Art by Brian Stelfreeze

Brian Stelfreeze

A new era for the Black Panther starts here! Written by MacArthur Genius and National Book Award winner TA-NEHISI COATES (Between the World and Me) and illustrated by living legend BRIAN STELFREEZE, "A Nation Under Our Feet" is a story about dramatic upheaval in Wakanda and the Black Panther's struggle to do right by his people as their ruler. The indomitable will of Wakanda -- the famed African nation known for its vast wealth, advanced technology and warrior traditions -- has long been reflected in the will of its monarchs, the Black Panthers. But now the current Black Panther, T'Challa, finds that will tested by a superhuman terrorist group called The People that has sparked a violent uprising among the citizens of Wakanda. T'Challa knows the country must change to survive -- the question is, will the Black Panther survive the change?

Not sure if I like this art or not. But I have a feeling people will praise this just because it's Black Panther, like Martian Manhunter, he seems to be one of those characters who gets nothing but love.

Cool, the art is solid, and matches what I want in a Black Panther comic. The writing I might need a bit more of to see if I like it. Coates is obviously a phenomenal author, but we will need to wait and see if that translates to comic writing.

i kinda like his new suit, but id prefer a cross between his usual suit and the techno-magic he had from Doomwar

Coates overlying theme of his run is going to be:

"Can a good man be a king, and would an advanced society tolerate a monarch?"

And I find this super intriguing.

Looks good. I thought it was an under-appreciated run when Black Panther took the reigns of Hell's Kitchen from DD.

Hope the book takes off. The animated Panther was cool and I'm betting the movie will be too. Lets hope the book can finally do what other past Panther comics couldn't.

@scouterv: If you asking the question I think you are then that comment is referring to a short lived Black Panther animated series that was very very good.

I'm surprised no one here are criticizing. It is because he's an African? I'm not so sure about this book and the art is horrible. There goes a cat with a unrealistic power lol.

YOUR surprised nobody will criticize this book because he's African???*sigh* -_- AND Warping Reality, Manipulating Magic and Teleporting is REALISTIC to you??? HAHAHAHAHHA WOW.

Black Panther deserves his own solo title he's an interesting character. Who is a King of his OWN country, and has in his possession one of the strongest super powered Items in the Marvel Universe. That's called "Vibranium" that EVERYONE is fighting for. Not only That Black Panther stands among THE most Smartest People in Marvel AND one of the BEST Martial Artists in Marvel. AND you reduce him down to

"There goes a cat with a unrealistic power lol."(Nocturm).................I NOW believe you don't know anything about Marvel Characters.
