BOOM! Studios has announced that we’ll soon see a crossover of two of their ongoing comic book series: Big Trouble In Little China and Escape From New York.
The comics company will release the 6-issue limited crossover miniseries, which will see Little China‘s Jack Burton meets Escape‘s Snake Plissken, this October.
Check out the covers for issue #1, with art by Daniel Bayliss, here below.
Greg Pak will write with miniseries, with Daniel Bayliss providing the art.
Both comic book series are overseen and co-written by John Carpenter, the man behind the movie versions, and see the characters that were portrayed on the big screen by actor Kurt Russell. The miniseries will mark the first time these two Carpenter-created characters have appeared together in any format.
This one is definitely one to look out for!
