A review by iffer
Shuri (2018-) #1 by Nnedi Okorafor


Nnedi Okorafor rapidly develops not only the character of Shuri, but as is fitting with the character and lore of Wakanda being complex and interdependent, also lightning depicts the diverse cultural and political facets, sometimes collaborative and sometimes at odds, of Wakanda. Okarafor is both subtle and unabashed in presenting her beliefs while simultaneously writing a fun comic book story that doesn't take itself too seriously. I love all of the cover art, both the regular and variant covers. I'm on the fence about the interior art, which has a retro, 90ish feel with matte color and thick pencil lines.
