Shuri (2018-) #1 by Nnedi Okorafor


Gosh, how gorgeous is this cover?? Unfortunately, the inner artwork is not as nice; it's got a sort of retro feel, though the colors are great throughout. I like that I can hear Letitia Wright's voice as Shuri in my head while I'm reading.

I'm so excited for Shuri to have her own series, and I'm really looking forward to see where this story will go. This first issue doesn't accomplish much other than giving background (of Coates' Black Panther run) and setting the stage for the upcoming plot. If you already know the background then there isn't much new in this issue, but if you're not familiar with the previous BP runs this should be a good primer for you for Shuri.
