Black Lightning Cold Dead Hands has been hands down one of my favorite monthly items to pull when I visit my local comic book store. Tony Isabella’s return to his classic creation shows that its possible to breathe new life into one of the classics and make it just as timely today as it was back in the day. The issue four of the six-issue miniseries, which I’m hoping gets upgraded to an ongoing, continues to follow the Cleveland hero as he attempts to figure out who is releasing science fiction level weapons onto the streets of his hometown.
Listen up ladies and gentlemen take to the streets and tell everyone you know Black Lightning is back better than ever. Today marks the series premiere of what in my not so humble opinion is going to be the CW's best entry into their superhero catalog. Created in July of 1972 by the talented Tony Isabella and Trevor Von Eeden, Jefferson Pierce doubles as a teacher and sometimes principal of Garfield Highschool and the superhero Black Lightning.
