Black Panther Brought to Life
(LA Times) — The online premiere last month of a Black Panther animated series was an exciting event for diehard comic geeks. The Panther, the first black superhero from Marvel, inspired me as a young comic fan. Now, all grown up with academic credentials to justify my comic habit, I can see the good and the bad in the new “motion comic” (a 21st century way to say cartoon). Moving it off the printed page and into animation is an important benchmark, but I’m concerned about its solely digital presentation.
