Black Panther #6
Black Panther “Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda”: Book 1 is at its peak in this issue as it reaches the next level of science fiction with Pan-African spirituality and mythology. Emperor N’Jadaka (Killmonger persona) travels through the Orisha Gate, a portal to the Wakandan Gods. These are highly important beings of an esteemed nature. However, they are not quite gods – think of them as a spirit cocktail with a slice of saint and a tiny dash of divinity for flavor.
Fearing the truth of the Legendary Avatar prophecy has become reality, N’Jadaka seeks guidance from Bast, panther goddess and spiritual center to the Orisha Gods. This is where we begin to understand the “man” as a tale of N’Jadaka’s origin articulates with major events leading to his current status. A soldier no more, the Wakandan Emperor now thirst for more “power” than what the Klyntar can offer. The Klyntar, originally and more commonly known as the “Symbiotes”, are a species of inorganic, amorphous, symbiotic extraterrestrials created from the “living abyss” at the beginning of the universe.
Ta-Nehisi Coates flexes his storytelling skills and crafting an unique fresh comic book series that utilizes the complexity of Marvel mythos. Jen Bartel art style captures the internal fears and desires of N’Jadaka and the goddess – warrior of Bast. The colorization of Triona Farrell escalated in each panel, especially the ones without any dialog.
Two thousand years, the descents of Wakanda encouraged and strengthened bonds that took shape of its future political, spirituality, and cultural movements. After five issues, Black Panther “Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda” #6, Coates and his talented artistic team redirects the focus from T’Challa and the Maroons and reveals the origins of Emperor N’Jadaka.
Build up for T’Challa Vs N’Jadaka… Gods, intergalactic mortals and symbiotes are about to shake several galaxies. This is an excellent extension to Marvel’s Black Panther vault.
