Just got done reading Batman: The Imposter (Graphic Novel) DC Black Label is my shyt! :banderas:
This one was good, but depressing with the "realism"
Gordon fired, Alfred quitting immediately, Batman can easily be impersonated and framed, etc.

Ridley's Black Panther is trash.

This the type of shyt i'd expect from white writers, so its doubly troublesome that we've now had back-to-back African-American male writers who not only want to depict T'Challa as a premium version of Jody (Baby Boy) but they also want to inject some weird sense of American nationalism. "Monarchies are bad, democracy is great, blah bla-" nobody gives a shyt.

The premise is a cerebral masculine king of a thriving sci-fi African monarchy. It'd be like someone assigned to a Dr. Doom solo and saying well i want the next 7 years to focus on him being a down on his luck Matt Murdock with catholic undertones. Well why don't you just write a fukking daredevil book then?

Completely agree. They're turning T'Challa into an unlikeable, emasculated and bumbling fool who is constantly being talked down to at every turn by the women in his life.

I was expecting to love this book considering how much I enjoyed Ridley's Other History of the DCU and I liked the first issue a lot but since then the book has been very up or down with the down turns outnumbering the upward ones.
It's sad that I still look to Priest's Black Panther as the essential way to write the character and his adventures and none of the dudes who have followed him have come anywhere near to the levels that Priest achieved on BP.

And speaking of Priest...his Black Adam #1 was flames.
