This is an excellent jumping in point for those (like me) who don't know the character of Black Panther in the Marvel Universe at all. Reginald Hudlin (director of House Party) scripts a pretty decent introduction to the character. He's like Captain America but for Africa, and dresses all in black sans shield. Unlike most superheroes who are vigilantes, Black Panther is the leader of his fictional African country Wakanda which is a self sustaining nation that is far more technologically advanced than Western nations, let alone African nations (they even have a cure for cancer!).
But people want what they don't have and many have tried to invade Wakanda's borders for years. Partly because the nation is so rich and is sitting on a massive oil deposit it refuses to mine, Black Panther and his government come under fire from mercenaries and greedy plutocrats looking to exploit this isolated yet deadly nation.
Well written with lots of action, "Who is the Black Panther?" is a fine introduction to a somewhat unknown Marvel character. This edition also includes two Fantastic Four issues from 1966 where Black Panther made his first appearances.
