Hitch a ride on the ‘Pork Chop Express’ with Big Trouble in Little China
You know what ol’ Jack Burton always says at a time like this?” This June, BOOM! Studios will tell you just what ol’ Jack Burton says in his continuing adventures in Big Trouble in Little China, a new, ongoing series from comics favorites Eric Powell and Brian Churilla. The cult-classic film combined ‘80s supernatural action with ‘70s kung-fu flicks, and BOOM! has the film’s original director, John Carpenter, working alongside Powell to bring that over-the-top spirit to the comic.
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!
Big Trouble in Little China #1 arrives in comic shops on June 4th. The main cover is illustrated by Eric Powell, and retailer incentive covers by Joe Quinones (whose covers for issues #1-4 will connect), Chris Weston, and Terry Dodson, will be available in limited quantities. Additionally, an ultra-limited variant illustrated by Emi Yonemura Brown featuring Jack Burton’s iconic tank top will also be available.
