I want to like Coates' Black Panther titles, but they are just so awkward, dull and instantly forgettable. ( )

This new series is set in Harlem and goes back and forth in time between the 1950s to today telling the story of Ezra Keith, or Lynx, and his gang of heroes who cleaned up the streets back then and then disappeared. Now Harlem needs a new brand of heroes to combat the evil that is taking over like with the Americops, a mechanical menace that seems to concentrate all their time in Harlem hassling everyone for the littlest things, such as a radio turned on or for being out in a group and just hanging out.

Ezra was arrested for protesting, which was nothing new for the old man. However, when he dies in police custody a protest breaks out in the streets that are growing to a near riot level. Ezra's niece and nephew, Hazel and Malik are trying to calm everyone down and keep it from getting out of control. They use Ororo Munroe who had been a friend of Ezra's and is also a friend of Misty Knight's to reach out to Misty, who had been a cop, to seek her help in finding out what exactly happened.

Misty will wind up seeking help from Luke Cage and a mysterious man from Australia who was also a friend of Ezra. Of course, T'Challa shows up having gotten a message from Ezra that peeked his curiosity and discovers Ezra's secret and what really happened all those years ago that even Ezra himself didn't know about. This comic is told with different comic issues focusing on a different character's point of view for when they are not doing the flashbacks, which I thoroughly enjoyed. This is an incredible team that is put together to fight for Harlem and they have their work cut out for them. Misty has been a favorite character of mine and Ororo I have loved from X-Men for years and it's great to see them together kicking ass. The artwork is soft, in contrast to the story it is telling, and the colors are bold, like the statement that is being said. In the flashbacks I was happy to see that they used a light brown sheen to it, almost a sepia tone, to indicate it was the past. This promises to be an excellent series and I can't wait to read the next installment. ( )
