Book Review | Black Panther Vol. 1, A nation under our feet by Ta-Nehisi Coates and Brian Stelfreeze

Black Panther #1Black Panther #1 by Ta-Nehisi Coates
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

For me this was a great introduction to the Black Panther universe. I don't read a lot of superhero graphic novels, so I was unfamiliar with T'Challa and the nation of Wakanda until I saw his portrayal in Captain America: Civil War.

Other people have commented that this is a different Black Panther than previously seen, I of course can't comment on that. What I can say is that I liked that the discord, was coming from within Wakanda - I don't think any nation is without its struggles and this makes where Coates is taking this story line a believable one. As for the illustrations and colouring - I think it is beautifully done.

I'm looking forward to delving into Black Panthers story further.

Read-a-thon | Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon


So it's that wonderful time in April again - Dewey's 24 hour readathon is upon us, (I worked out I've missed the last three!!).  I know that I won't be reading for the full 24 hours, I always like to try but I know it's not going to happen. I do have a nice selection of books on my TBR.  I have a couple of titles that I need to read for an upcoming book club focused on stories set in the Mallee. Everyman's Rules for Scientific Living by Carrie Tiffany and Mallee Sky by Kerry McGinnis.  I'm also listening to The Gracekeepers by Kirsty Logan, which will be perfect for tomorrow SARG Paws Along The Murray fundraising walk.  I love heading down to the walk every year, they do amazing things with rescue animals and it is where I found Maggie, or she found me :)

I have a couple of volumes of graphic novels to read, (The Walking Dead and Saga) and like most readathons I'm sure my TBR will change as the day progresses. With just over four hours until it's kick off time in Australia, (10pm EST), snacks are ready, I'm relatively well rested - but more importantly - I'm excited to start reading!  Let me know if you're participating in the comments below, what are you planning to read?!

I'll be updating my progress on the blog, Instagram and Twitter, you can find me at both as @cataluna6

Until next time, happy reading :)
