Black Panther #1 (Marvel Comics)
STORY : Ta-Nehisi Coates
ART : Brian Stelfreeze (artist), Laura Martin (colours) & VC’s Joe Sabino (letters)
As the mighty Marvel engines roll on, both on-screen and on the page, so too does the effort to diversify – something that has been a recurring issue for years and has been gaining ground more recently. On a personal note, I feel it’s also been a great deal more successfully done and better managed at Marvel than by many of their peers.
One of the most prominent amongst the non-caucasian characters in the MU has been The Black Panther. King, Avenger, Defender and even member of the FF and the superhero Illuminati (of the MU), T’Challa has been a powerful force in this world over the years – but after an intense but rocky few years, we’re back with him once again and here’s hoping it’s a positive step.

This comic is the most unlikely comic to have happened, the comic I never thought I’d see – Peter David, writer extraordinaire, bringing us a story starring the much criticised and oft over-exposed Merc-with-a-mouth.
But it’s here, it’s real and it’s actually damned good! Continue reading “Deadpools Art of War #2 (Marvel Comics, 2014)”

I suppose it was inevitable that after the positive reaction to the recent portrayal on TV’s Marvels Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D by actor J. August Richards as the cyborg assassin Deathlok, that a comic version would be relaunched.
That coupled with Nathan Edmonson on writing duties, made this a mixed bag of expectations.
