"YOU DESERVED SO MUCH MORE, LITTLE FLOWER. YOU DESERVED A WAKANDA THAT CHERISHED YOU." Writer ROXANE GAY (Bad Feminst, Hunger) spins a Wakandan love story — its tenderness matched only by its brutality. You know them now as The Midnight Angels, but in this story they are just Ayo and Aneka, young women recruited to become Dora Milaje, an elite task force trained to protect the crown at all costs. What happens when your nation needs your hearts and minds, but you already gave them to each other? Illustrated by industry veteran ALITHA E. MARTINEZ (Iron Man, Black Panther). And in a special backup story, acclaimed poet YONA HARVEY (Hemming the Water) explores the true origins of The People's mysterious leader Zenzi. Black Panther thinks he knows who Zenzi is and how she got her powers, but he only knows part of the story… Illustrated by rising star AFUA RICHARDSON (Genius).

So to get a book with a large focus on the two of them was a great surprise. The fact that Roxane Gay wrote this made it even better. Wor...
Not terrible, but not terribly memorable either, the main problem being the fact that the stories told slot into and in between existing stories. So, it's supposed to be character-driven, but the bulk of it being about Aneka and Ayo going in circles and circles with the beginning of their relationsh...
I have been excited and anticipating this ever since it was announced that Roxane Gay was going to be a writer for this comic and it did not disappoint. It's only one issue and I don't read Black Panther, so I was a little lost going in. I'd had no previous knowledge of the women guards and warrior...
