i loved the first 7 issues of black panther, IMO these are the best work hudlin has done in his entire run on the series, really, and the art was excellent john romita jr, trevor hairsine, IMO, from issue 8 and up, the series went on a downhill road of quality (both on scripts and art, most in art, are you going to deny it?)to the point that i am considering in droping the series.
but what do i see now in the sales estimates?? that the best issues were the lower salers, nearly 25k, and on the other hand, the poorer issues in queality are selling 50k.
really who understand the fanboys.
i don not.
Crossovers, tie ins, etc draw in more readers, but fails to hold them long term. Putting aside the debate about quality, another reason might be because these crossovers rarely play to T'Challa's character in any meaningful/profound way, and as such, readers don't get to see what makes him stand oyt as a character.
