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.

New Interactive Xenomorph Game Launches This Alien Day

Published

on

Alien Day is rapidly approaching on April 26th and today we have news that a new first-of-its-kind interactive survival game is on its way via 20th Century Fox.

The game invites players to experience the intensity and imminent threats of Alien individually, or up to three players in collaborative gameplay and is called Alien: Offworld Colony Simulator. It’s a turned-based survival game that simulates a Weyland-Yutani Space Colony in security lockdown.

Weyland-Yutani is inviting civilians to participate in an open Beta test of “The Offworld Colony Simulator” – an advanced system that simulates security breach scenarios in non-terrestrial colonies. Those that participate in the Open Beta will help teach the system’s AI to accurately simulate human behavior in the face of otherworldly dangers.

Utilizing the Amazon Alexa service, players need to collect items, solve puzzles and explore unmarked territories to successfully move through the colony, unlock sectors, and avoid capture in a Xenomorph-infested space colony.

If you can’t wait until Alien Day, get a head start with the Weyland-Yutani Career Placement Test – a multi-question aptitude test to determine if applicants have what it takes for a role at the interplanetary Weyland-Yutani organization. Complemented with a sweepstakes, the test launches for fans on April 23 at AlienUniverse.com.

The game launches exclusively on Amazon Alexa Devices & Alienuniverse.com one minute prior to Alien Day at 11:59 PM ET on April 25th.
