Published November 16, 2016 by Marvel Comics. Written by Ta-Nehisi Coates and drawn by Chris Sprouse/ Karl Story.
After the exciting daring rescue of T’Challa from Stane Cage and the group bid T’Calla fair well as he gives a brief explanation as to why he summoned them there in the first place. However, later he and manifold prepare to embark on another most important journey to bring back Shuri to the living.
Meanwhile Shuri continues on her quest for enlightenment with the Griot that has taken the form of Ramonda and T’Challa along with Manifold make the leap to the Djalia. T’Challa still wrestles with the guilt of leaving Shuri to defend Wakanda herself and certain doom. But the living death she is trapped in is not what it appears as the Panther can’t get a sense on his sister and he feels as though she’s really not there at all.
In the Djalia Shuri stumbles upon the ruins of the Bako, a fifth dynasty of Wakanda and recounts the tale of Sologon. And tells how spirit of iron makes skin of stone. As Shuri nears the end of the story T’Challa and Manifold arrive to bring her back.
And with their return Shuri is free from the living death.
In this issue Shuri returns and the big question will be what role does she play in Wakanda now? The build-up seems over and it would appear we’ll get to see how she can resolve the hostilities in Wakanda and put down the People’s revolution led by Tetu and Zenzi. It’ll be interesting to see what impact this has on the Midnight Angels too. Maybe she can recruit them to help against Tetu and the People.
