After having success adapting one John Carpenter film to comics with Big Trouble In Little China, it's no surprise that BOOM! Studios is going back to the well again. This time the publisher has plans for Snake Plissken. The new ongoing Escape From New York will be written by Christopher Sebela (High Crimes) with art by Diego Barreto (Irredeemable) as Plissken heads out into the world on the bring 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!
Escape from New York #1 arrives in comic shops on December 3rd with covers by Declan Shalvey (Moon Knight) (with Jordie Bellaire coloring), Tim Bradstreet (The Punisher), Riley Rossmo (Roche Limit), Jay Shaw (Evil Empire) and Alice X. Zhang (Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor).
