Chapter One – Unrivaled Hospitality: The world’s leading scientists are gathering for the International Tech Symposium in Nagoya, Japan where King T’Challa is accompanied by a team of Wakandan graduate students. The Wakandan scientists are honored to discuss the merits of engineering and physics with their fellow scientists, the Takumi Masters. This gathering of great minds also attracts the scheming, Machinesmith as he crashes the symposium, causing chaos as only he can.

Summary from Goodreads.

This first issue of Soul Of A Machine, King T’Challa goes to a technology conference to help share Wakanda’s technology with the world.

This first issue was more to set the scene for what is to come in my opinion. We find out that mind-control through the use of new technology is possible thanks to the Takumi Masters, although this was never their intention for it.

Whilst the storyline was not that interesting, the artwork more than made up for it. It felt very crisp and precise, which goes with the computer storyline as computers are precise machines.

Whilst not the most interesting, the end of this first issue does leave it in a place where things should get interesting.
