Black Dynamite: Animated Series (First Look Pictures)

"Your knowledge of scientific biological transmogrification is only matched by your zest of kung-fu treachery"

With lines like that, it was no doubt Black Dynamite got 4 out of 4 spinkicks. But I didn't know we'd see our Black as Spades hero again until recently. Then Scott Sanders dropped me a line to let me know that the new animated Black Dynamite series is coming to Adult Swim in 2011. Kick ass!

Sure we're going to see a toned down version of our hero but Black Dynamite fits in perfectly. Here's some of the vitals.

First from the comic book.

Released by indie publisher Ape Entertainment with a story by Michael Jai White, Byron Minns, and myself, the one-shot Black Dynamite: Slave Island follows our hero as he seeks to put an end to a mysterious island… where an insidious 19th century legacy of The Man still exists.

Info about the animated series.

As well, we are hard at work on Black Dynamite: The Animated Series for [adult swim]. The show is Executive Produced by Carl Jones (The Boondocks) and will take BLACK DYNAMITE to a new level.
