This book intrigues me than I actually enjoy it.I like the expansion and exploration of Wakanda s history and culture I like the philosophical aspects I like the artwork I liked the ending to this volume.I m not as keen on the somewhat glacial pacing I didn t like T Challa justifying why he put a team together consisting entirely of black superheroes I felt like the writer was trying to justify his choices to the reader and he really didn t need to It felt false, somehow.Still, like I say, I am [...]
T Challa facing difficulty from within his country seeks help from outside it.A Nation Under Our Feet Book 2 suffers from the same problem as book 1, they are trying to fit a story seemingly made for a novel into a comic There aren t enough bubbles, boxes, or pages to make that all fit The storytelling is simply too slow for a comic book This is essentially volume 2 Only two things have happened and only one problem has been resolved It s just holding my interest enough to continue even though I [...]
Book 2 is action packed than Book 1 We ve often been told that the Panther is a king, but this series is the first time I can recall where we ve actually gotten a sense of what that means Coates gives us a sense of the real responsibilities of kingship, what it means to the people of Wakanda to have their leader off on adventures with the Avengers and so on I think my favorite scene in the whole book was the confrontation with Zeke Stane The book is rounded out by some classic reprints from the [...]
un en events africandeThis book is the second trade paperback of Ta Nehisi Coates Black Panther and finally everything is starting to click in the right direction creatively We find T Challa on the back foot as the rebellion against him on two fronts is no longer manageable by him alone He makes a further bad gamble that his enemies capitalize on and use to further undermine his legitamcy with the Wakandan people Luckily, being an Avenger has its perks At the same time, the comatose Shuri is fin [...]
Again, it had potential but it s all over the place OVERALL GRADE C plus to B minus.
Still not sure about this There are things that I like the Panther s voice , political problems in the kingdom Right now the theme seems to be about leadership and ruling how do you keep people happy How do you deal with rebellious people, a gentle hand of friendship or the iron fist of retaliation For some reason, I m having a problem following the multiple subplots I don t think it s me, having read and watched many things like this I suspect it is the writing, but I can t pinpoint what the pr [...]
Pleasure reading shouldn t feel like a chore 3 stars out of respect for the art and the world building, but that s as far as it goes for me.
Great potential in the story here such a cool world but the storytelling and pacing continue to be a challenge for the reader.
Black Panther takes Ezekial Stane out of the equation, brings his Crew of black heroes in briefly, and lots of boring stories between Shuri and her mom before T Challa goes to get her back.The Good Chris Sprouse s art is very good I ve been a fan since his Legion of Super Heroes days.The Bad Coates continues his glacially slow pacing I don t understand how this award winning artist can write such stilted dialogue.The Ugly This is one of the most boring ongoing books I ve ever read Also it s only [...]
Prompted by the excellent new Black Panther film, I m catching up on all of the Ta Nehisi Coates run This second volume continues the political and thematically heavy storyline that finds T Challa struggling with an insurgent group who continue to question his leadership There s also the continuity heavy inclusion of an Iron Man villain that works quite well given the villain s M.O The art here is good, though not as tight and appealing as Brian Stelfreeze s art from the first book My big proble [...]
Well I liked this one better then the first, and the artwork is gorgeous, and 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 grabbing me.
SO GOOD I ve never read such a well written graphic, it s like I m reading a richly dialogue laden novel with beautiful artwork serving as the supporting storyteller which, now that I think on it, is how all graphics should be I skipped the Black Panther throwback snippets after the story ended because I heard they were terrible and the artwork was just so outdated, it was a huge turn off I assumed the text would feel the same I kind of wish I d waited for this to be released as a compendium, it [...]
Really digging his style would be 5 stars The only thing that really beefs me is that this volume was only 3 issues Some might argue that they provide older issues to supplement the lack of issues, but I don t know To me it seems like Marvel has no problem donating money to an ethically bankrupt administration and charging nerds to cover the bill
This actually has two different portions one written by Ta Nehisi Coates and an older story line originally written by Stan Lee I found the portion written by Coates to be rather slow moving with the Black Panther being given to long winded soliloquys and too much introspection It made me think of Hamlet if he was an Avenger To be honest, I m new to the Black Panther stories, but, from the Avengers Civil War movie, I ve been under the impression that Black Panther is a man of action so I expecte [...]
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.
Ta Nehisis Coates writerChris Sprouse illustratorAnother solid effort from writer Coates He makes progress towards becoming a good comic book writer in this volume, but still has a ways to go Sprouse takes over on pencils for Stellfreeze, who handled art in volume one Sprouse does a solid job, and his style is very similar to Stellfreeze The story still tends to move a little slowly and the world building, while impressive in scope and epic in tone, tends to drag the pace down even and make it [...]
Ta Nehisi Coates continua sua empreitada para dar uma cara mais verossimilhante a T Challa, o rei de Wakanda, tamb m conhecido como o super her i Pantera Negra Entretanto quem rouba a cena nesse segundo volume n o T Challa, mas sua irm Shuri Ela est presa no Djalia, o local que guarda toda a mem ria do povo Wakandano L ela se fortalece para vencer seu estado atual literamente entre a vida e a morte No Djalia, Shuri guiada pela M e, uma avatar griot que se assemelha muito a ela As duas trocam his [...]
Another powerful narrative by Ta Nehisi Coates that explores the complexity of the Black Panther and ideas of kingship, citizenship, and critical belonging Coates opens up critical questions about revolution and belonging, nationhood and resistance, proposing a rethinking of the notion of nationality itself Coates Black Panther is a character who is caught between multiple identities and roles that he has to perform from the super heroic to the role of king and his own emotional depth as a perso [...]
A much satisfying experience than the first volume, in which Coates seems to be settling in to the subtly different art of writing comics rather than prose, and the story feels like it s meshing much better with Wakanda as previously seen Though for once, the old issues stuffed in the back to fill out a slender collection really help with that I d never read any of Panther s Rage before, but if that was Coates formative vision of the character where mine was the Priest run, then no wonder I m a [...]
Again this is probably the best written Marvel run right now The basic premise of suggesting that Wakanda is not a peaceful paradise, but a complex, complicated nation with a deep, nuanced history is so refreshing Coates writing is a perfect blend of humor, poetry, and drama To paint a revolution as he does is no easy task, but he pays proper dues to all of the participants and to their philosophies Sometimes you forget you re reading a superhero comic, but then you see that there s no reason th [...]
Coates starts to find his sea legs in this set of issues 7 is particularly good I think he d do better on the Crew as a team book than Black Panther Also his Hickman isms really crank in issue 8.
I read the individual issues when they came out and really enjoyed them, though I was slightly confused at the time I am re reading both this collection and the previous to see how well it all flows as a continuous story.
Read single issues, and these are the ones where it gets hard to wait another month for the next.
Coates earlier work in this book pays off here The story s coming to together, and I m looking forward to the rest of the long term vision.
This one just felt like a slog and I don t know why because I really enjoyed the first one.
Wow Really exceeded my expectation I m honestly excited to read of this I think Coates takes Panther to a whole new level and it s amazing.
This series continues to not blow me away It sucks because there are really cool elements the introduction of The Crew , but they get bogged down in a quagmire of boring subplots that I just can t muster the energy to give a crap about.Artwork continues to be sublime
Shuri s story arc is sooooo good The women shine in this series.
Coates second volume of Black Panther is a somewhat traditional narrative That s in large part because the number of plot threads has been decreased, allowing us to focus on each, rather than spinning crazily through all of them However, we also get some traditional superhero narratives, as the new Crew comes together and fights some super villains.For better or for worst That s hard to say This second volume is readable than the first, but not quite as distinctive Still, it s an interesting [...]
