Purchase your copy at Amoeba Hollywood to meet and get it signed by Carl Jones, Byron Mimms, Michael Jai White and Tommy Davidson! (More guests may be joining the party – stay tuned).

Bust out your best polyester pants suit because Black Dynamite and his crew are about to explode onto the scene in all-new Blu-ray and DVD release, “Black Dynamite Season One.” The Adult Swim release is out July 15th and features all ten 30-minute episodes from the series’ first season, along with a host of bonus content including the original pilot, a behind-the-scenes featurette and video commentaries with series creator Carl Jones (The Boondocks) and cast members.

The series’ titular character Black Dynamite (Michael Jai White) is a 1970s renaissance man with a kung-fu grip. He is a lover and a fighter who is not afraid to leap before he looks.
