    The first half of this new issue is a bit of a departure for the series, focusing entirely on the action-heavy battle with Deathlok. The action is clear, quick, and exciting, wrapping up before it wears out its welcome. In the back half, Black Panther gets back to the investigative storyline that has made the series so special. It gets a little denser than previous issues, but it’s still leagues ahead of other current superhero sagas.

    A fallen king, a thief with a past, and a compromised cyborg are just a few of the colorful personalities that make ‘Black Panther’ #4 such a rich entry in this new series. Everything about this book feels so deep and real and gives new life to Wakanda in a much needed way. A superhero story with a heart and soul that it proudly wears for all to see.

    Issue #4 actually felt like a really long wedding reception. There’s lots to see and interesting hook-ups and other developments that coalesced. But there’s also the potential that someone’s cousin gets into a shouting match (i.e., our villain issues become further complicated). Plus, there’s also that tiny thought that some of the political nuances here may go ignored or underappreciated (which is a problem of the readers and not this extra sharp creative team). Still, I can’t help but walk away feeling satisfied, even if I didn’t exactly catch the bouquet.

    Black Panther #4 delivers some cool Black Panther vs. Deathlok action and stunning art throughout, but the plot barely moves an inch on a mystery that isn’t well-developed or interesting.
