I tried to like Hudlin's BP, I really did. I even got a subscription. But only held out until the wedding issue, and then dropped the book because of the poor editing and everything else mentioned on this board.
But there is a beacon of light coming up, with BP fan Dwayne McDuffie writing him into the cast of the Fantastic Four! I haven't picked up an F4 book in ages (though I'm slowly going thru 500 issues on the dvd-rom), but I'm really looking forward to seeing Black Panther under another writer, just to see if it was Priest's writing I loved so much or if it was Black Panther the character.
Of course, this'll just tide me over until BP and Storm join the Avengers, where they really belong...

McDuffie's a fine writer, but he's also a respectful writer. Normally that's not a problem, but with Hudlin's writing, it is. I've little doubt McDuffie will follow Hudlin's characterization, and I'm not fond of that.
