Black Lightning: Brick City Blues

Finished Reading: Black Lightning: Brick City Blues by Tony Isabella • Eddy Newell


Just a short distance away from downtown’s gleaming skyscrapers, gourmet restaurants and trendy boutiques exists a second and largely forgotten neighborhood. Brick City is the home of people who have nothing to hope for. The derelict community represents the end of everyone’s broken dreams.

Drugs, poverty and despair have strangled Brick City for years, but now a savior has arrived. By day, Jefferson Pierce is educating and inspiring kids at Carver High School, and at night—as Black Lightning—he’s torching gang houses and scorching scofflaws. A major change is coming to Brick City and Black Lightning is the dork for the revolution. 

BLACK LIGHTNING: BRICK CITY BLUES features the creative talents of industry legends Tony Isabella and Eddy Newell. This volume collects the complete mid-90s return of BLACK LIGHTNING (issues #1-13) along with a supplemental short story called “‘Twas the Night Before Kwanzaa” from DCU HOLIDAY BASH II.
