Black Lightning/Hong Kong PHOOEY Special (2018-) #1

This reimagining of Hong Kong Phooey is a delightful blend of 70’s kung fu movies, blaxploitation films and the buddy cop genre. It’s definitely a grittier take on the character but luckily doesn’t take its self to seriously. I also was pleasantly surprised by the short Funky Phantom story at the end though how you feel about it may depend on for personal political leanings because it’s definitely a left of center look at the 2nd amendment. That being said it’s still a joy to see an oftentimes overlooked character back in the spotlight.
