Wakanda in the Marvel Universe has always been both commentary and reflection on the real world.  The real world has seen every attempt…

Normandy Gold #2 sure as hell doesn’t have much in common with the first era, but it’s a child of the second, the era that gave us “The Godfather,” “Chinatown,” “Mean Streets,” “Shaft,” “Deep Throat,” and “Taxi Driver.” The era that gave us the grittiest of crime films and dramas that…
