I agree with you that Priest's stories fell apart circa year two, but Ross was not one of the bad things in the book...

Oh and just because Priest can't go over 15 issues without going nuts doesnt' mean that we have to suffer through the lack of ability that Hudlin has. This current super push of the BlackPanther(and anyone who doesn't think he's not being shoe-horned into everything and made to look super significant like the first post in this thread is crazy...) this current push would have been so much more effective under a REAL writer..

Instead the one big event, the wedding, was without any emotion or real significant characterization.. How much longer can big events and cross-overs prop up this book?

After year 2 he was imo. THe continuing narration of Ross and then Queen Divine Justice over the main character of the book was annoying. When THe Kasper Cole story was introduced, "BP" now narrated in his own voice however this wasn't the real BP just an imitator. I actually liked the Kasper Cole story and wouldn't mind seeing more of him but not at the expense of the REAL BP. I felt that overall that literary move showed a weakness in PRiest's writing. HE was afraid to have T'Challa talk for himself but apparently wasn't afraid to have the imitator Black Panther talk for himself. Priest wrote T'Challa from the perspective of a spectator. Personally I felt that hurt the book (at least it did for me).

in some ways I'm glad BP did not get a push during Priest days. As much as people swear up and down how great Priest was... He wasn't. He was okay however I don't like the directions he took in many of his work. I think th Crew would have really defined him as a writer but unfortunately it did not get a chance. T'Challa under Priest would have suffered greatly if he had gotten a chance imo. He was already heading in that direction and had been for the entire run. While the current run could be more literarily intriguing, I'm happy to see a character whom I like being overall uplifted instead of torn asunder. Conflict is one thing but beign a hero means you overcome adversity. Priest didn't understand that Black Panther's existance hasn't been marked with enough significant victories for him to take the L's he was being given.

I don't disagree. Overall I have enjoyed Hudlin's run with a few issues every now and then being bleh. THe last issue was the biggest letdown for me. I'm anxious to see how the rest of this year plays out.
