Shuri, Vol. 1
The world fell in love with her in the movie. Now, the Black Panther's techno-genius sister launches her own adventures - written by best-selling Afrofuturist author Nnedi Okorafor and drawn by Eisner-nominated artist Leonardo Romero! The Black Panther has disappeared, lost on a mission in space. And in his absence, everyone's looking at the next in line for the throne. But Shuri is happiest in a lab, surrounded by gadgets of her own creation. She'd rather be testing gauntlets than throwing them. But a nation without a leader is a vulnerable one - and Shuri may have to choose between Wakanda's welfare and her own.COLLECTING: SHURI 1-5

    (read 1-5 as single issue comics) This was a lot of fun, I really enjoyed Okorafor's writing and perspective on this slice of Wakanda. The story gets a little wacky, but it really clicks with the world and characters. Looking forward to the next volume!

    A very promising start! Nnedi manages to blend the youthful energy of the movie version with the complicated powers and backstory of the comics by Coates et al. I loved the pestering “masks” who call her Ancient Future, reminds me a bit of Akata Witch. It’s Shuri’s time to shine. Sharp graphics, too!

    This series is off to a great start. The writing feels fresh and I love the modern twist on the classic style of the artwork. The story is definitely wacky at times but that’s what makes it really great. Definitely recommend this one! 4.5 out of 5!

    I seem to be the only one not liking this. The art just isnt detailed enough. Its like its been drawn for children. The plot just either goes really weird or nowhere. I mean Groot wtf.

    PHENOMENALLY AMAZING. I'm shaken with glee and goosebumps EVERYWHERE. Where is to begin? This is the story we deserved *incoherently sobbing in the corner with joy*

    Another Marvel character receives a minor re-boot as the company syncs the character's comics and movie continuity (which from a business perspective is a good idea).And, for me the reboot works. I've read one prior TPB when Shuri was the Black Panther. Shuri's portrayal didn't work for me at all. That Shuri came off as hot-headed, immature, and in many ways not effective.The movie plus a change in writers breathes much needed new life in the portrayal of the character. Much like the movie Okorf Another Marvel character receives a minor re-boot as the company syncs the character's comics and movie continuity (which from a business perspective is a good idea).And, for me the reboot works.

That Shuri came off as hot-headed, immature, and in many ways not effective.The movie plus a change in writers breathes much needed new life in the portrayal of the character. Much like the movie Okorfaor plays up Shuri's intelligence and scientific expertise. In a nod to events taking place in her brother's ongoing series Shuri is dealing with the vacuum left by T'Challa's disappearance in outer space. T'Challa's disappearance leads to pressure from both Wakanda's elders and other African nations on Shuri to assume her brother's mantle, something Shuri does not want to do (she died the last team she did so). Yes, there are some fights and explosions. The emphasis is on Shuri using her brain and science to solve problems. Okorfaor also expands the tale beyond Wakanda as the reader and Shuri find out that her brother had been in the process of building a Pan-African Alliance (yes, a writer who doesn't write the continent as a monolithic entity but as separate countries).

    Okay. So I read this twice. First to read the story then to again cause I wanted to make sure I didn't miss anything in the drawings about the story. I enjoyed it. Need to know what happens next. This is why I buy volumes, so I can get a story arc in one go.

    It's OK - the drawings are a bit... hmm... better than a lot other things, but not amazing to me. The story is interesting, though... hmmm... :-D Now, this is ongoing process, they are still writing these comics, I have read the first 5 or 6, and there's more to come.
