T'Challa is the man with the plan when Christopher Priest puts the emphasis on the Wakandan king's reputation as the ultimate statesman, as seen through the eyes of the U.S. government's Everett K. Ross. As the Panther investigates a murder in New York, Ross plays devil's advocate in an encounter with Mephisto, and a new regime seizes control of Wakanda. When the truth behind the coup becomes clear, T'Challa finds himself an enemy of the state--and a major revelation threatens to destroy his relationship with the Avengers. Plus: Meet Queen Divine Justice--is she ready to join T'Challa's deadly crew of female bodyguards, the Dora Milaje? Are they ready for her?--From publisher description.

Every episode is excellent. T'challa has enemies at his doorstep and outside. The way that he stays ahead of his foes is astonishing. But the appearances of so many heroes adds even more friction to the story. He's drawn away from home. But he knows this. And as he pieces together what is transpiring, the enemies become clear and he gets ever closer to his true adversary. The mastermind behind every assault, every diversion, down to every hired gun setting out to eliminate him. This story, about a hero king has depth and it is much unexpected to see what T'challa is capable of. And Everett Ross, though a bad storyteller himself, adds an excellent source of cynical and comic relief on his personal narrative account of events occurring. Excellent story. Chris Priest did excellent with this rendition of "Damisa Sarki."

From wikipedia: "He has stated he was unaware of the British science fiction novelist Christopher Priest." Unfortunately, this guy isn't nearly as good a writer as the British one, either. My expectations were too high, but it's a good way to get Black Panther basics to orient new fans.

First volume of a brilliantly written run by Christopher Priest taking on the Wakandan king in a new way. Priest uses an everyman sort of character as the point of view to the whole story, rendering the title character as more in the shadows. He mixes together social commentary, hilarious humour, political intrigue, and strong characterization throughout. The narrative style takes a bit of getting used to- Priest jumps back and forth in time- but the end result is well worth the read.

One of the key eras of the publishing history of Marvel's first African superhero. Written by Christopher James Priest, it was as sharp a commentary on American and international politics as anything I'd seen in the regular press. By turns, it was funny, deadly serious, or both at once.

Recommended.
