The blaxploitation hero of the 2000s returns in comic book form. In this story from Mr. Dynamite/Spawn/Jax himself, Michael Jai White, as well as BD co-star Byron Minns, and BD writer Scott Sanders, the titular hero goes on the offensive against an island which still engages in slavery. In addition, there’s currently an animated spin-off in the works.
Update: If you’re in the L.A. area today, there’ll be a screening of BD, a podcast with Michael Jai White and the comic artists, and a sneak preview of the cartoon pilot at Meltdown Comics this evening. Thanks to @black_dynamite for the tip.
Update 2: An official animated spin-off on Adult Swim is now confirmed. Expect it to be out sometime next year.
