Press Release Following the acclaim and success of the Big Trouble in Little China comic, award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios is pleased to announce the December debut of a second John Carpenter film adapted to comics, Escape from New York. This new ongoing series picks up directly after the end of the cult classic film, with writer Christopher Sebela (Dead Letters, High Crimes) and artist Diego Barreto (Irredeemable) taking Snake Plissken on a tour of a country on the brink of World War III.
A female ape, Ayala, is about to be beheaded for betraying her people, then some humans barge in and wreck up the joint while some bald people telepathically talk to a kid who’s the ape’s son. Yeah, there’s a lot here I didn’t understand either, but let’s decode it together after the jump.
The finale is here! Whether or not you’ve stuck with this series in the long run, if you started it and dropped it part-way through, you ABSOLUTELY should pick this issue up. This is the perfect conclusion to the Mark Waid-penned series, ending in a way that was both unexpected yet, in retrospect, was foreshadowed in some particularly devious and meta ways.
UPDATE: PLEASE NOTE: Due to last minute scheduling conflicts, this signing has been moved to Friday at 5-6pm from the originally announced time of 3-4pm.Â Please update your schedules accordingly. Press Release EUREKA TV show co-creator Andrew Cosby and actor Ed Quinn, who played Nathan Stark, will be signing copies of BOOM!
