The Rundown: The Agents of Wakanda are headed to the moon when a dormant remnant of a previous mission awakens.
Gorilla Man and Broo are putting the finishing touches on a new system designed to scan for anomalies in space. When they get a reading coming from the moon, they go to investigate.
Back on Earth, Jameson is showing a reluctant Bobbi Morse around the Wakandan hellicarrier after she former SHIELD agent was contacted by Okoye. When Black Panther informs the team that he’s lost communication with Broo and Gorilla-Man, Bobbie tags along as the agents make their way to the moon to find them. What they find is far worse than anything they expected and its hungry.
The Story: This series keeps getting better both in the writing and the story itself. All of these characters are compelling and, as a Mockingbird fan, I love seeing her in this book. Her presence adds something interesting and light to the team and Jim Zub effectively plays off that in her interactions with characters like Okoye. This arc is starting off great and it’s proving to be another worthwhile challenge for the Agents. I continue to be impressed with this series and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
The Art: Lan Medina captures both characters, backgrounds and tech perfectly. All of the details in the art are fantastic and the action is brilliant in its scale and design.
