Library Journal Review

With the critically acclaimed Coates (National Book Award winner for 2015's Between the World and Me) as writer, superhero-king T'Challa faces revolution throughout his hi-tech African realm of Wakanda. Led partly by two renegades of the Dora Milaje, the king's elite female bodyguards, the people seek no longer to be ruled by "one man" but by elected representatives. Uneasy and protective of his historic power, T'Challa thinks to double down in fighting the insurgents even as his stepmother counsels him to give more to the people. Three-dimensional characters plus universal political and philosophical questions drive this drama in compelling directions. The bodyguards, fully realized badass fighters, are also lovers. The beautiful art by Stelfreeze (Day Men) blends African elements with stylized and futuristic designs, enhanced by Martin's vibrant coloring. An entertainingly serious political thriller more than a superhero adventure, this thoughtful and complex Black Panther incarnation draws on prior Marvel-world events without requiring background knowledge. Verdict Coates's involvement will attract new readers interested in his nonfiction and current social issues. Fans can also look forward to the forthcoming spin-off, Black Panther: World of Wakanda, Vol. 1, which focuses on the Dora Milaje. Adults and teens.-Martha Cornog, Philadelphia © Copyright 2016.
