The new series is by John Ridley, an author new to Marvel but famously known as the writer of the Academy Award-winning movie 12 Years A Slave

This is off to a great start. While I appreciated the creativity and ambition of Coates's run, I wasn't a big fan of the epic sci-fi story he was telling. Especially as it ran so long (basically a single arc that literally took years). I became fatigued of it after awhile and it is wise for Ridley to not try to match it and instead go in a completely new direction with the more down-to-earth genre of political intrigue and spy thriller (and let's be honest: Wakanda having greater democratization is a move long overdue!). We got secret agents to meet and a mystery villain to uncover and T'Challa operating off-the-grid; it is a really intriguing premise if Ridley can deliver. He has been given an experienced artist in Cabal and I am excited to see what they can do.
