BP 39: Good piece and war!
Even Tolstoy may've approved - he wasn't dyslexic but he could tell a good story.
Preview: Black Panther #39
Good issue! Reminded me for some reason of the good movie:
Zulu, with the nations roles reversed.
Granted, there are seems logic flaws based on what we know of the MU and SI. But there was good moves/counter-moves (like when Kirk first encountered the Romulans in that good episode of Star Trek)...
-evocative art and very good images that really suited the grunt war theme.
-wonderful POV of the Skrull Captain though very disappointing he was unnamed which is a shame because he has distinguished himself here, plus why not give this detail since Marvel just put out a tempting issue of SKRULLS identified anyways.
-that was quite a greeting card Panther played! He speaks their language, good. ('Well' is the proper word but there's a theme going here. )
-good ole W'Kabi.
-a Bic lighter??!! Well, it IS more advanced than a stick torch.
-the splash page worked out good as repeated shocking welcome for the skrulls but might've worked better - can't believe'm sayin' this but with turning the book as a sideways splash. Also just having them filing out the one big obvious door seems a little less dramatic than maybe just being there - maybe popped up out of ground or thru open secret doors along wall.
-Panther's face mask over his face mask must be an interesting added defense (over vibranium/metal armor worn last issue - okay that was said with a little sarcasm)
-maybe best battle-in-progress layouts seen in SI so far; plus, a powerful double splash and powerful mid-battle kiss!
-the Romulan-like Captain is not done yet as evidenced by the subtle yet effective cliffhanger.
Putting the sides on an equal playing field was a bit forced and flawed but works well for the story if you look past that...
