Boom! Studios Causes Some Big Trouble in Little ChinaLet me say this… anytime John Carpenter wants to take another ride on the old Pork Chop Express we’ll be there with bells on! Same goes for you? Then Boom! Studios has got something you NEED to hear about!

From the Press Release
“You know what ol’ Jack Burton always says at a time like this?” This June, BOOM! Studios will tell you just what ol’ Jack Burton says in his continuing adventures in BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA, a new, ongoing series from comics favorites Eric Powell (The Goon) and Brian Churilla (The Sixth Gun: Sons of the Gun). The cult-classic film combined ‘80s supernatural action with ‘70s kung-fu flicks, and BOOM! has the film’s original director, John Carpenter, working alongside Powell to bring that over-the-top spirit to the comic.

“It’s already been a rewarding journey bringing ol’ Jack Burton back for new adventures and we’re just barely getting started,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-In-Chief Matt Gagnon. “I have fond memories of watching BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA, cracking up at Jack Burton and his plight. I always thought there were so many more stories to tell with that character and the world he inhabits. So putting together the amazing team of Eric and Brian for this series, along with the guidance of John Carpenter, has been a dream come true. Now everybody can truly relax. Jack’s here.”

Jack Burton, a macho, truck-driving adventurer, finds a stowaway hiding on his rig, The Pork Chop Express, but that soon becomes the least of his troubles. He helped his best friend Wang save his fiancée from the clutches of a demon, but now the wedding has been invaded by more evil forces with one thing on their minds—revenge against Jack Burton!

BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA #1 arrives in comic shops on June 4th with a cover price of $3.99 under Diamond order code APR140960. The main cover is illustrated by Eric Powell, and retailer incentive covers by Joe Quinones (whose covers for issues #1-4 will connect), Chris Weston (The Filth, The Invisibles), and Terry Dodson (X-Men), will be available in limited quantities. Additionally, an ultra-limited variant illustrated by Emi Yonemura Brown featuring Jack Burton’s iconic tank top will also be available.

    Big Trouble in Little China exchanges places with Escape from New York as my favorite movie of all-time every so often…LOVE IT!

    As a matter of fact, the Chinese Wildman tanktop is going to be my next tattoo, once I finally get around to it…

    I’m not a comic fan, but I’ll buy these, just for my collection.
