It's been a LOOOOOONNNNNGGGGGG time since I've posted on these boards.
I just wanted to let folks know that I have written a chapter about T'Challa in the new book, "Ages of the Avengers: Essays on Earth's Mightiest Heroes in Changing Times"! You can find the book here:
The chapter is called "The Spy King:: How Christopher Priestâ€™s Version of the Black Panther Shook Up Earthâ€™s Mightiest Heroes!â€
I talk about how Priest made the Avengers team, and Avengers title, and Marvel Comics portray the Black Panther as a strong, non-Western, complicated character--the same way he was created by Lee and Kirby and upgraded by McGregor. I discussed Priest's portrayal as the BC/AD mark for the character.
(Hudlin fans: I do mention about his contribution, too.)
THANKS for letting me share!
