Fans of the film will feel right at home with the comic, states Ape Entertainment founder and co-publisher Brent E. Erwin. It has all of the elements that made the movie a cultural phenomenon, and Black Dynamite himself is still as much of a bad dude on the page as he is on the screen.Comic news courtesy of Ape Entertainment.
Directed by Scott Sanders, the film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2009 and stars Michael Jai White as Black Dynamite, a gun-toting, nunchuck-wielding, ladies man willing to fight all the way from the blood-soaked city streets to the hallowed halls of the Honky House.
Although written for film, Black Dynamite was always meant to move beyond the camera, continues Sanders. As a medium, comic books seemed like such a logical step in Black Dynamite's development as a character, and what better way to start than having him bring down the infamous Slave Island.
Black Dynamite: Slave Island is based on a story by Michael Jai White, Byron Minns and Scott Sanders. Written by Brian Ash with pencils by Jun Lofamia, the 48-page one-shot is due in stores in early 2011.
