I love NYC... god knows that's true. But the West Coast has the movie business on lock, and there is no shortage of movie related special events happening out in L.A. that I would love to attend. Case in point, this magnificent motherfucking 'Black Dynamite' event:
This is all in an effort to promote the new 'Black Dynamite: Slave Island' comic book... one that I am eagerly anticipating in the mail to review (thanks Jillian!!!). You got a screening of the movie (one of my all time faves) at 6:30 PM, The recording of a live podcast at 8:00 PM, and then a comic book signing to finish it all up with a bang at 9:00 PM. In the words of director Scott Sanders:
"Chris Hardwick will lead a panel that includes Michael Jai White ("Black Dynamite", co-writer), Byron Minns ("Bullhorn", co-writer), Scott Sanders (director, co-writer), Brian Ash (comic author, writer for The Boondocks) to chat about the making of the greatest Blaxploitation comedy of all time, and its extension into the comic world. There will also be a live music performance by the film's score-master Adrian Younge and The Black Dynamite Sound Orchestra."
How F'n unbelievable does that sound? Black Dynamite himself & Bullhorn are gonna be up in this bitch!!! God damn... I wish I could get out there!!! Hey Scott, can you send Cream Corn with the helicopter for me? Please.... Grrrr. Anyway, we met Scott at last years NYC Comic Con and he was the man. He gave us a long ass interview and signed a bunch of preview comics for us (that we gave away to you guys!!!) and proved to be one cool dude. Good luck with the event guys... and if you are in the L.A. area, make this happen!!!!
All of this takes place on April 4th @ Meltdown Comics, 7522 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, Ca 90046
