In the wake of Shadowland, there's a new protector of Hell's Kitchen! He has no kingdom, no vibranium, and no high-tech safety net--just bloody knuckles and the will to prove himself in a foreign land where the fiercest of jungle predators stalks the most dangerous urban prey! His name is T'Challa, and in the aftermath of Shadowland, he will create a new life, a new identity, and learn what it is to be a different kind of hero. But with Daredevil gone, the bad guys are coming out to play, and a new nemesis--Vlad the Impaler--plots his bloody rise to power. Be there as national best-selling author and Edgar Award Winner David Liss and the pulp master Francesco Fracavilla (Zorro, Green Hornet) begin a shocking new chapter for the world's most dangerous man! 32 PGS.

I’m usually pretty good at fielding people’s Daredevil questions, but when my friend the infamous “Shankor” asked if I could help him find the other 512 issues of “Black Panther: The Man without Fear” I was at a loss. The best I could tell him was that I would take a look at the next Con. Admittedly, I wanted to go into this nominal atrocity hating it with every fiber of my red-stained soul. And yet, I could not. The writing to be found here is superb. The villain is a Romanian Hans Gruber (tis the season for a Die Hard reference). In fact, the only weak link arguably is the art, and that’s just due to preference not lack of quality. It’s truly a shame that Marvel didn’t have more confidence in the creative team to take a chance on giving this its own numbering. In this case the old adage olds true… “Once you go…”
