"The baddest kung-fu cat to ever appear on screen is coming to comics so you suckers better duck! Former CIA agent, international ladies man, and sworn ass-kicking enemy of The Man? he's Black Dynamite-and he's about to walk into the most dangerous journey of his life!"
Supposedly he's a powder keg of black fury that's about to explode!
Judging by the awesome cover (and it's variants), there's a good chance he will!
I've not seen the original film which this series appears to follow on from, starring Michael Jai White (Gambol in The Dark Knight), so a quick wiki was in order to get me up to speed before diving into this spoof of Blaxploitation.
Not really knowing what to expect from the genre led to a few surprises in the language and general attitude of the characters, »

With the release of Zoe Bell’s new flick, Raze, in theaters and on Video on Demand, we are reminded of all the modern-day grindhouse films that we’ve come to enjoy over the past 14 years. The genre, named after theaters (in particular defunct burlesque theaters in New York City) that primarily showed exploitation films, plays on its low budget, niche appeal and, often times, lurid subject matter. Raze like the 9 other films on this list, keeps things bloody, raunchy and fun. (Just don’t watch these with your mother!)
Shelved for several years before finally getting released in October of last year, this flick does its best to flip the horror genre on its head. Alcohol, drugs, sex and plenty of gore come into play when a group of kids decide to spend a weekend at a remote farmhouse.
