    I dunno. While 12 was fairly good, I just felt like I REALLY got burned with the first few issues I bought (and kept reading, GLAD I wasn't buying them), and it's gonna have to get REALLY good for me to start picking it up again.

    Was a BIG fan of Priest's BP and it's just hard to get into Hudlin's after that. Besides, I'm still confused on the continuity of the current series...

    I love Scot Eaton's art. He made the last few King Thor arcs really come alive. The revolving door of artists before him marred what was an otherwise excellent (but really long) story arc.

    If you put it like that I can't argue.

    If they ever get hopping on that Black Panther movie, who would y'all want to see play the title role?

    My answer... NOT Wesley Snipes (nothing against him, I just don't want the same actor playing all these different roles)... but Avery Brooks! Who, you ask? Captain Sisko from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Hawk from Specer: For Hire. He's got a wide range, he's got a commanding presence and I think he could DEFINATELY pull off the political aspect. As for the martial arts.. well, he'd be in his masked BP outfit, hopefully. And he looks JUST like BP from Priest's title.

    'Course, I kinda think of Bishop as played by either Michael Dorn (especially that voice) or Julius Curry (Lord Bowler from Brisco County Jr.)... so I don't know exactly what that says about me. :)

    I'd like to see Taye Diggs play BP. I think Snipes has gotten too old for the role and it's passed him by. But, he would be perfect as Tachaka, BP's father.

    Not really. Two kings, one white, one black, both with to mortal enemies, one white, one black. Both total [email protected]$$es, that don't get the respect they deserve. Makes sense to me.

    I could totally see him as the Black Panther. :up:
    That's such a stereotype. White people are anywhere between peach and tan. :o

    Is Hudlin ever gonna show Hunter or Zuri?
    Because I had this idea that Zuri becomes the chieftan of the rival Black Lion tribe and that sparks a civil war!

    I don't know. He seems to be trying to get as far away from Priest's run as he can. I wanna see Eric Killmonger myself.

    Nice group shot, where is it from?
    I think it´s missing Cloak (from Cloak and Dagger) and Luke Cage.

    I'd like to see more from Priest's run, too. Mephisto, Killmonger, Hunter, Zuri, the REAL Ross, Hunter, Queen, Kasper and the Crew... All good characters that could only benefit the book, IMO....

    Just part of a group of pics called "Brotherhood" I found at comic art community. Theres a lot of em. I may get around to posting more.

    That pic with BP and Jack in the box is from another group of pics that has BP all over the world of Astro City, DC, and marvel in a world tour setting. They're pretty good.

    Okay it's official. I was on the fence about BP for a long time. I picked up the last couple of issues just on a whim and 13 clinched it. Black Panther is supremely badass.
    Long live the King.

    Btw where'd he get the ebony blade? where's black knight?
