REVIEW: Black Panther And The Agents Of Wakanda #4 — “The Kind Of Science Adventure That You’ve Been Waiting For”

Marvel Comics, creative team: Jim Zub, Lan Medina, Craig Yeung, Marcio Menyz, Erick Arciniega, Joe Sabino

Here we go, this is the kind of science adventure that you’ve been waiting for. In the words of Stefon, this issue has everything: sex with planets, dream sequences, great action sequences, genocide, award ceremonies! There is a mystery on earth’s only natural satellite and the solution is much different than anyone expects. New recruit Mockingbird gets a chance to shine, and we find out that Gorilla-Man’s fantasies are mean to him. Jim Zub’s script packs a lot of interesting things into this very creative issue that leans heavily on continuity in a way that’s still accessible to newer readers. The art from Medina, Yeung, Menyz, Arcienega and Sabino takes elements that would have gotten gross in other books and handled it subtly, while sensibly turning down what could have been very hentai vibes on a smarter Black Mercy-styled threat. This book has a Tom Strong meets Agents of SHIELD vibe, but not in a derivative way, so it’s a real page turner. RATING: BUY.

BLACK PANTHER AND AGENTS OF WAKANDA #4
(W) Jim Zub (A) Lan Medina (CA) Jorge Molina
T’Challa and Okoye have assembled an eclectic team of spies, mercenaries, and super heroes who specialize in espionage, black-ops, and defense. These Agents of Wakanda must be ready for any threat to our planet…even if that threat is the Moon itself!
What?! What kind of lunar-cy is this?!  You must not miss – God Loves, Moon Kills!
