As a part of their “15 Pre-Comic-Con Announcements” publisher BOOM! Studios teased an upcoming comic book series based on the cult classic John Carpenter film ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK. This is pretty exciting news for fans of Carpenter’s work. BOOM! currently publishes a series based John Carpenter’s BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA, which continues the story of Jack Burton beyond the action of the film. Let’s hope that BOOM!’s tale of Snake Plissken does more justice to the character and franchise than Carpenter’s own ESCAPE FROM LA. If the BTILC title is any indication, it will.
