It came in its turn in the setup of the Black Panther's post-Shadowland status quo.

It began with him describing where he lived and continued with his family.

Then it got into what he did to make his money, and how he now had the opportunity to move up the ladder.

The ladder was New York's criminal hierarchy.

The rung above was free for him to seize. )

may find that this preview of "Afterlife with Archie" (A frankly rather awesome title IMHO) up at Newsarama to be the sort of thing that trashes childhoods and tarnishes treasured memories...

To malevolent bastards like me, on the other hand...

it's GOLD! )

CA: So do those defining traits take on a darker tone? Is Reggie now scheming for survival?

RAS: Yes. So far, the series’ big secret that we’ve told everyone is that Reggie’s the one who ran down Hot Dog, which is what triggered the zombie apocalypse. He’s got a vested interest in all of this staying quiet, in true Reggie Mantle fashion.

CA: So if I’m putting this together right, Reggie runs over Hot Dog.

RAS: Right.
This is an actual comic that is going to be published )

They're the effective dramatis personae of last week's Black Panther; there's the master of the Hand (longer known as New York's Kingpin of Crime) too, but he only gets a single page's worth of all the issue.

It's a nice one, though; Liss's breakdown and Francavilla's colors really help it set up Wilson Fisk as The Most Dangerous Man Alive's first arc's enemy. Granted, it's not quite that ambitious as scenes go, but it's a nicely done job nonetheless.

Solicited as the war "you knew.. was coming", Fisk and T'Challa's conflict's going to be (re)introducing a few more canon foreigners to the Panther's refreshed, post-Fear Itself outlook on things, with a similar brevity if this month's issue's any indication.

It opens on minor Spidey foe and nanotechnological wheelman Overdrive, who narrates us up to speed on himself and Spider-Island. )

Last fall, Daredevil was the latter and so T'Challa became the former; this fall, Matt's the first again and so the Panther's assuming the second legend.

This second transition's marked like the first, by an event and with a tonal shift. It's a lighter one this time, with Daredevil having gone from Maleev to Martin and T'Challa's Most Dangerous Man Alive Francavilla covers looking.. well, like Hell's Kitchen in the evening rather than Zircher and Bianchi's Hell's Kitchen at night in Man Without Fear (that is to say, softer colors).

The stories're likewise flipping the switch: we've already begun to see Daredevil taking up a discarded mindset for his superheroic penance, and now it's the Panther's turn. The change's marked by the events of Fear Itself, and T'Challa's own agent of is a much more personal one- a new Hate-Monger, possessed by and possessing the original's hate powers.

The one more touted, the controversial American Panther promised to have a 'huge impact'.. he's a subordinate, according to last month's #521. )

So when first the American Panther was revealed, there was much discontent.

To some, it seemed like T'Challa was undergoing more pointless reinvention; though David Liss's Man Without Fear'd so far depicted both the Panther's competences and the grit of Hell's Kitchen entertainingly enough, fans feared this'd be the dropping of the ball.

Well, the patriotic Panther debuted in last week's #521 as a consequence of Fear Itself, and I'm happy that those fears were groundless.

(Oh, before I go any further- there's folks in these scans who aren't subtle about their feelings for non-whites and/or non-Americans. It's none of the particularly unsubtle stuff, but even still.)

But speaking of groundless fears, the Panther's got another new foe who knows exactly how to play on those. Who is he? )

So far, the threats of Fear Itself've either come from the Serpent's ranks or from those who haven't saved against his effects.

T'Challa's own, from the preview of July's Man Without Fear, certainly doesn't look like he's a forgotten god's envoy or Nazi servant.

And if he was scared, would he run around calling himself the American Panther? )

Scott Snyder has been on Detective since 871. If you haven't been reading it yet, this is a great issue to start. The writing is superb and the art is fantastic.
He's been delving into a story that he began weaving in 873 about James Gordon Jr., the son of Jim and Barbara Gordon (aka the son she was pregnant with in Batman Year One)

Oh aaaand it looks like one of the pages I've posted has already been posted here . Therefore... it looks like seven pages have been posted in total.
Four incredible & spoilery pages below )
