The Buzz on the new Marvel "Black Panther" movie has been hitting the Internet in a big way!
As one review wrote:
"Black Panther looks, feels and sounds unlike any Marvel film to date. A visual feast. Wakanda is amazingly realized, the antagonist actually has an arc with emotional motivations. Marvels most political movie. So good."

And just as happy to see that as anyone is one of the Black Panther cover artists, Arthur Suydam.
Known for his pivotal work on "Marvel Zombies," it was Arthur's cover work on that series that helped catapult it into one of the most successful series of all time, and add to the growing zombie craze that writer Robert Kirkman continued with "The Walking Dead." (On which Suydam has also provided the frontage.)
Coupled with his work on George Romero's "Empire of the Dead," and his work on "Deadpool," Suydam was a natural choice for his run of work on "Black Panther," as well.

"I was happy to work on pieces for that character," said Suydam. "I've always found him to be one of the Marvel characters with a great deal of depth to be explored. And it's no surprise that he'd be the subject of one of the upcoming movies."
As to which of his many works is his favorite, Suydam says he really couldn't say. "Like every piece, the one I'm working on at the time is my favorite. But working with the Black Panther series was certainly a pleasure.
As part of his appearances at conventions world wide, Suydam often does free quick sketches for kids on Sunday. The subject matter is wide ranging, but as Suydam notes:
"Black Panther is always a favorite."
