    The John Ridley run of Black Panther comes to an end on a solemn note. I enjoyed how the feud between former best friends T’Challa and Jhai wrapped up; not with a fight-to-the-death, but a discussion about mistakes they’ve made. Their friendship shined through all the way to the end. The status quo changes that were introduced will warrant monitoring when the new volume of Black Panther launches this summer.

    The latest volume of ‘Black Panther’ comes to a satisfying and game-changing conclusion with ‘Black Panther’ #15, wrapping up much of what has been built over the past fifteen months while also seeding plenty to be picked up upon for years to come by others. While T’Challa’s future is murky and a question mark, the future for Wakanda within the universe is quite bright creating some great forward movement in a medium often dominated by old status quos.

    The Story: John Ridley brings his run on Black Panther to an end. An end that couldn’t come soon enough. With everything that has been built in this series and this arc, it ended exactly as I suspected. There was no surprise, no innovation and frankly, no heart. It was a cookie cutter exercise is removing the main character and jockeying a series of forgettable ones into position to take his place. There could have been something poignant and engaging in T’Challa’s departure, but the story was so shallow that I was just waiting for it to end.

    The Art: Peralta does a great job with the art in the issue, but all of the build up to the final confrontation with Jhai was wasted with the rest of the issue becoming a great way to show off the new characters while doing little else visually.

    Black Panther #15 ends the series the only way it can, with an anti-climactic end to Jhai’s attack and a 12-page epilogue for everyone to say goodbye. If you’ve loved Ridley’s run, this ending is more of the same. For everyone else, this issue is a waste of time.

    Past creators Don McGregor, Christopher Priest, and Reginald Hudlin told stories about a king balancing altruism and national duty. The past decade, however, has seen the franchise oscillate between stories in which T’Challa learns to trust his people, giving up his political power and stories in which T’Challa, stripped of his power, learns to fight for the little people, accept loss, and then somehow gets his political power back. This is the roller coaster that Marvel has crafted. Many readers will no doubt enjoy the loops and barrel rolls. For this reviewer, it’s time to go find a new ride. (…) Suffering from a lack of development in prior issues, ‘Black Panther’ #15 lands with a thud, even as certain sequences stand strong.
