.

    This is over the top as hell and fun. Watching awesome sweeping space battles, T'Challa whooping ass, and the art all being pretty solid everything there works well. The storyline is a bit silly and it takes a second to even understand what's happening. The villain is lacking though.

    This is overall pretty solid. It's a big step in the right direction. A 3 out of 5.

    This read like it borrowed to heavily from other sci-fi franchises.....ugh.

    I'm not really certain why this is book six. It seems completely unrelated to the previous Coates run. This is Black Panther reimagined as Star Wars. At some point, I'm sure we'll find out what this story set thousands of years in the future where Wakanda rules 5 star systems has to do with the rest of Coates run. Unfortunately, we don't even get the hint of answers in these 6 issues. We get little explanation at all of what's going on. We're thrown in with a T'Challa that has lost his memory an

    I'm not really certain why this is book six. It seems completely unrelated to the previous Coates run. This is Black Panther reimagined as Star Wars. At some point, I'm sure we'll find out what this story set thousands of years in the future where Wakanda rules 5 star systems has to do with the rest of Coates run. Unfortunately, we don't even get the hint of answers in these 6 issues. We get little explanation at all of what's going on. We're thrown in with a T'Challa that has lost his memory and is now a slave. He quickly meets up with some rebels and there's lot of lasers firing for 6 issues but little story. It's super decompressed. Coates must have taken his critics to heart. He's edited his words down to the point where the dialogue and narration is almost sparse. The only thing I'm sure of is how it's going to end. The M'Kraan Crystal has made an appearance. Any good X-Men fan knows that's how these alternate realities typically get reset.
