ISBN 0-7851-0829-7 Finally Marvel have come up with a Black super hero who’s an African warrior to be proud of.
For those who love comic books the series has everything one would expect from Marvel and more.
For untold generations, the Black Panther kings of the technologically advanced African nation of
Wakanda have ruled their people through an unprecedented period of peace and prosperity. But when
T’Challa became king, the Wakandans learned of the world outside their nation-and the rest of the
world learns of the amazing riches to be found in Wakanda. Since that day, King T’Challa has fought
alone against those who would plunder his people and nation.
Like the jungle cat whose image he bears, the Black Panther needs to remain one step ahead of his
enemies at all times. He must be secretive and at times aloof, to the bewilderment of his friends
and those who consider him an ally in the super-hero community. Along the way he has forged a life
as a king, warrior and sometimes super hero.
The illustrations are excellent and children and adults will enjoy following the African warrior as
he defends his kingdom of Wakanda.
