This comic is not so much about the Black Panther and more about the Dora Milaje the all-female guard who protect the royal family. It focuses mainly on two characters: Captain Aneka and trainee Oyo. The two feel an immediate attraction toward each other that Aneka tries to deny. Oyo pushes to break through both physically on the field of practices as well as emotionally after class.

Months later during the Avengers war against the X-Men, Namor attacks Wakanda and the Dora Milaje capture one of his men to interrogate. Later Namor floods Wakanda. The Dora Milaje take it upon themselves to gather up the dead bodies and clean up the streets. Oyo doesn't believe in doing this work. She is eager to go and get Namor. When they finally get the chance with the Black Panther, he tells them he has Namor but that he won't be punished because there is another purpose afoot and Namor is needed for it and must be set free. Oyo is furious and thinks he is wrong. Aneka believes in T'Challa and that whatever he has decided must be right.

Oyo and Aneka will finally consummate their relationship, but Aneka insists on keeping it a secret. The Dora Milaje must be available to T'Challa as possible brides. Oyo is becoming disillusioned by T'Challa who let Thanos come to Wakanda and wreak havoc looking for something. He is never there and his association with the Avengers has brought danger to their doorsteps. Also, what happened with Namor is unforgivable. She is trying to get Aneka to see things her way.

It is brought to the head of the Dora Milaje Zola that one of the chieftains is raping women in his village and no one is doing anything about it. Since T'Challa isn't here to help, they decide to look into it and look at other villages and see what is going on in them. But they have a serpent in the Dora Milaje who will be a problem with this. I really loved this book. In other Black Panther books, I have read about Oyo and Aneka and its great to read about how their relationship came together. Also included in this book is a short story of how Zenzi started out and another one about Officer Kevin "Kasper" Cole, the White Panther. This is a great book and I give it five out of five stars.

Ayo and Aneka understand more about running Wakanda than T'Challa. Don't @ me. ;) ( )

The stilted dialogue and awkward soap opera and comic book plotting nearly ruin the sweet romance at the heart of this story. I really wanted to like this more than I did. ( )

Parts of it I liked, other parts much less so. ( )

Last year, I got and read the first issue of this short run and reviewed it here. I didn't know at the time that it would be a short run, but Marvel cancelled it a few months ago, which is disappointing. Along with the groundbreaking nature of the comic, it was a really good story and characters that I wish I could get to know better.

As mentioned in the review of the first issue, I loved the art here. It was appropriate for the type of comic. The women of the Dora Milaje are muscular and gorgeously drawn without be unnecessarily sexualized, but really it's the muscles. They're warrior women, they should be super fit and muscular.

Though the story follows a fairly typical work romance type relationship, it's what surrounds it that I loved the most. There is war happening all around them. Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with what's supposed to be happening in the Marvel Universe during the timeframe of the comic, so I don't really know what's going on there. The point is that the world is bigger than their relationship and there are problems that arise from that. I can appreciate their struggle and what they end up doing about it even more so.

I just wish the storyline could go on and we could see them kick butt in their new roles. I also wish I had time to learn what was up with Zenzi. I suppose I could go back and find a good place to start on Black Panther but I really hate doing that. Part of the fun of the new characters in the last few years for me has been not having to research them in order to read any of the comics. The more established characters have histories that keep popping up and people they've crossed and old team ups that get referenced. It drives me crazy, mostly because it can take forever to figure out what a good spot to start in is unless I know someone who has been reading the comics. ( )
