Black Panther / John Ridley's Black Panther series
« on: December 26, 2021, 02:57:00 am »
Just read issue no. 1. Pretty refereshing for me which is much due to no more of Coates boring writing. How is everyone else liking it?  Who do you think is responsible for taking out the Wakanda sleeper agents?

Black Panther / Avengers Tech-On Avengers
« on: October 29, 2021, 11:14:25 am »
Anyone checked this one out?

If you dug Avengers Mech Strike, you may dig this. Red Skull plays Thanos with similar powers to the Infinity Gauntlet that allow him to make all heroes powerless thus Tony Starks creating mech suits for all Avengers to defeat him. One of the best parts is T'challa coming to the rescue to save everyone however his intelligence is downplayed again as when Starks refers to himself as the greatest mind, Spider-Man asks if he is Reed Richards while T'challa was in the room at the same time. Also, while Mech-Strike had T'challa and Starks creating the suits together, this story only indicates it was all Starks. Other than that, great story with fantastic art, I love the anime stylings.

Hudlin TV / What If Killmonger saved Tony Stark episode (spoilers)

"Why wear the uniform of your oppressors?"
"You have to be a part of the system to change it"
-War Machine
""Nah, you can burn it down"
This ep solidifies Killmonger as the best villain in the MCU even if they pretty much turned him into a more intelligent Moses Magnum

Really dug this ep, how many times T'challa gotta be killed in the MCU though? Sheesh

New figure is already sold out!

Milestone Media / OG Blood Syndicate issue 1
« on: August 30, 2021, 11:15:01 am »
DC Milestone was the best when it came out. Seen so many racy comics that have come out since that are extreme for extreme's sake and have shock value for lack of creativity in many Punisher and other Garth Ennis related material as well as things like Stormwatch and The Authority and the Elite but Blood Syndicate is the OG and everything in this series had a reason for it and was necessary, from Wise Son's cursing to all the extreme violence. Best part is when the reporter gets her head blown off and Flashback goes back in time for 3 seconds to save her. Holocaust just says to Flashback "tell your friend to be more careful" after he burns a man into ashes. McDuffie was ahead of his time and his career later showed and proved that. Cover art by Cowan and Palmiotti as well as pencils by Black Lightning alumni Trevor Von Eeden are all icing on the cake to one of the best issue no. 1 comics ever!

Other Comics / Batman 89

got the reg and variant issues of Batman 89. I also remember that Marlon Wayans was to play Robin who I think shows up in this series as well. I'm pretty sure that's him at the end of the first issue.

Black Panther / anyone read Avengers Mech Strike?
« on: August 18, 2021, 09:27:37 am »
Avengers Mech Strike with Kang as the antagonist has some pretty interesting developments happen with T'challa and Thanos. Not sure if any of these things get referenced in the main Avengers comics but they certainly are significant.

Hudlin TV / T'challa as Star Lord in What If ep 2
« on: August 18, 2021, 09:24:05 am »
What did y'all think? Something about 2 actors that have played T'challa in some capacity sharing scenes together.

Does anyone know if that picture ever came out as a poster? I have extra copies of the sealed poly bagged issue 1 of the original Static, Hardware, Icon and Blood Syndicate that I was going to open and put the the picture together on a wall, however the issues are worth more when sealed and if there is a poster that can be obtained I would prefer that as last time I put the picture together they don't line up that nicely.

Milestone Media / What is the best way to contact Reginald Hudlin?
« on: July 09, 2021, 10:37:47 am »
Does he still respond to msgs on this forum? We have our own Black owned bookstore called Grassrootz in Phoenix, AZ and anyone who knows about how to go about reaching him to do a signing or how to get Milestone comics in bulk please assist. We would like to get these comics in our store.

Black Panther / The Ebony Blade
« on: June 29, 2021, 05:15:04 pm »
Is there a comic that explains how it got back in the possession of Dane from when T'challa had it in Hudlin's run?

This is really a treasure of a find if you can get a copy as it features the first meeting btwn T'challa and Storm in comics, 25 years before Reginald Hudlin would have them marry in his Black Panther run. The FF/Spiderman story is written by Chris Claremont with art done by Frank Miller while the Black Panther/ Storm story "Cry Vengeance" has Claremont on the script again with John Byrne doing the pencils. It's a story you can't think too hard about or it will have you asking why anyone tries to fight Storm with how OP she is controlling the weather and wonder why as a king and a diplomat in a foreign country, why does T'challa just not contact authorities when there is a threat on his life. That wouldn't make too great of a story though. Still don't quite understand how a bullet shot from a rifle of a would be assassin just bounces off Storm's forehead though (shrugs) A good read I like to revisit now and then when I forget about how the events in it transpired.Seriously though, does Storm have some Kal-El abilities I am not familiar with because I'm trying to understand how a bullet from an assassin's rifle just bounces off her forehead and only gives her a headache and no blood or nothing.  She got that vibranium forehead balm?

Is it any good?

Black Panther / Black Panther 25,'s OVER!
« on: June 06, 2021, 07:52:21 am »
Wow......what a mess! It has been excruciating reading Black Panther these last 5 years with Coates at the helm. The finale had a lot of fireworks with many familiar faces of some of our favorite Black Marvel characters like other previous issues (Hudlin did it better) but ultimately any Black Panther fan can leave this series alone and not have missed out on anything. The sole redeeming factor of the last issue was Kaash Paige's story at the end. I can count on one hand the amount of issues Coates did that I liked from the last 5 years. The only elements Coates really added to the mythos that stood out was the vibranium suit being able to absorb energy and redirect it which the MCU movie borrowed from but making Shuri an Orisha or whatever the eff was dumb and poorly executed. Coates tried to add elements of African spirituality but not in a way for any reader it was new to to become interested in and do more research on and Wakanda being an African nation never conquered and having a lifestyle portrayed by a couple of Dora Milaje that wasn't part of our culture till colonization had his whole run leaving a bad taste in many mouths from the very beginning. He need to watch Buck Breaking. And don't get me started on the whole intergalactic empire nonsense which was 80s Flash Gordon movie bad. I don't know which was worse, the take on Luke in the Last Jedi or T'challa in his own book from the last 5 years. Everyone who wrote T'challa in stories outside of his own book from the last 5 years understood T'challa better than Coates from Avengers, Agents of Wakanda, BP vs Deadpool, Ultimates, War of the Realms, Wakanda Forever and even as recent as Immortal Hulk 87. Readers can skip The Crew and World of Wakanda as well, they were trash. Black Panther was very weak throughout Coates whole run seemingly always needing help. Looking forward to what Ridley has to offer. The Alex Rosss cover already looks great! As long as we can get the T'challa from Agents of Wakanda or Avengers and Ultimates, I'll make mine Marvel again. Good riddance Coates!
