Some people seem to have a problem with the fact that, on launching the new BLACK PANTHER series in 1977, Kirby mostly went in a completely different direction from what was done with the character in the previous years. I never quite got that, but then I haven’t read much of that non-Kirby stuff.
What Kirby did was a fast-paced action-adventure book, a bit silly at times, but enjoyable.
I like the middle panel on this page, it has a very nice Kirby dynamic and sense of playfulness. Plus those other members of the Wakanda royal family can be pretty funny.
Joe Sinnott inked the cover while Mike Royer inked the story.
