I was a huge boxing fan at one point in my life so I guess I am what you would call a “retro” boxing fan. I watched all of the Ali / Foreman / Norton bouts during the 1970’s. Followed Sugar Ray Leonard from the Olympics through all of his title bouts in the 1980’s. And of course there’s Mike Tyson. I followed him both in and out of the ring into the 1990’s. I have to admit that after Tyson boxing lost it’s appeal for me. After all of Tyson’s antics he also fell off my radar, until recently.
Because we are a museum and we clearly love poster and pop art, just had to share some of the really cool artwork that the Black Dynamite folks have created for their animated cartoon. NOW THIS IS SOME FUNKY STUFF!!!
The Black Dynamite Animated Series will finally premiere on July 15 at 11:30 on Adult Swim. I say finally because I attended a session at NY Comic Con, a couple of years ago, where the series was announced. I got my copy of the Black Dynamite comic book at the same time. I have been waiting for this series to air every since…
