Almost Gone! Fantastic Four #52-53 & Jungle Action #6-24, 1966-76. Recommended. By Don McGregor, Rich Buckler, Billy Graham, Gil Kane, Keith Polland et al. 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." It was an epic adventure so huge it ranged across the savannah, into the deepest jungles and up snow-topped mountains. Over its course, McGregor would explore and expand the life and culture of Wakanda and their African kingdom in compelling detail.

Details

In the 1960s, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created an unprecedented string of classic comic book heroes, including the high-tech king of Wakanda, The Black Panther. For his own solo series, Don McGregor strove to meet the same high standard with "Panther's Rage." It was an epic adventure so huge it ranged across the savannah, into the deepest jungles and up snow-topped mountains, to explore and expand the life and culture of Wakanda and their African kingdom in compelling detail.

Then, in a challenging storyline, he sent the Black Panther to the American south to seek justice for a murder connected with the Klan and the Soul Strangler, giving McGregor a chance to place the Panther in an urban world where his royal status no longer mattered, and the world was suddenly very different.

We're very impressed with the artwork here by Buckler and especially Billy Graham, a black artist himself. Graham and inker Klaus Janson (who worked on the Frank Miller Daredevil issues) and Bob McLeod do an oustanding job here. The Panther's costume adapts itself perfectly to the urban world, much like Daredevil's all-red costume did in his own inner city adventures.

And Gil Kane contributes some knockout covers for the series.

Included is the origin of the Panther, as told midway through his solo series. Also here is his first appearance, as part of the newly introduced Inhumans, in the pages of two seminal Fantastic Four issues from 1966. His own solo career kicked off in 1973 and here is a nice string of those first adventures.
