Starts slow, and the language is flowery, but this is a superb story about two men on opposite sides. 9/10

  Some good 'swimming with the turtles' action in this one!

  Love the ending to this issue. In a very small number of issues, Don has created a huge host of memorable and deep characters.

  First issue of the Panther's Rage that I really enjoyed and it was about time after 10 issues of so-so story telling.

  The story is phenomenal. I was surprised that a year has passed... I wonder how this relates to the rest of the order... Has a year passed and we won't see the Panther for a while?

  In an arc as gritty and dark as this one has been, the turtle ride seemed really out of place. Well, it would have seemed out of place in any book but Namor's, but in this one REALLY out of place.
I liked the way they had Venomm escape. I mean, we knew he was going to attack them to get away, but it was so sudden with no lead up, that it was very effective.
Finale next issue and I'm hoping T'Challa's girl is going to make it out alive. It seems that whenever a hero has everything going right in love, tragedy strikes.

  Everything is in Wakanda including dinosaurs, about the coldest place on Earth (–100), giant turtles and who knows what else.

  Actually, this is about two years since the arc started (Jungle Action is a bi-monthly title here). But yeah, there's also a lot of time passing in the story as well. I wonder how long it took for the Panther to heal from all those wounds.

Well, Venomm may be a cheesy name, and he may be just one of Killmonger's henchmen, but the dude sure has some convictions. At least he won't kill for killing's sake, but I wonder how affected he was by Taku.

3 stars. T'Challa, Monica, and some sea turtles; so Happy Together!

  Most of these characters were only introduced, what, eleven issues ago? And yet they've got more character than most supporting cast in the Marvel universe. That's probably the main thing I've liked about this arc.

  Horatio and Taku are my favorite bromance in the order. Great run and a fantastic issue.

  This issue was all over the place. I had to check a couple of times to make sure my pages weren’t out of order.
