I really loved this book and I felt that Liss did extremely well considering what he was shackled with visavis what we presume Marvel's Editorial mandate for TChalla was. I liked Jefte Paolo's BP by far the most and he should definitely have stayed as the heavy lifter for the art of the book, and it's sooo frickin sad that BPMDA is ending. Liss, I am sure, would have really crushed craniums had he had another year or two to run BPMDA. Liss' TChalla wasn't my RH hardcore BLACK Panther, but he was still a baaaad mutha--watch yo mouf! Looved seeing his brilliance on display, although I still think that TChalla without his powers would one-sidedly mop Wilson Fisk. I liked the appearance of the mercenary OVERDRIVE a whole lot, and I like how Liss handled Typhoid and Lady Bullseye. I like that TChalla is shown being very quick and agile, something that too many writers have gotten away from (even my beloved CJP and RH imho didn't emphasize the true speed,agility, grace, fluidity,lightning quickness and feline power of TChalla in a way that he needed to be; he should be routinely pulling off stunts emphasizing his awesome acrobatics and all of that other stuff. Think a combo of NIGHTWING and ULTIMATE BLACK PANTHER when JEPH LOEB wrote TChalla fighting CAP...but our BP would beat CAP down) to the true detriment of the character in many ways. We fans of TChalla know he's allat and then some, but we sure need to have empirical feats that we can regularly point to that underscore and underline that fact in a way that can't be ignored dismissed or overlooked. TChalla outsmarting and just out-whoopalizin The Hand and Typhoid is a good start, but it needed to be more bombastic.
Liss did a terrific job, though, considering all that he was trying to convey in a truncated period of time via the medium he had. I can't complain...not about Liss anyway.
Now what's gonna happen to TChalla? Will he join forces with Steve Rogers?
