> From Newsarama:
> Toon Zone attended the New York Comic Con’s Black Panel on Friday, where additional details on BET’s Black Panther animated series were revealed:
> The biggest news for BET was about the newly announced prime-time Black Panther animated series, which was the first question from the audience after Davis opened it up to questions from the audience. The new show will be based on the first story arc, “Who is the Black Panther?”, from the Marvel Comics series written by BET vice president Reginald Hudlin. Cowan reported that Hudlin will be writing the animated series, and that the series will be using many of artist John Romita Jr’s designs and aspire to look a lot like the original comics. The eight-episode series is currently scheduled to debut in October 2008. Cowan stated that there were no voice casting announcements he could make yet, but that they were talking to “some stars you might know.”

> This works for me. Just having it be an adaption (more or less) of "Who Is The Black Panther" makes it really easy in terms of trying to figure out how you work in other Marvel characters.

...I'm almost speechless. The worst Black Panther writer yet, and his take is given precedent over that of Stan Lee and Priest, seasoned vets of story telling.

Someone else besides Hudlin needs to write the Panther. How is he going to find the time to run BET, write the comic AND write the Panther cartoon?

There are so many things wrong with this scenario, I don't even know where to begin.

I think they should get another writer for the Panther cartoon, plain and simple. And basing the animation designs solely on the current run because Hudlin is writing it right now seems like a slap in the face to all the writers and artists who worked on previous incarnations of the Panther.

And not only do we get to read a poorly-written Panther comic, we will also get to WATCH a poorly-written Panther cartoon, which is basically a rehash of what we have ALREADY read in the poorly-written comic book, because all of it has been written by the SAME guy.

This is not good at all.
