Plenty of incidents to show off the hero, and engrossing sub-plot about his lady and perception of her. The ongoing storyline is skilfully kept in the background, but makes it's presence felt in everything that happens. 6/10

  "Catch up" summary or no, this title is an absolute mess. I still really have no idea what to make of the characters or their motivations. I think the authors were trying to up the level of sophistication in their storytelling, but at this point are missing the mark.

  I disagree with Redsvetz's comment above. I'm really enjoying this story so far. It's quite interesting that they are padding out the back of each book so that they don't end up putting in one of the terrible Jungle Action reprints and completely undermine what the book is trying to do.

  I suspect I would have enjoyed this particular story more if I hadn't already overdosed on voodoo stuff in the past 100 or so comics.

  This is getting old pretty quickly. The supporting characters all look alike and I can't even know which name refers to which character. Now, add zombies and you get a ridiculous issue that doesn't even really tie with the ongoing arc.

  This issue became very confusing... No idea how the Rhino part fit in outside introducing Mb'Jakom or whatever his name was. The zombie guy came out of nowhere and doesn't seem to fit in this story very well.

  I think all of the backlash is coming due to zombies being involved after so much voodoo stuff recently. I may agree that I'm not sure how the good Baron is supposed to fit into things, but I'm willing to give the benefit of the doubt for now and hope that things such as those get explained.
Not a fan of the outlander/commoner prejudice. I mean, I understand where they are coming from with it, but this is supposed to be one of the most advanced societies in the world that choose to live traditionally. I would have thought they had licked this.

  3 pages vs. a rhino in a 15 page title isn't great. Felt like a filler issue with very little progress and a lot of fighting.

  I miss Rich Buckler.

  This did seem like a side-stepping from the original premise of this arc, like this story was filler or something, further supported by the fact that Gil Kane stepped in for Rich Buckler on pencils. I'm not against the zombies, but I'm having a hard time wondering how (and why) Baron Macabre fits into Killmonger's plan. It's almost like the Baron was shoehorned in.

Intriguing side plot concerning Monica developing. Already not fitting into the Wakanda society and now facing charges? It does add a new dimension to this arc.

3 stars. Not liking the sidetracking but it's not enough to derail the arc just yet.

  The Baron would have been a more fitting villain for Brother Voodoo than the Black Panther, although it does seem harsh to drag the Baron down to Brother Voodoo's level.
