Pan Fried In Print... Blaxploitation For Your Coffee Table
When I came across this magazine pic, I thought it was so cool, I had to let it shine on PLANET GRIFFIN! In Japan, the Blaxploitation era is alive and boomin'! ( Even I was amazed at how much of the era is archived and shared over there--- and don't get me started on their Jazz sets...)
Among some of the HOT memorabilia right now is this oversize mag called 'Soul of Black Movie' (literal translation)--- featuring poster pull-outs of some the classic films of the 70's heyday, from the legacy of Pam Grier to 'Coffin Ed' and 'Gravedigger Jones'--- I'm not sure if this is a one-shot or an ongoing mag (This item was up for bid on EBay), but from the looks of it, the Japanese damn sure got it right!
