Hey, What You Reading? Black Panther #2

The philosophy of motivation. Ta-Nehisi Coates and Brian Stelfreeze's second issue of Black Panther builds directly off the world-building setup of the first. Now that the players have been identified and the political chessboard set, it is time to go a little deeper into the minds of those characters. And what we find are no clear

Hey, What You Reading? Black Panther #1

This is easily my most anticipated comic of the year. When it was announced last year that Black Panther would relaunch as a solo tile with Ta-Nehisi Coates as the writer, well, my interest was piqued to say the least.

Hey, What You Reading? Doctor Strange #1

Doctor Strange by Jason Aaron and Chris Bachalo is the second of the monthly titles I have been following in the All-New, All-Different, post-Secret-Wars era of Marvel. And to be honest I assumed I would pick up the first two or three issues and drop it. An ongoing solo title for the good Doctor didn't
