Larry Stroman of Alien Legion fame worked on Reginald Hudlin’s Black Panther Annual #1 in 2008. Hudlin focused on Wakanda as the most powerful and advanced nation on earth. Here he tackles questions of love, duty, politics, and how Wakanda could have allowed the slave trade to exist. It’s ambitious material that may not succeed in fully answering that question, but Stroman’s artwork makes it a blast to read. Here are a few samples, including Stroman’s vision of Storm.

This vignette kicks off a three issue story called “Two the Hard Way.” Black Panther and Luke Cage get into a fight with a million ninja, The Falcon flies by lend a hand, and even Shang Chi Master of Kung Fu gets in some one liners.
Easily the best Team Up of 2006, and awesomely drawn by Scot Eaton.
