Black Panther Ends


Another title hits the chopping block in February, as David Liss' long Black Panther storyline concludes with issue #529. The title appears to be concluding the story that Liss started over a year ago, so this appears to be another case of a book ending, rather than being cancelled. Much like with PunisherMAX.


Now, this finale may be because BP is possibly moving elsewhere, or because fans were largely apathetic to Liss' interest in characterisation and story over flashy displays of power. The lack of Wakanda has also been claimed to be a sticking point, with several fans even going so far as to boycott the title in protest. But that's all gossip and rumour. Sales had been perilous for a few months now, making this cancellation ultimately an inevitability.

BP's future is uncertain. If he doesn't move to the FF, then it appears he will be heading into limbo.
