Black Lightning Interview

Over at Broken Frontier, I interviewed Black Lightning. Not really, but I did fire some questions at Jen Van Meter, the writer of Black Lightning’s Year one mini-series due out from DC on January 7. I’ve always had a place in my heart for the bro with the ‘fro and it’s great to see Jefferson Pierce is now sporting a cool new costume while hanging out with his Justice League buddies. Now you can see how he went from Olympian to teacher to electric superhero.

While I’m on the topic, I heard about a skit that Saturday Night Live did back in 1993 when the Death of Superman came out, starring Sinbad as Black Lightning. I haven’t been able to find it on YouTube, but I finally saw it at this blog. The cast star as various Marvel and DC characters (including Rob Schneider as Jimmy Olsen and Adam Sandler as The Flash) at Superman’s funeral. It’s pretty amusing, I gotta say.
