I picked up the last copy at my shop and just finished reading my pile for this week. This was a great read! My favorite of this week, and that includes the Hellboy Mexico one-shot!  :o

I was totally into this from beginning to the end. I loved seeing the friendship between Azari and Steve grow while everyone else is getting suspicious of Azari's acceptance of Steve. Gabe isn't a big character in this and his narrations are pretty slim, but his part in this is very interesting as he's conflicted as a proud U.S. soldier and as a proud black man who is starting to look up to the Black Panther and Wakanda as a black man's paradise.

I'm really enjoying the Nazi side of this also. I really don't like that this is only 4 issues. I find this to be a really well written issue and the battle at the gates of Wakanda was exciting as hell with the good Captain fighting side-by-side with Panther and some lovely afro-rocking Doras. Azari with those blades, whooo!

Reggie, you got my attention!

Thanks guys.  It's great to be writing the character again after a break, and working with Denys really fired me up.  His art inspires my writing.

I think after seeing that battle scene, I can totally see that.

Stuff I liked: Nice to see that even in Wakanda brothers will still be brothers. If S’yan was the smart one that might explain a lot. Just sayin’.

It doesn’t seem that the Wakandans think all that much of the Howlers do they? ;D

Master Man and Warrior Woman are pretty tough customers and will give our heroes a rough time(the good guys are frankly outpowered now) Now Tiger-Man? That’s just messed up. But I bet the rest of the captives talked after they saw THAT.  :o

Some historical context: If this is set in ’41 America had been just fine with the Nazis and Fascist Italy before Pearl Harbor. A. Philip Randolph had been dissuaded from marching on Washington. There was also a huge Labor movement. The war brought all these disparate elements against a common enemy. This is why Black Panther/Azzri keeps taking about Cap’s personal values. Steve would have inevitably had to take sides in a post war America. Cap in a sense was lucky he slept thru it all.

The continuity fascists are going to tear their hair out trying to figure out where this story fits exactly in Cap’s history. The fact that it doesn’t really matter all that much will be utterly lost on them and will only enrage them if it is brought up. So I intend to do so elsewhere first chance I get.  ;D

I am really enjoying this stuff.

I put a review on CBR. I thought this was awesome. The best book I read this week easy...and easily on par with UXM crossover issue that came out this week.

I really enjoyed this issue, I like there battle/action scenes.. Azzari the Wise mentoring & talks with Steve R. were great also..
Young S'Yan & T'Chaka scenes were my favorite.. I love to read a mini on young teen/young adult  S'yan, T'Chaka, Zuri, N'Yami & etc lives... The only thing didn't like was that we didn't get to see the fight of Azzari & Steve R. finish..

Also am I one who thought this was a ''younger'' N'Gassi? Also does anyone know T'Chaka & S'Yan mother name?

great issue, really good stuff...

...I liked the nod to knowing Steve's identity via spies, touched on in the previous Panther annual..

...I wonder is Gabriel going to even get the chance to be a spy for Fury?  and if he does, would Azzari be hip to it?  Hmm..

I wonder will Gabriel get a trophy/gift by the time he and the crew leaves Wakanda?

...What are the strength levels of Master Man & Warrior Woman?  do they cast energy bolts?  Do they both fly?

Yes, you're welcome ... now what about asking Marvel to get you to do a Patriot comic?

Come on Reggie, give the brother a chance at a decent comic.
