Tony Isabella Speaks About DC's 'Black Lightning' Paperback
If you're the kind of person who keeps an eye on Amazon to see what paperbacks and hardcovers are coming out before they get their official solicitations, then you might have noticed that DC has a collection of the original 1977 Black Lightning series on the schedule for next spring. And, if you're the kind of person who's been keeping up with Tony Isabella, the writer who originated Black Lightning (with artistic input from Trevor von Eden, Bob Rozakis and Joe Orlando), that might be a little surprising. Isabella has had a pretty rocky relationship with DC over the past twenty years, and a big sticking point has been the lack of a reprint for either the original series or Isabella's return to the character in the mid-'90s. Now it seems like things are starting to work out. In response to the announcement of the paperback, Isabella has written about recent interactions with DC, and refers to their discussions as "a good start."
