BOOM! Studios will be releasing a brand new comic book series titled Big Trouble in Little China: Old Man Jack, set in the year of 2020. Dark Universe want to thank Screen Rant for the heads up on this, we can’t wait to get our hands on a copy and have a good read through. Head on down to check out one of the first issue covers!
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.”
Take a look at the cool cover artwork for issue #1 below, which will also come in multiple variants this September!
