Ends the story arc. And is astonishingly good. This is an all-out epic. Itís so huge in scope, compared to earlier chapters that I was slightly jarred by it. Only slightly. Mostly I was just impressed. 10/10

  Wow, I did not expect Killmonger to go down like that.

  For some issues, I've been expecting exactly that conclusion. What surprised me the most with this issue is how Venomm returned and affected the battlefield. They really did a great job of character development with him.

  Was that a T Rex HEAD flying through the air?! That's not something you see every day.

  Yeah, any comic that features a fighter pilot decapitating a T-Rex has to be worth a look

  Damn, I couldn't have hoped for a better ending. 5 stars!

  Glad that Kantu had the chance to avenge his father. A nice ending to have an evil tyrant destroyed by his own actions come back to haunt.
Lots of questions about what happened to everyone. Everyone got their own little character beat during the battle, but was left unresolved. Was afraid this was the last issue but thankfully there's an epilogue.

  That was the least gory T-Rex decapitation I've seen in a while.

  Wow, that was quite an ending. Poetic justice for Killmonger, that's for sure. And of course, most of his lieutenants go running for the hills when the tide of battle doesn't go their way. But it still doesn't look like we'll see them again.

I actually liked all the character development that happened over these twelve issues. Overall, it did a fantastic job telling a pretty broad story that may have meandered a bit, but still painted quite a picture of a war-torn Wakanda that makes you wonder if T'Challa will ever want to leave again.

And this was probably Marvel's first named arc lasting more than 3 issues. A sign of the future of comics there.

4 stars. @skalchemist: actually, that was a laughing T-Rex head flying through the air. THAT'S something you don't see everyday!

  Killmonger isn't wrong about his death potentially making him a martyr, looking forward to hopefully seeing how that plays out. And I'm surprised by how much I care about what happens to W'Kabi and his family, especially given he started out this arc as just kind of a dick.

  And just when I thought this arc was finally over, there is still 1 issue left.
