In the 1960s, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created an unprecedented string of classic comic book heroes. Quite possibly the most iconic of them all was the high-tech king of Wakanda, The Black Panther. When the Panther began his own solo series, Don McGregor strove to meet Lee and Kirby's high standard with 'Panther's Rage.' Over its course, McGregor would explore and expand the life and culture of Wakanda and their African kingdom in compelling detail.
