Long Live the King #5
« on: February 14, 2018, 07:34:39 am »
Started out rough, but she came through in the end.
Got a potential new love interest and a potential new Pokemon if a writer want to go there.

And she is not letting Roxane outshine her. Called her out by name. lol

I only saw the preview, which does read rough..

But it gets getter and potential love interest?  On Valentine's day?  That means I have to check it out, for 2 women in 50 years purposes
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?

I'm just thinking the same thing too especially the way the second issue of her three ended but after reading Arthur issue I'm starting to think while it's definitely not great it's ok (context wise). I'm reread all three of her issues before I completely decide if it's okay or trash for sure..

After reading it it wasn't great the writer seems to be working with a lack of knowledge regarding BP/Wakanda or is just using or was instructed to TNC versions or characterizations which would explain some of the shade.. but like how at the end she tried to clean it up with T'Challa former love interest she introduced.. and in retrospect once again he was somewhat depowered through her whole series some of the Feats BP pulled kind of impressive/cool..
