Read Black Panther by Christopher Priest: The Complete Collection, Vol. 1 Online Free - Black Panther reinvented as a sharp and witty political satire? Believe it! T’Challa is the man with the plan as 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 in 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? Hold onto your pants, because Ross sure can’t! Collecting BLACK PANTHER (1998) #1-17.

Alright. I didn't quite love-love everything about this, but it had a pretty decent fun factor to it. To me, the 1st volume (The Client) started out strong, but as everything progressed...? Meh, it just petered out.
The biggest problem (for me) was that due to the wonky way the story was told, I k...

I bought this one (thankfully on sale, heavily marked down) three and a half months ago and I’ve since managed to read 202 pages out of 383. That’s after numerous times of stop-start reading, forcing myself on, and I’ve only just now passed the halfway mark! This is a Marvel comic, not War and fu...

Finally! What a mammoth book to read.
I got this on sale and I thought to myself "I've never read a black panther book before, but absolutely love the character in all the avenger comics and everything else he appears in. He's badass! Must give this a go!"
So I didn't hype this up to my...

The Client (1-5). A brilliant work, ever bit as great as Priest's contemporary work on Quantum & Woody, and if anything, this is the comic that has more depth to it. The storytelling is phenomenal, with a fun first-person narrative that totally screws with chronology (and convention). Priest...

The ultra-serious Black Panther comes to America to settle a few things, with the Whitest White Guy Ever at his side. The content is torn between the serious plot and the White Guy's dorky retelling. This just hit my sweet spot, I think.

Lately, when comic book fans talk about the Black Panther, they often reference the Christopher Priest run. Having read both this and the Ta-Nehisi Coates run, I have to assume it read better in the early 2000's.
I'm not an art snob when it comes to comics, but this book made me realize I still ha...

Excellent read. I'll get the bad out of the way first: the art. The art over the first major arc is (to me) brilliant because it's done in a realistic fashion with Panther and the Milaje appearing almost as if they'd stepped off a movie screen. Then the artist is changed and it becomes more of a...

This disappointed me a little. I'd heard a lot of good things about Priests Black Panther run, and decided to give it a read since Black Panther is the movie break out character of the year. But it feels like he's barely in it. Most of the book is told, and not really all that well, through the p...

Twenty years on, with several of its concepts now firmly lodged in pop culture via a hit film, how does Priest's Black Panther run read? Very well, I think. Priest's storytelling style - proudly non-linear, with big blocks of prose narration - was unique in 1998 and remains highly distinctive; th...

Amazon prime made this possible. Read in 24 hours. Man of honor like Captain America, with much more responsibility on his shoulders. Achebe, highly entertaining. More Achebe!
Luke Cage was in here. Netflix show does him more justice with character. Danny Rand was in here too. Using Tae bo...
