A reviewer recently posted a review for Chapter 58. At the end of the review, they state: Again, I am weary [wary] of this story, I love it and I’m exited, but reading some of your comments I get a bit nervous.

Jackson Square Landmark Cinemas sold out Black Panther tickets for at least five days straight. I finally managed to find a showing one evening with three seats for my brother, my friend, and I.
