5 Stars by any count..
The war with the Kingpin heats up - with two issues hitting this month! Lady Bullseye and Typhoid Mary are out to kill T'Challa...time to call in Falcon and Luke Cage! The former King of Wakanda and the former Kingpin of crime wage in a deadly game, with the Panther's homeland as the prize!
what Mr. Liss has done here is stunning. He has continually taken what he was given and crafted contingincy plans and stradegy that T'challa himself would be proud of. From Where Liss' run started to where this book ends is amazing. Mr Liss has given the fans what they wanted and more. From wonderful original villians like vlad and the american panther. To the return of fan favorites Hunter and the near return of Casper Cole. Liss took our beloved hero from where he was left after a unsettling doom war and returned him to the precipice of reclaimed glory. Sadly it apears the story will be left short. But what has been coming out has been what i consider amazing entertainment. But who knows, maybe this is all a part of a grand plan
The issue starts out with Panther franticly trying to protect the Wakandan National the Kingpin is after. Through some various impravasations Panther feels like he eludes Typhoid Mary and Lady Bullseye by stricking a pool of gas with a spark off of a thrown sword. It felt kinda weak at the time, and is the one sticking point to me... typhoid mary aint scared of fire.. and as a person who works on cars, when they are tipped over they dont really leak gas like that.. but what ever, later we learned it was orchastrated by Kingpin and went down how he wanted it.. so i can let it go
Panther zeros in on the 4th wakandan missing.. below panther sneaks up on the Hand who is protecting the 4th BOD member who is complicite with the kingpin... from here Liss weaves a buetiful yarn in the Christopher Priestian style
at this point i was personally smilling ear to ear.. the sight of wakanda today and to hear of its recent plight, it was a nice payoff.. then liss went and did this.. panther sitting down and playing chess with the kingpin was to much for me.
The book is so smooth, fun, and smart. I cant believe they are ending this when its getting this good!
Please.. give this comic a chance.. its a 2.99 book. try the last 5 issues of Mr Liss' run and tell me black panther aint cool. The guy has everything people say they are looking for in a modern hero
