The 10 Coolest Places in Comics
In the first tag at the end of the blockbuster Captain America: Civil War, audiences got the briefest glimpse of the secretive and technologically-advanced nation of Wakanda, home of Chadwick Boseman’s kick-ass T’Challa/Black Panther. In the great audio commentary on the Blu-ray/DVD release, directors Anthony and Joe Russo talk about how they deliberately went minimal with the Wakanda material because they wanted to leave room for Ryan Coogler to flesh it out in his own Black Panther solo movie. However, fans need only look to the Marvel comics to get an idea of what’s in store, which gave us the idea to incorporate Wakanda in a list of The 10 Coolest Places in Comics, which you can check out in the gallery below!
In our list, you’ll find a grim and gritty megalopolis side-by-side with whimsical fantasy worlds and undersea kingdoms. Rather than sticking to locales of the big two comics universes (Marvel and DC) we went wider to incorporate titles from the UK, Japan, indie comics and even one very important newspaper strip. These range from intricate cities to expansive dreamscapes that could only truly come to vivid life in the pages of a comic book.
We hope you dig the eclectic choices we made, but like all our lists, we encourage you to let us know other cool places we left out in the comments below!
