Have you ever thought to yourself, “I need more Jack Burton in my life?” Well, if so, then your prayers have been answered!
It was just recently announced that in September, BOOM! Studios will launch a four-part comic series called Big Trouble In Little China: Old Man Jack. The series, co-written by John Carpenter himself, will revolve around Jack Burton’s “final ride in the Pork-Chop Express.”
Here’s the plot synopsis:
“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.”
This sounds absolutely amazing! I’ve been a huge fan of Big Trouble in Little China for a very long time. Now, we finally get our very own sequel to Jack Burton’s adventure. What are your thoughts on this exciting news? Will you be reading the comic?
