Season one of Adult Swim’s hit animated series Black Dynamite is making its debut on Blu-ray and DVD on July 15th. The series’ first season aired on Adult Swim during the summer of 2012 and was the top-rated show in its time slot. Now everyone can get a piece of the action with this new inaugural set.
The Blu-ray and DVD release will feature all ten 30-minute episodes from the series’ first season, the series’ original pilot, a behind-the-scenes featurette, and video commentaries with series creator Carl Jones (The Boondocks) and cast members.
