A few things to note about these first few pages of Black Panther #1 by Ta-Nehisi Coates and Brian Stelfreeze.
First, it is very much set in Marvel continuity, based on what has come before. A different approach to, say, Reginald Hudlin’s reworking of the character a few years ago.
A Nation Under Our Feet subtitled “Black Political Struggles in the Rural South from Slavery to the Great Migration” was a Pulitzer Prize-winning book from 2003 by Steven Hahn. And, indeed, this comic concerns itself with a violent uprising in Wakanda, set off by a superhuman terrorist group called the People.
Note the Black Panther mask assembles itself out of Jack Kirby tech, a nod to his co-creator.
I thought that’s what monarchies were for…
