.......is to buy as many copies of his next book as possible. When comicbook companies say they're responding to fans, they're responding to SALES.

One thing Hudlin is right about: Priest got PLENTY of chances--FIVE, SIX different titles between 1998 and 2005?--to sell. We can argue about why none of them (The Ray, Steel, CAF, etc.) sold as well as Marvel and DC would have liked, but that statement still is the truth.

So if/when he gets another chance, we "vocal minority" need to buy 5, 10, maybe even 15 \(\!\) copies of each issue.

Because I could not believe the quality of Priest's work, I spent HUNDREDS of dollars on Priest's BP between 1998 and 2003. I bought an average of four copies of all 62 issues, and bought five copies of those two BP trades. I gave almost all of it away, to try to generate support. I'm very disappointed that it didn't keep Priest in this business.

We need more people. If Priest is considered a writer who sells, he would get many titles to write, including a Panther one-shot or whatever. But that's up to us--or, more accurately, up to OUR MONEY. Complaining, etc. doesn't/won't matter.

McDuffie's take on Black Panther is pretty good because it is a homage to Priest's Black Panther. It looks to me like Priest's Black Panther is the definitive Black Panther and to not have him write Black Panther is like Marvel Comics renaming themselves Tropic Comics. It just does not make any sense.

Should we start a movement over at Marvel comics message board complaining about Hudlin's Black Panther?

I myself am a fan of the Hudlin Panther even though I've developed some issues with his stories since the wedding. But yeah i don't hesitate to show my support with buying the comic
