    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 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 André Lima Araújo, an utter dud of a two-pa...

    I really like the way that Okorafor writes Wakanda. This collection of three comic singles was great, probably my favorite of the Black Panther universe, with the Shuri (2018-) ongoing series (also by Okorafor) being a very close second. "Blackout", "The Sacrifice", and "Obinna's F...

    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...

    Black Panther and Nnedi Okorafor...sold. Great story, I wasn't a huge fan of the artwork well some of it. The story was worth it. I loved the very Lovecraftian monster in the first story. Cool stuff. ...

    A Cthulhu-inspired creature is loosed upon Wakanda and causes (somehow) the first power outage in the city in recent memory. This results in T'challa and his guards visiting a "mute zone" outside the city where a former girlfriend of his is now Chief. #relatable? The story is really qu...

    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...

    I had to read a graphic novel for one of my reading challenges so of course I had to go with one of the ones that Nnedi Okorafor had written. I coudn't find Shuri so this was the next best choice. I liked the illustrations and the storylines were okay. I've decided there's a read mo...

    Okorafor: a VASTLY better comics writer than Ta-Nehisi Coates. Loving it. ...

    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...

    I love Nnedi Okorafor's books, but most of this collection seemed fairly uninspired and the pacing just felt weird. The last story, though, redeemed the whole volume. "Under the Bridge" was much more what I would expect of Okorafor: a story with interesting characters where the setting...

    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'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...

    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. ...

    This is the first Black Panther book I?ve ever read. But I had to put some thought into where to start since I?m not familiar with the current MARVEL timeline and?like the many comic book publisher?s universes?it?s a bit of a mess. So I decided to start with my girl Nned...

    This was just meh for me. Maybe too focused on the vibranium? I liked the issue with Ngozi in Lagos, but was not as excited by the others. But still hype to get Okorafor's Shuri series. ...

    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...

    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...

    actually, 4+ stars, but if coates gets leniency, more so will okorafor. plus, "keep your friends close", the weakest story, was not hers. the african feel is finally here! it's not just about having a story with some dark-skinned characters, it's the plants, the decor, the books (s...

    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. ...

    I did not realize this would feature three separate stories by different creative teams. I thought the first one was the strongest. André Lima Araújo's art has a Franco-Belgian-esque ligne claire style that is very atypical for Marvel, but is something I personally love; and I felt t...

    I'm not sure what the point of this book was, to be honest. It featured three stories, all connected to Wakanda and the Black Panther, all of which would have fit into the 'World of Wakanda' book. It's like they relaunched 'World of Wakanda' with a new title and hoped nobody would noti...

    This was my first time in Wakanda (outside of the movie), and I was drawn to this particular outing because I have been meaning to check out The Black Panther and I have loved everything else I have read of Okorafor's... So this seemed a good opportunity. This was pretty good, definite...
