BOOM! Studios will be expanding its line of comics based on licensed properties in 2014, if the publisher’s latest teaser is any indication.
Illustrated by “Goon” creator Eric Powell, the image features the body of what appears to be Jack Burton, star of “Big Trouble in Little China.” While the picture doesn’t include Burton’s head, some of Kurt Russell’s action hero locks are visible, and one of Burton’s quotes from the cult hit — “Everybody Relax! I’m Here.” — is superimposed above his chest.
Attempts to bring the movie to comics have been made several times over the years, to no avail. Most recently, Top Cow teased a comic based on the movie at Comic-Con International in 2009. The adaptation, which was to be done by Jason Badower and Evan Bleiweiss, never saw print.
