The fan-favorite new hero of Wakanda, Tosin, takes center stage in this story written by his creator, John Ridley!
Forbidden romance and a dark prophecy loom in this story about what it means to be a true hero.
With T’Challa in exile, Tosin must step up and protect his nation when the Abomination attacks a vibranium mine.
But as Tosin strives to be a great warrior, will the pressures of his future shatter the life he is building for himself now?
Plus, the next chapter of the History of the Black Panthers – starring the one and only Benhazin!
COMICON‘Wakanda’ continues to journey through the various settings and characters of past and present that call the fictional nation home, creating something mostly unique. Hopefully, this opens space for more anthologies of this nature that can explore the rich tapestry that is Wakanda.
Impulse GamerWith T’Challa still in exile, it falls to Tosin to protect Wakanda when the Abomination attacks the Vibranium mine. He also has a secret relationship with a woman from the Sisterhood who is also concerned for his welfare. This is an interesting series as the main character is not in it so you get to have the stories focus on the people who are usually only supporting characters. There is also more history of the series being showcased going back to even before T’Challa was around. I am not sure how much this is following the movie at this point but it does make a good companion to it and I would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of Wakanda in either the comics or movies and wants to find out more about the story behind it. This is only a short series so it would be easy to go back and read the other ones in the series or just wait for the trade paperback at this point but as these are not really connected that much you can easily come in at any point and get something out of it.
ComicBook.comThe new Black Panther character Tosin is the focus of this issue, and his co-creator John Ridley returns to help flesh out his heroic journey some more. Readers get to learn more about the group known as the Sisters, and the mute zones that have forsaken Wakanda's technology to live a simpler life. I also didn't know Tosin had chosen the hero name of "Wakandan," so I'm hoping he sticks around for awhile, even with Ridley exiting the Black Panther series and Wakanda #4 painting a bleak future for him.
