Christopher Sebela Takes Snake Plissken Nationwide with John Carpenter’s Escape from New York
Following the acclaim and success of the Big Trouble in Little China comic, BOOM! Studios is getting ready for the December debut of a second John Carpenter film adapted to comics, Escape from New York. This new ongoing series picks up directly after the end of the cult classic film, with writer Christopher Sebela and artist Diego Barreto taking Snake Plissken on a tour of a country on the brink of World War III.
In the Escape from New York comic, the crime rate in the United States has risen 400 percent. After humiliating the President in front of the world and destroying America’s one chance to end World War III, Snake Plissken has become America’s Most Wanted man in a land of criminals and the insane. Everyone wants Snake dead. Luckily, Snake knows the feeling all too well. War hero. Outlaw. Renegade. Snake’s back!
