Q: There's hasn't been a new sidekick in years. What happened to the concept of the sidekick? -- @RedEarth18
A: I'm not sure that sidekicks are really all that in danger of extinct, but I do think you're right to say that sidekicks aren't as prominent as they used to be, and I think there's a reason for that. And a lot of it has to do with how you define the term.
As of Wednesday, there's nothing to go on but a teaser image, but it appears that Boom! Studios will be publishing a comic based in John Carpenter's 1986 movie Big Trouble in Little Chinasometime in the near future.
The image, which depicts Kurt Russell's character Jack Burton from the very recognizable chin down, is drawn by The Goon creator Eric Powell. It's accompanies by a Jack Burton line from the movie: "Everybody relax! I'm here." Check out the full image after the jump.
