This was okay.

I’m not very literate when it comes to the comic book world—especially with Marvel. So, I’m sure this is much better than a lot of comic spin offs out there.

The only thing I can really compare this to is Nnedi Okorafor’s previous Black Panther: Long Live The King volume (which is the only other Black Panther comic I’ve read as of this review). Shuri’s first volume had a lot of really interesting elements—especially when it came to Nnedi’s awesome cultural details such as the Boabab tree. But I think I enjoyed Long Live The King way more than this volume.

Nnedi will always be my girl, and I am very interested in continuing to read and even purchase the upcoming Shuri comics. But this was just okay the first time through. Maybe if I let it simmer and give it another read it will stand out a bit more.
