Super Sons / Dynomutt Special #1

Ever since Hanna-Barbera penned the new deal to let DC play in their sandbox there have been a bunch of random, odd, crossover specials, just as there was with Looney Toons before this. It’s not a bad thing, but it’s usually weird. Some of the crossovers have used iterations of the Hanna-Barbera character that are appearing in their own reboot series, Like Johnny Quest and Space Ghost from the Future Quest series. Others, like the duo of Dynomutt and Blue Falcon, are standalone reboots on their own. I’m actually a bit curious to see if this version of Blue Falcon will show up in the pages of Future Quest Presents at some point. He’s a bit dark, but would otherwise potentially fit in well.

But, back to the story at hand...

Black Lightning / Hong Kong Phooey Special #1

DC and Hanna-Barbara are back with yet another crossover special. This time they are taking us back to 1976 to bring together a character I have no recollection of before his current CW series (which I actually thought was a Netflix exclusive, just to show how much attention I’ve paid) and a character I recognize, grew up around, but also have no recollection watching or reading. This should be interesting.

So my memory may not be amazing, but my Google-Fu is decent. Black Lightning was developed by Tony Isabella, after his work on Marvel’s Luke Cage. He became DC’s second African American superhero, and their first to be featured on television. He first appeared in 1977, a year after this story takes place, which amuses me to no end...
