General Note:
Subtitle from cover.
Summary, etc.:
For centuries, the Chieftain of Wakanda (the Black Panther) has gained his powers through the juices of the Heart-Shaped Herb. Much like Vibranium, the Heart-Shaped Herb is essential to the survival and prosperity of Wakanda. But something is wrong. The plants are dying. No matter what the people of Wakanda do, they can't save them. And their supply is running short. It's up to Shuri to travel from Wakanda in order to discover what is killing the Herb, and how she can save it, in the first volume of this all-new, original adventure.

    *Starred Review* Shuri, 13, may be the baby sister to T'Challa, king of Wakanda, but her knowledge of all things science and technology deem her a force in her own right. The queen thinks Shuri should spend less time in her lab and more time socializing, but Shuri's convinced that she's better off tinkering with new gadgets and Vibranium experiments. With the challenge ritual coming up, Shuri has been busy with just that—designing a new Black Panther habit for her brother, infused with the Heart-Shaped Herb. She soon finds, however, that she must stop an invasion of her beloved Wakanda or else the nation and their supply of Heart-Shaped Herb (which gives the Black Panther their powers) is doomed. Together, Shuri and her Dora Milaje–in-training, K'Marah, set out on a quest that begins what readers will hope to be an ongoing series. Seasoned Marvel fans will delight in Ororo Monroe's big-sister role to a young Shuri, while all will appreciate getting into the head of Wakanda's resident genius and (hopefully) soon-to-be Black Panthress. While we do hear directly from Shuri in her mission-log notes, the action of the story feels muted at times by third-person narration. Nevertheless, the science, comedy, and unapologetic Black girl magic will make this title a surefire hit.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The combination of best-selling Stone and the scene-stealing Shuri from the blockbuster Black Panther is a match made in high-demand heaven.
