    A bit uneven at times and the last issue was a one shot that was unrelated to the rest the of the series (a BP/Venom mashup from a different Earth). An OK read. ...

    (read as single issues) A bit of an odd mini-series--the issues not written by Nnedi don't seem to fit in? Still, overall a fun read and I can't wait for Nnedi's Shuri comic! ...

    I wanted to read this book purely for Nnedi Okorafor's ability to spin word magic. She works her stoic charm here to a certain extent with the first story and the other two (not helmed by her) are pretty decent too. All three tales explore issues beyond how infallible the Black Panther...

    I love Ta Nehisi Coates as writer and thinker but had to abandon his Black Panther run; it wasn?t great comics. All talk and philosophy, and not action, or too much set-up for action that I might have seen if I had been patient for it. Okorafor, the author of Binti and Akata Witch, m...

    Wakanda is viewed as a utopia with enough resources of all. Nnedi Okorafor peels back the curtain to gift us with stories that challenge that perspective. What if the real danger to Wakanda came from within? What if Wakanda?s benevolence was really selfishness? I don?t normally rea...

    Fun but uneven collection. The six-parter was originally promoted as a Nnedi Okorafor miniseries, and it wasn't until three issues in that I discovered it's actually three separate stories: an entertaining three-parter by Nnedi Okorafor and Andrť Lima Araķjo, an utter dud of a two-pa...

    I don't know what the deal was with this series, but I am now suspicious of the sticker on the front saying, "FIRST TIME IN PRINT." That phrase is meant to advertise it as special or limited in some way, but I think now that it's akin to converting a made-for-TV movie to VHS and hoping...

    I love Nnedi Okorafor as an author in general, and the perspective she brings to this franchise in particular. This is certainly worth the read, if Black Panther comics are your thing. ...

    The description of this TPB is misleading. Nnedi Okorafor only wrote half of the stories in this trade. If okorafor had wrotten the entire trade I would hahve given this a high rating. Because Okorafor does something that is rarely done with T'Challa nowadays. A little humor and hum...

    This was interesting. The first 5 issues, about Black Panther in Wakanda were ok, even though the two issues not written by Nnedi Okorafor were significantly less strong. The stories were just too short and everything wrapped up quickly enough that the stakes didn't get particularly hi...

    While all of the stories were great, I bought this because of Ngozi and I just love her story and I can't wait to read more about it. ...

    Okarafor's issues, even the Venom one, are great. Had this been a 6 issue run where she could really craft a deep arc, I think it would have been a wonderful book. The "filler" Covington issues feel a bit like a corny Saturday morning cartoon in comparison. I look foreward to Okora...

    I can't tell if this is all ages, Black Panther continuing continuity or movie tie in. The final chapter doesn't even have Panther in it. ...

    I've been loving the Black Panther series for a while and I was really excited when I saw that Nnedi was going to be picking up the storyline. I still did enjoy this, but of all her books I think it's my least favorite. You can tell this is a transition piece between story lines. It mo...

    Nnedi Okorafor?s authorial voice comes through in this book, particularly with the unplugged community in Wakanda and the visit to Nigeria. But this one somehow felt simultaneously talky and punchy, keeping it from being exceptionally moving. Fast paced and an easy read ? worth you...

    Aug 12, 2018
    Three unconnected Black Panther tales, the best by far being Nnedi Okorafor's quick story of Black Panther conquering a purple monster from the hinterlands. I appreciated that Okorafor told a full, fast-paced story that didn't rely on endless philosophizing and dialogue like Ta-Nehisi ...

    Black Panther has itself a host of seriously amazing authors - Ta-Nehisi Coates and now NNEDI OKORAFOR?! I *love* her! Binti practically changed my life. And she added some of her special magic to T'Challa as well. I don't know if this was a one-off or what, but I'd love to see more fr...

    I was skeptical because I haven't really liked anything Marvel has done with BP in at least half a decade, probably longer. This book was just a delight though. It's just three short stories that aren't concerned with the fate of the universe or anything. It was so nice. ...

    I so wanted to love this, but I found the story to be weak although less confusing than the Ta Nehisi Coates' Black Panther I read last year. Read for my 2018 Reading Challenge and 2019 Hugo Nominations ...

    The first three issues make this entire volume worth the read. The other two stories seemed a little flat in comparison, the second one feeling very standard comic book, while the last is good, but follows a character I am in no way familiar with, granted Ngozi is a bit interesting, bu...

    An assembled volume of what were apparently webcomics originally. The first story (the one with the blackouts) is more of a "width and breadth of the World of Wakanda" outing, where the character of the Black Panther nevertheless comes through for an ending. It's good, and features man...

    As a newbie in the Wakanda universe, I found these stories as a good first dive into this black utopia. It didn't blow my mind, but I sure want to know more. ...

    I had been looking forward to this because I love Okorafor's Binti trilogy, and since the Black Panther movie I've been wanting to dive more and more into Wakanda. This volume leads with a 3-part story by Okorafor, and it is good. It shows the humor and compassion of the King of Wak...

    I am incredibly excited that Nnedi Okorafor brought the characteristic magic and brilliance of her novel and short fiction writing to the graphic medium in Black Panther: Long Live The King. Okorafor delves into the most technologically advanced society on Earth: the kingdom of Wak...

    Actual review: 3.5 Although decent, the stakes weren't high enough for me to make this series interesting. I enjoyed the artwork, but the story lacked something big. Everything was solved pretty quickly. ...

    A somewhat disappointing story. The idea was great and the drawings are amazing, but it's hard to understand why the hell there is a hiatus between #2 and #5 and a completely different story in #3 and #4. The main story should have received more issues, because it had the potential to ...
