Boom’s ‘Big Trouble In Little China’ #1 Gets Covers By Powell, Quinones, Weston, Dodson And Yonemura Brown
The last we heard about Boom! Studios‘ new Big Trouble In Little China comic was back in February, when the publisher wasn’t revealing much more than an Eric Powell-drawn teaser image that didn’t even show Jack Burton’s face.
Now, Boom is showing off a lot more in advance of the first issue’s June release. Namely, a slew of covers by Powell, Joe Quinones, Chris Weston, Terry Dodson and Emi Yonemura Brown. Check them all out after the jump!
There’s certainly no more question regarding whether Jack Burton will look like Kurt Russell in the comic. He very clearly will.
Powell (The Goon) and Brian Churilla (The Secret History of D.B. Cooper) will be the regular creative team on the book, though Boom says they’ll be getting some input from the director of the original movie, John Carpenter.
Here’s how Boom described the first issue:
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!
So it’ll seemingly be a comics sequel to the movie. The first issue will retail for $3.99 and hits comic shops June 4.
