The Solicitation for this issue – “From John Carpenter (director of Big Trouble in Little China, Halloween, The Thing, Escape from New York) and Anthony Burch (writer of Borderlands 2) comes the story of old man Jack Burton’s final ride in the Pork-Chop Express. The year is 2020, and hell is literally on Earth. Ching Dai, sick of relying on screw-ups like Lo Pan to do his bidding, has broken the barriers between Earth and the infinite hells, and declared himself ruler of all. Sixty-year-old Jack Burton is alone in a tiny corner of Florida with only his broken radio to talk to, until one day it manages to pick up a message. Someone is out there in the hellscape, and they know a way to stop Ching Dai.”
One of my favorite movies growing up was Big Trouble in Little China. It’s a cult classic and a movie you should watch (that is… if you haven’t done so already)!
Boom Studios has had success continuing the action/adventure filled escapades of Jack Burton as well as Snake Plissken /Escape From New York. Lots of love for Kurt Russell to go around.
Remember what my old friend Jack Burton once said, “It all in the reflexes”.
Remember what Mister S once said:
“Go out and buy this book immediately!”
Big Trouble in Little China – Old Man Jack #1 will be released on Wednesday September 20th, 2017.
