Black Panther: Tales of Wakanda Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
T'Challa faces the gods of his parents. Vampires stalk Shuri and a Dora Milaje in voodoo-laced New Orleans. Erik Killmonger grapples with racism, Russian spies, and his own origins. Here are 18 brand-new tales of Wakanda, its people, and its legacy. The first mainstream superhero of African descent, the Black Panther has attracted fans of all races and colors who see in the king of Wakanda reflections of themselves. Storytellers from across the African diaspora - some already literary legends, others rising stars - have created for this collection original works inspired by the world of the Panther.
With guest stars including Storm, Monica Rambeau, Namor, and Jericho Drumm, these are stories of yesterday and today, of science and magic, of faith and love. These are the tales of a king and his country. These are the legends whispered in the jungle, myths of the unconquered men and women and the land they love. These are the Tales of Wakanda.
This collection features stories by Linda D. Addison, Maurice Broaddus, Christopher Chambers, Milton J. Davis, Tananarive Due, Nikki Giovanni, Harlan James, Danian Jerry, Kyoko M., L.L. McKinney, Temi Oh, Suyi Davies Okungbowa, Glenn Parris, Alex Simmons, Sheree Renée Thomas, Cadwell Turnbull, and Troy L. Wiggins.

I understand that Marvel kinda really doesn't know what to do with the Black Panther character now that Chadwick Boseman (who played the character so masterfully) is deceased. BUT... this character lives on in the comic book world!
So if more movies are to be made and more books written (and audiobooks done); those who are all too familiar and know well the story of T'Challa (and T'Chaka); don't want a story about Wakanda. As interesting as "the place" is... it's not "the superhero" we've all come to know, respect, and love! Wakanda is still a backdrop (it's where the characters are from and has shaped who they are and how they think). Nevertheless.. what fans of the Black Panther comics want are stories where he is not treated as a filler but is the main character. So... this conglomeration of stories although done very well is just not IT!

It never disappoints, kept me occupied, now I don't know what to do with my life, the wife is now reading. And most expecially am more happy to support the writers and happy to see how it was written from their angle and impressed with it, looking forward to their next book.
Thought I'd get good, pulpy, Marvel fun and that is present for sure; really it's the humanity that is on display here. I can't properly explain it, all I can say is this book is amazing! Give it a go. Each story can be finished in an hour or less, so it's a fun read start to finish.
