    The Essential Black Panther Vol. One - Don McGregor

    Am I missing anything?
    The McGregor run is also available as a Marvel Masterworks HC:

    http://www.amazon.com/Marvel-Masterw...er+masterworks

    Actually, the prices listed are quite cheap for a Masterworks. If I didn't own it already, I'd lock that down.

    The great things about the Masterworks volume, besides the color and better paper, are a lengthy and informative introduction by McGregor about what he and Billy Graham were trying to achieve with the series and a beautiful afterword by the late Dwayne McDuffie on what it meant to finally have a superhero that looked like him. Both are essential reading for tracking the evolution of depictions of diversity in the history of comics.

    I didn't know BP had a masterworks. I gotta order that when I get paid, I only have the essential and some Jungle Action issues.

    I'll add that to the list.

    Fresh start. Good times are coming... someday.

    I am not as savvy with Wakandan catch phrases, so...

    Hail to the true king, baby!

    We are the Dora Milaje. We are the daughters of the 18 tribes of Wakanda. We are the teeth of the Panther God. Out of 10,000 years of sweat and bloodshed and battle are we born. We are the women of this ancient land. Deadliest of the species. And our time has come!

    So Important order of business Wakanda, the old forum is viewable for 14 days stating now than it will be gone forever. We need to decide on which posts to save from the old BP appreciation threads before it is too late
    The J-man

    I post via my phone a lot, therefore I make the occasional grammatical error. Not an excuse just forewarning you. Feel free to call me out I won't mind.

    Glad to see the Black Panther thread is back with multiple pages already!

    On a related note, just wanted to say something real quick that I've been thinking since I went from lurking to posting and back to lurking again. I hope it isn't taken as a rant. It's just something that I think fits the spirit of the day and what's happened on these forums.

    I finally made an account a few months back because I wanted to be an active member of a community that cares a lot about this character like I do. I received a warm welcome and things were great for a day or two. Then I made the mistake of saying something positive about one of the X-Men and a lot of the regulars here turned on me. I found myself stuck with the option of either arguing with my brothers or going with whatever the majority felt. It was as if I was one of the X-writers who they felt had disrespected T'Challa. I understand being passionate about this character, I really do. But as we read about these new forums and are thankful that we'll hopefully deal with fewer trolls, fanatics and general "those guys", I'm just asking that we try to be mindful of the part of us that can turn into one of "those guys" whenever we feel strongly about something.

    Again, I have nothing but love for you all and the Black Panther. I'd just really like to see this thread focused on "appreciation" instead of all the negative things we could talk about.

    On a related note, I got my avatar from today's issue of New Avengers. It was the first time in a while that I've seen the short cape/collar combo and thought it actually looked kinda cool (Though for some reason the collar is clearly propped up differently in that profile shot.)

    Edit: here's a bigger version

    Welcome back Leo. If we ever made you feel unwelcome, that wasn't our intent at all. We've got a fresh start going forward so feel free to chime in with your opinions at any time.

    Absolutely understood, my friend. Just wanted to get that off my chest and promote positivity!

    I've tried to post a buetifull post with images several times.


    New forums won't let me leave a post open while I jump back and forth copy and pasting code and stuff


    In summary. Go team panther
