Black Dynamite #1 is the most entertaining comic that I’ve read in a long, long time.
Having never seen the film that this is based on, I had absolutely NO idea what to expect. But, the cover looked cool and I love anything that’s set in the ’70s, so I figured I’d give it a try. The story and dialogue that writer Brian Ash came up with had me actually chuckling out loud to myself. Not only that, but it had revitted to what was on the next page. And it just kept getting more and more outrageous! There’s several scenes that, even for a comic book, will leave you stunned in the “Oh my God, I can’t believe he did that!” vein. GREAT beginning to a story and a really great introduction to anyone who isn’t familiar with the character.

This project has not been formally announced yet, but yesterday, finished pages from a Black Dynamite comic hit the internet.
For those not in the know, Black Dynamite is the mock blaxploitation, or moxploitation, film about a badass federal agent who wages war against “The Man” after his brother dies from overdosing on “smack.” Michael Jai White (Spawn, The Dark Knight) is the lead character Black Dynamite.
I LOVED the movie and thought that it was a perfect homage to the 70’s blaxploitation films and a witty satire at the same time. I am eagerly awaiting a formal announcement on this comic from Ape Entertainment. I will buy the singles and the trade. I want this hardcover on my shelf. I can’t wait to read Black Dynamite’s battles against “The Man” on a monthly basis.
