Which is why it's so frustrating because Folks will see how badass Tchalla is going to be in the movies (knocking head's in his Solo, and a SWaD version in the Avengers movie, potentially Hickmans Black dwarf vs T'Challa fight) they Will get hyped, pick up Coates run... And watch him struggling to handled zlisters and nobodies. Literally powerless nobodies, while being up staged and talked down to by his supporting cast. And People are gonna go "WTF this isn't the guy fron the movies"

Yeah, I've said the same thing. It's going to feel like a cruel "bait n' switch" when fans of the movie pick up the POS Coates run.

I will say for Ewing he had held on for this long despite his story practically screeching to a halt in Ultimates 4. So for what 20 issues almost and no direction on story he had managed to keep the book going ontop of having absolute dog crap art.

I would let him do a mini. A second BP Story while the main solo has a writer of Much Better quality

I actually forgot there was a black panther solo... got so warped up in all the good news..

25k is a bit disappointing don't you think?  I was expecting a bigger drop off...

Shaving 2gs a month off just wouldn't do.  We gotta double that attrition...
How many leaders you said you needed then left em for dead?
Is it Moses, is it Huey Newton or Detroit Red?
Is it Martin Luther, JFK, shooter you assassin
Is it Jackie, is it Jesse, oh I know, its King T'Challa, oh!

When ish hit the fan, is you still a fan?

He tanked Royals too though.

He drops a few continuity nuggets in for the hardcores to keep them "happy" and get praises on CBR and reddit but then blows the main story.

I don't think he's written a compatent story since the first arc of Mighty Avengers.

(i never read New Avengers so i might be wrong there)

I can't blame Walker on this one. The book is solid, imho, and this is far from a relatively unknown property. . This one is on the fans.

Either they put their money where their mouths are, or books like Luke's will continue tanking.

No reason for Luke's book to be tanking this early except for the fans not showing up.

especially considering the Iron Fist solo is doing decent (still over 20K this month) with some unknown writer

To make matters worse, Luke's books isn't doing well digitally either.

The fans let Luke down.

Looking at those numbers makes me wonder when someone is going to realize the market can't handle 200plus books a month!

Shaving 2gs a month off just wouldn't do.  We gotta double that attrition...

I can see it now:

"Coates' Panther run is a hit! It only lost 2000 readers last month!"  ;D
