“Escape from New York” & “Big Trouble In Little China” to Crossover in Comics

There’s going to be double the dose of Kurt Russell in comics this fall. BOOM! Studios is reviving “Big Trouble in Little China” and “Escape from New York” for a six-issue crossover event, launching in October from writer Greg Pak and artist Daniel Bayliss.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the crossover sees “…big-mouthed truck driver Jack Burton (played by Kurt Russell in 1986’s kung fu extravaganza ‘Big Trouble in Little China’) transported to the dystopian future of 1997, where he meets his taciturn, eyepatch-sporting doppelgänger Snake Plissken (also played by Kurt Russell in 1981’s science fiction classic ‘Escape from New York’).”

The two properties — which originated as John Carpenter-directed films from the ’80s — recently had comic book adaptations from BOOM! that wrapped up earlier this year. The new crossover sees both franchise’s return to print with the blessing of Carpenter.
