As stunning as volume one. Luscious story—and surprising feminine and motherhood storyline for Wakanda. Loved it. Look at this astounding art.

I am determined to finish these today. Book 3 was due back to the library yesterday and I am only in the middle of book 2. I‘ve just been so tired lately.

The new Black Panther comics written by Ta-Nehisi Coates are good, but the movie is so much better. I got a chuckle out of the classic McGregor/Buckler Black Panther Jungle Action comics included as a bonus at the back: show-wrestling costuming, Isaac Hayes reference, and characters named Venomm and Preyy.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I agree, the movie was so much better! 5y
Lindy @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I think I need a complete narrative arc in the comics in order to make a fair comparison, storywise, but the women acting in the film are just so great; the ones on the page can‘t hold a candle to them. 5y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Lindy Agreed! The ladies in the movie stole the show for me, they were excellent. Honestly I‘d like a movie just of them and skip the Black Panther, LOL! 5y

I was up really late last night (because Trevor Noah - YES!! His stand up routine was brilliantly awesome and hilarious). When I got home from restorative yoga I read for a whopping 11 pgs before falling asleep for 2 hours! 😴

I needed a big cup of caffeine get me through this book, lol. But don‘t let my sleepiness fool you; I liked it much more than the first volume!

Hopefully Black Panther doesn‘t mind the Marvel character mug. #comicthon

I have some background in Black Panther comics, but this was still a little hard to follow. I‘m not sure how I feel yet about Ta-Nehisi Coates venture into the comic genre.

But the illustration were outstanding, and the storyline interesting (although kind of confusing), so this gets a pick from me.

Headed to yoga, and hoping to pick up Vol 2 when I get home!

Dolly Looks like there‘s a bit of kitty yoga going on. 😂what cute little furry paws 🐾 5y
[DELETED] 3803335244 My older kids & hubby just saw the movie and loved it! These look awesome 5y
alisiakae @Dolly This is the cat that has me dissolving into giggles any time I try to do yoga at home, because she walks under me and sticks her tail in my face, or jumps on my back. 😹😼😹 5y
alisiakae @ForeverNerdy I‘m going to see the movie next weekend! 5y

Well I liked this one better then the first, & the artwork is gorgeous, & I love how they are blending myth and legend into futuristic Sci-fi, BUT I still can‘t say it‘s awesome. I‘m beginning to wonder if it‘s Coates, he‘s a great author, but not exactly known for his action/adventure/sci-fi. Maybe they should have tapped Binti‘s Okorafor or The Broken Earth‘s Jemisin instead? I love the world they‘ve created, but this story isn‘t thrilling me.

Gezemice I kind of felt the same way, but it was a pick for me just because it is so intriguing. 5y

I want so badly to love this series, but even after the 2nd book I'm still not that invested. I feel like it was marketed as a jumping in point for Black Panther (which is what I wanted w the movie coming up *squee*) but the story felt disjointed, character motivations were unclear, & I still don't really have a great feel for who the characters are beyond their roles. Disappointed but planning to start World of Wakanda by Coates &Roxanne Gay soon

This was a nice continuation of the first book. I like how traditions and folk lore are weaved together with futuristic technology.

Gorgeous art, ambitious theme, a nation fighting for its freedom, a king struggling to find his role, warring factions, stunning women and men, a celebration of African heritage. This is a lovely volume to look at and ponder, however the story is scattered, the writing is heavy and vague. I will be continuing the series, but I wish I would not have to read everything three times in order to follow the story. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Another fantastic volume--I'm really getting into Black Panther. I can't seem to find ANY more in any library service available to me, maybe Vol 3 hasn't been published yet. I find the world of comics a little hard to navigate.

I'm sure many ppl find comics to be inherently cinematic given the visual medium, but I do not. However, I do find this one to be, especially the 2 frames above. I wish I could see all these stories on the big screen.

Natasha.C.Barnes P.S. I'm so excited for the Black Panther movie but can't seem to stomach other Marvel movies...I just watched the Infinity War trailer bc I knew Wakanda showed up in it and WOW it is amazing how much it does not make me want to see that movie. 5y
JamieArc Volume 3 is published - I bought it for my partner (and I) for Christmas. There is also a World of Wakanda written by Roxane Gay. 5y
Natasha.C.Barnes @JamieArc Thanks! I just looked it up. There are also collected volumes of some other story lines plus a little of BP and the crew, but it seems like you have to buy them!! I cannot find them aaaaanywhere. 😡 5y

One last photo of Womankind magazine. I hope I‘m not annoying anyone but this magazine is not only beautiful it is thought-provoking. The photography is National Geographic worthy too. This issue focuses a lot on Vietnam which makes me happy because it helps me with my #readtheworld goals. #Womankindmag

Tamra Sounds awesome! 5y

Finally finished this one. It‘s not that it isn‘t good or well written because it is and have beautiful artwork. It is me. I just don‘t dig the story. Perhaps if I had read more Avengers and knew how Black Panther fits or had read the original Black Panther comics I would like it more because it is interesting just not my jam.

I think this series is tied for my favorite graphic novel series with Saga. Seriously amazing and I cannot wait until the next installment.

Ta-Nehisi Coates continues to impress in book two of his Black Panther. Although the action continues to be plagued by the weight of the larger Marvel Universe, the story picked up it's pace in this volume considerably. The guest heroes were a great surprise and helped demonstrate how out of his depth T'Challa is right now. Can't wait to see where this goes! #comics #blackpanther

Really digging Coates's Black Panther run so far. Tho not sure why they changed artists after #4, I assume it had to do with falling behind. Alas, enjoyable first 6 issues.
