*sigh*
One final issue of this series to go after this issue. Damn, I don't want to see this series end. :(

This issue, T'challa was amazing, from the fight with Wilson Fisk, to the way his planning all came together -- I loved seeing him do what he does. It was great the way T'Challa turned Fisk's own lawyer against him. The great thing about the way this issue was written though is that even though T'challa seems to be in control, Fisk still comes across as a threat.

I both keenly await next issue and dread it for the ending it represents.

I've love this book and am really sad to see it go, but Oeming on the art was a massively jarring change.

Other than that, it's one of my favorite books in ages.

Yeah, that was my only downside.

Oeming did the art for one of Priest's BP issues and felt weird to me way back then. I guess his work doesn't feel right on this character to me.

Think it would have been nice to have the whole regular creative team finishing off the book, too.

I can't wait for the next issue. Even though I'll be extremely sad that this book is over, I'm going to be extremely happy that the character (and the book) are ending on a high note after being chained the knees by a premise that did nothing for anyone involved in the affair.

I also can't wait to write my review, as it may be the most controversial one I've ever written.

I don't think Oeming ever did a Priest issue.

I don't have it in front of me, but I think he did one of the EARLY issues. Like #7 or #12.

Rereading it... Miyu was grabbed by Sofija in 527 but was present at the end of the book. Panther has her at the beginning of 528.

Whoopsie.

Guess it's No-Prize time (or just not a big deal).

Oeming didn't draw in Priest's run. At all.

Apparently Mike Manley was doing his best Oeming impression.

So Miyu is working undercover for the Panther right? That’s my guess, he’s been one step ahead of the Kingpin this whole time and Wilson never even noticed his hot new assistant was betraying him. Or maybe I’m totally wrong. Either way, this was another excellent issue that managed to balance action and intrigue pretty much perfectly and set the table for an epic finale next month. Oeming’s art continues to be excellent, and really does remind me of Batman: The Animated Series and has me thinking that Liss could do a really good job of writing Batman, or pretty much anyone really. Even though this book is ending, David Liss has proved himself to be a fantastic writer, and I’d love to see him get a new series soon, he’s written a great Luke Cage here, how about a Power Man mini?

T'Challa will most likely be returning to his throne at the end of this. I hope Liss is picked to continue writing the character if they're gonna give T'Challa back his book.

While I love this book and I love David Liss, I think it's a little bit odd that he'd choose to have the Panther in "the lead" in the penultimate chapter. If decades of watching wrestling has taught me anything, it's that if the face beats the heel on TV the week before the PPV, the heel will be winning the big match. Will Liss go for an unhappy ending here? If so, I think that would be cool.

That would be fucking unacceptable. We do not need another fucking Doomwar.

Never read it. But if we have a happy ending, then I would feel the story arc was a little bit lacking, with Panther's victory never really in doubt.

Doomwar was basically Doom invading Wakanda taking a whole bunch of Vibranimum with T'Challa's only solution being to totally render the Wakandan version of the metal inert. Basically it was a story that was ruined by the ending in the same way Identity Crisis was ruined by its ending.

And in all honesty, the fact that Kingpin still has a play to even consider going into the last issue should be considered a major victory for him, because people that usually try to invade Wakanda usually end up with their heads on a pike. It's one thing to keep T'Challa on his toes, but he turns into a different animal when Wakanda is threatened directly.
