Here at the podcast we love us some John Carpenter films AND films with Kurt Russell in the lead taking names so naturally “Big Trouble in Little China” is a favorite. We got a little giddy when Boom! Studios discretely dropped this teaser image illustrated by “Goon” creator Eric Powell of what appears to be Russell’s character from the film, Jack Burton, along with one of the character’s quotes, “Everybody Relax! I’m Here.” No other information was released outside of this teaser.
What do you think? We all know comics based on licensed properties tend to be a bit hit or miss, usually more miss than not, but “Big Trouble in Little China” is such a vibrant, ridiculously over-the-top fun flick that it just may lend itself to the comic book medium rather well.
