Have I mentioned how much I love David Walker and Dietrich Smith's Shaft comics for Dynamite?
Well, let's make it official--I love the living hell out of them.
And the beauty part is, in the middle of gritty 1970s urban detective stories, there's usually some pretty funny laughs.
Tired of getting shot at and beat up and wading waist-deep into moral quagmires, John Shaft has decided to take an "easy" case, a payday without a lot of work or danger: he's serving as a "consultant" on blaxploitation flick about a gritty urban private detective called "Black Dick."
[SPOILER ALERT: The job turns out to be neither easy nor without danger.]
Anyway, Shaft is just standing around watching them make the magic...
[SPOILER ALERT: He's probably not going to get paid].
But that scene brings us some unexpected grammatical and poetical complexities:
Anyway, read Shaft. It's good $&#^, you jive-@$$ mother%*&$@!!
