BOOM! Studios teased us with the above image last week before the San Diego Comic Con, but on the last day, the publisher announced it was in fact bringing the classic movie to comic book form.

Escape from New York is a cult classic sci-fi film from 1981 co-written and directed by John Carpenter. In the then-near future of 1997, Manhattan has been converted to a maximum security prison. When Air Force One crash lands there, ex-soldier Snake Plissken (played by Kurt Russell in the film) is given 22 hours to rescue the President of the United States and the sensitive information he’s carrying.
