Wakanda #5 Review (2022)
Summary: Wraps up this mini series well and proves you can do a storyline even when the main character is absent.
In the conclusion of this series we follow Okoye on an operation against the enemies of Wakanda and she has a message to people who think they can mess with the country while Black Panther is not there, don’t.
You are shown what happens to the person behind the attacks at the start of this issue and it retraces the steps to it from there. This one does seem a bit more involved than the other issues and it wraps up this 5 issue series nicely so it does not seem like it really needs more explanation.
This series is more for people wanting more lore behind Black Panther and Wakanda and to expand its story and overall the series seems to do it well. I still have to see Wakanda Forever so I am not sure how much this has to do with the movie.
At this point I would wait for the trade paperback to come out with all the issues together but if you have been following the series up to this point it is well worth your time.
