Great Cover!

The Elephant Trunk, a group of wise women, try to coerce Shuri into taking up the mantle of the Black Panther.

But Princess Shuri refuses, again, to accept the responsibility. Besides, in a previous series, she dies while being the panther.

Anyway, T’Challa’s girlfriend, Storm, comes for a visit. She has been contacted by Chief Okoyo from the Muted Lands.

The chief, who is also an ex-girlfriend of T’Challa, has been following his travels into space, and knows that he is missing.

A really good continuation of the series. I don't know how comic fans do this on a regular basis. Having to wait so long in between editions especially when we only get a snippet of story is killing me!

Great build-up in this issue. I really like what Okorafor is doing for this story. Also, that ending!

I really want to like this series, but this book felt like a hot mess to me. Fingers crossed that it gets better in the next issue, but with the way things ended here it'll have to be quite the change of pace. ...more

That ending added some interest, but wow, this series has been so boring and extremely slow paced. For a plot problem set up in the first couple pages of issue one, these past two issues took way to long to get to anything, and it still feels empty and unsatisfying.

I'm probably not going to continue reading this series, and will wait until she hopefully gets a different better series after this run. It's a shame. I really wanted to be interested in Shuri! However, this series is just ironically
Well, that was unexpected plot twist. I'm here for it. ...more

My Thoughts On: Shuri #2

1. I haven't talked about them yet, but I love the covers so far for this series. I'm particularly in love with this issue's cover by Sam Spratt because I think it particularly captures Shuri's struggle of whether or not she should take up the Black Panther mantle again. However, I think all of the covers of this series depict a confident, strong, cool Shuri and feel perfectly in line with the tone of the character and the story itself.

2. Shuri is perfectly within her rig

“I’ll see you all later” *BURSTS INTO RAVENS. Black Panther And Storm!!!!!!! :)))))) heart > wormhole. I’m always worried she’s lost. I don’t think I get feelings on what exactly might be troubling her but maybe I could never read them when I got them - I’ve never been as in touch with myself as I’d like. So. If mystery is greater than might and heart is greater than wormhole but I want to be a map then I should draw one. Then maybe I should stop talking so much.. is what I’m doing, idk for me i ...more

This one started out well. The Elephant's Trunk was the strongest point, and although I had little sympathy for Shuri's dislike of being asked to fill in for her brother - her mild resentment might be understandable but it's not a particularly compelling character trait - I did enjoy her mother sticking the knife in. (Figuratively, not literally!) The Queen is far more interesting to me than her daughter... So, I liked the first part. If it had gone on in this vein I would likely have given it a ...more

Before I start, can I just say that I adore Shuri? I’m so happy that she got her own series. Not only because she’s amazing (though that is a large chunk of my reasoning) but because I feel like in the past her plots have been so spread out that they’re next to impossible to truly follow. I love seeing her story consolidated into one actual series, with her being the main focus. It’s cool and easier on me, so win-win.
This was a decent issue, on the whole. There was some time spent on building

After watching The Black Panther movie with my grandchildren, I obviously had to pick up the second volume of Nnedi Okorafor’s development of Shuri. The giant space grasshopper is still a problem and the ancestors are still having their say. It is a fun read with a satisfying resolution, but I would not be reading a graphic novel if Okorafor was not the author.
The plot is starting to pick up, though I'm not sure what to think of that ending! I'm loving all the women working together in this series, though it'd be nice if the plot wasn't so heavily centered on T'Challa instead of Shuri. Gosh, these covers are gorgeous! ...more

T’challa is missing. The Queen and the Wakanda leadership would like Shuri to take the role of Black Panther. Shuri does not want to become Black Panther. Shuri goes out to find her brother. Shuri is determined to find her brother’s ship and has enlisted the help of some friends.

Includes a map of Wakanda.

Good color artwork. One of three hundred comics marvel gave out on national read a book day, Sept six . Shurri is collecting women of power to help in the emergency.

Brilliant second issue: Shuri gets help from a few friends in the attempt to find her brother, and she gets quite close.... The last scene is such a surprise and mindblowingly perfect!!!

Love the interaction between all of the women. Love Storm's hair. Love that Shuri has lost that sense of entitlement she used to have.

I like the series so far. Okorafor is a good fit for writing all things Wakanda! I'd like to see her Binti story as a graphic novel.

This series is on track to be the best of the year. The art is fantastic, the colors are magnificent, and the story is brilliant. Shuri shines without just being there to mooch off Black Panter popularity. She's a three-dimension character, as are all the characters in this series. (view spoiler) ...more
