> I really do not see what the big news is. Marvel has marketed Hudlin's Black Panther like crazy and has had Black Panther involved in several crossovers which is really the only reason Black Panther is selling so well.
And of course, no comic ever fails when its marketed like crazy and participates in crossovers.
> Priest will be remembered for all time as one of the greatest comic book writers ever, with his Black Panther run as the best besides McGregor's Black Panther run.
> Hudlin will be remembered as one of several bad comic book writers working at Marvel Comics a few years before the collapse of Marvel Comics. People will remember Hudlin with disdain because in all his Black Panther he accomplished nothing with Black Panther.
Because, if you remember that way, then everyone else must too? I know this is hard to believe, but there are actually people that like Hudlin's BLACK PANTHER. And believe it or not, there are actually people that didn't care for Priest's BP. I happen to like them both, but don't assume that just because you like or dislike a series that somehow, the majority of people feel the same way.
> Dwayne Turner will be recalled as the highlight of Black Panther's adventures during the Hudlin years, which makes Hudlin pretty much >insignificant.
Let's hope they recall that Dwayne's last name is McDuffie, not Turner.
