And of course, no comic ever fails when its marketed like crazy and participates in crossovers.

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.

Let's hope they recall that Dwayne's last name is McDuffie, not Turner.

Who cares. The consensus is that Priest's run is incredible and well recommended while Hudlin's run is horrible beyond belief. It is not my opinion, I found out about Priest's incredible run through several big websites including IGN and Silver Bullet Comic Books that recommend Priest's run. Neither of these sites like Hudlin's abysmal run.

Do not assume that because you like trash that it is actually good.

Sorry, I got them confused. They are both great comic book artists. I meant Dwayne McDuffie.
