Although I thought that the confrontation against Doctor Doom was inevitable, this is the type of comic book I like to read. I expect the hero to be perfect and always right, only to be proven wrong just like the star of the book. The Black Panther, for all his brains acted as a jerk toward his wife. It troubled me not because he was acting so strange to a woman who is his equal in combat, if not more experienced, but because I worried about their union! I genuinely worried about the fate of their marriage if they were gonna argue like this when they fight villains. Only a good writer can make me feel this close to comic book characters. And I must add, only a good writer can convince me that the engagement of Black Panther and Storm could be in trouble, when months ago, I thought their pairing was bad.
A new inker is working on the series, enacting a style different from Klaus Janson’s sketchy inks. It works as Eaton is still here and continuously draws the best Strom in years.
