    I hear ya man.

    I used to have a goal of owning every comic book that Black Panther ever appeared in. After spending years of hunting down old Jungle Action and Avengers issues, and even random guest appearances....Hudlin finally broke me. I quit the new series only 6 issues in to his run.

    What does that tell you?

    AWWW man, that sarx... gee I feel for you... I know these are only 'characters' in comics.. but, if you are like me, as I suspect you are, you've been reading comics since very young?!? They often leave indellible impressions on us.. EG Captain America has had a huge influence on my life (and I'm Australian).. his sense of doing the right thing is one I have tried to mirror in my own life.. anyways, I digress..

    But yeah, that is pretty sad when you have soooo many.. ah well, one's trash is someone's treasure... so there are prolly lotsa people enjoying this stuff... just not us by the sounds...

    Well, REJOICE in the years of great stories ya do have I spose..


      I hadn't read BP for ages.. & thought the new numbering / new direction and New female BP miiight have been a good jumping on point.. I recently eliminated all X-titles from my pull list (a tough decision since I had an unbroken run of Uncanny over 350 issues, but the quality had been lacking for a looong time) so was looking to see if there were any titles I could take up

      ..imagine my disappointment when the NEW (and much hyped) BP did not appear in either the 1st or 2nd issue... it probably wouldnt have been quite so bad if.. ooh, i dunno.. the female BP hadnt been plastered ALL OVER the covers...

      ...well, feelings of cheated? used? hoodwinked? misled..???

      YOU BET..!

      so I didn't add BP to my pull list, thought i would wait to see how #3 went... So when CBR had an advanced Review of #3 - i decided to check it out... and gee, what do we find...?

      ...'SHE' still doesn't appear...

      boy I was glad I didnt add BP to my pull list... I only had a peripheral interest, so hard core fans might be more forgiving.. but not me.. there are lotsa other titles I will sample instead..

      I felt played, I feel like I was tricked... I'm sorry, but if this writer can't manage to live up to the 'hype' in 3-issues, how many more will he need?

      Its not like he forgot, overlooked it, made a mistake.. NO, this was PLANNED, deliberate and pre-meditated..

      So goodbye new female BP.. I hardly (actually, never) knew thee!
