BONUS REVIEW by PASTOR SAM
Outside of Walking Dead, I can’t think of a book being published in recent memory where at the end of the issue I found myself thinking, “Wow, I want to know what happens next!” – until now. I’m wracking my brain trying to figure out how author David Liss is going to get out of the corner he’s written himself into. All considered, this Black Panther is the rental car that I’m not sure I want to give back when the work is done. While this particular story arc is coming to a close soon, my hope is that Liss continues to explore the supporting cast in future stories and breathes new life into an old run-down neighborhood. It’s nice to know that when Black Panther finally leaves, the place will be better than when he got there.
