Review: Black Panther: A Nation Under Our Feet, Book 1 by Ta-Nehisi Coates and Brian Stelfreeze

Black Panther: A Nation Under Our Feet Book 1 - Ta-Nehisi Coates, Brian Stelfreeze

Absolutely outstanding. In the first three pages, I realized that this was the best written comic I've ever picked up, and by the end, I realized it was the most smartly written, deeply emotionally intelligent, with such complex storytelling. If there were any complaint I had, it would be that, reading the trade paperback, it was extremely padded with extra material int he form of concept art and even a reproduction of T'Challa's very first appearance; I'd say fully a third was extra material, which wouldn't have been so bad if I'd realized in advance. The story ended so abruptly because of it, but the good news is that it left me wanting so much more!
