Blackie Blackie Brown
On a dig in the Australian outback, archaeologist Dr. Jacqueline Black unearths a mystical skull from a hidden mass grave. It talismanically transforms her into arse-kicking indigenous superhero Blackie Blackie Brown. Her mission: to track down every last descendant of the men who killed her ancestors and have her revenge. It ain’t about forgiveness. It ain’t about reconciliation. This is about Blackie Blackie Brown: The Traditional Owner of Death. The unstoppable Nakkiah Lui (Blaque Showgirls, ABC’s Black Comedy) and Declan Greene (Calpurnia Descending) team up with Barkindji, Birri-Gubba illustrator Emily Johnson and digital animation studio Oh Yeah Wow. The result is a hilarious live-action bad-arse blaxploitation superhero comic book that will have you baying for blood.
