“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 (The Goon) and Brian Churilla (The Sixth Gun: Sons of the Gun). 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.
Big Trouble in Little China (1986) - Jack Burton (Kurt Russell) is a simple man who doesn’t believe in ghosts or magic until he’s swept into a mind-boggling adventure deep within Chinatown’s mysterious underworld. Burton’s pal, Wang Chi (Dennis Dun), is trying to rescue his kidnapped fiancée. Egg Shen (Victor Wong), an enigmatic tour-bus driver seems to know a lot about ancient Chinese magic for a simple tour-bus driver. They do battle with an outlandish array of human and inhuman adversaries under the command of Lo Pan (James Hong), a 2000-year-old evil magician who has the power to transform himself from a wheelchair-bound old man into a seven-foot-tall mystical menace.

Actors: Kurt Russell, Kim Cattrall, Dennis Dun, James Hong, Victor Wong * Director: John Carpenter * Screenwriter: David Z. Weinstein, Gary Goldman, John Carpenter and W.D. Richter.

One of my all time favs. I'm on board. : )
Aeyan - 5/8/2014, 8:39 PM
I don't know how I feel about the beast being his sidekick. That's kind of stupid.

This movie is one of my guilty pleasures.

Especially Kim Catrall and the blue-eyed Eurasian chick!!!

And just a FUN movie. Period.

Only thing that would have made this movie better for me would have been the addition of a Samo Hung fight scene.

Love the movie...but why a comic NOW?

They're like 30 years to late.
HeisenbergSaysRelax - 5/8/2014, 8:57 PM
I always picture the writers of these adaptions sitting there, going: "Oh, you're gonna turn my comics into shitty movies? Well then, I shall turn your movies into shitty comics! HA-HA!"

I bet it's some weird form of revenge.

You know what sold me on this project? That monster's Tuna hat. That's such a BTILC-ish detail.

One of the best Carpenter flicks made...but that artwork is F'n SHIT!
jimoakley666 - 5/8/2014, 9:52 PM
Brilliant. Those covers by Joe Q are great too. Saw them a while back and wondered what he was up to, the little scamp.
FlixMentallo21 - 5/8/2014, 10:00 PM
Oh man--I think I just came up with my next anime/movie mashup fancast: "Yu Yu Hakusho" and Big Trouble in Little China.
TheDesertGorilla - 5/8/2014, 10:01 PM

Fvckkin Fantastic.
BTILC is a cult classic.
Kurt Russell is great.
AztecaAguilar04 - 5/8/2014, 10:15 PM
A classic no doubt about it, Brings me back to the old days. And of course where Ed Boon got his inspiration for Rayden.
Egg - 5/8/2014, 10:20 PM
One of my All-Time Faves...but...A comic interpretation is pointless.
BboiBlack - 5/8/2014, 10:50 PM
as bad as transformers but with the clout of the cult.
Demongod20 - 5/8/2014, 10:50 PM
Big Trouble in little china. Gone are the days when Fu Man Chu's where cool.
case - 5/8/2014, 10:55 PM
Nomis - why NOT make the comic now? Better late than never!
Ceejay - 5/8/2014, 11:04 PM
That artwork is utter shite, how dare they soil the creative juices of this film with such inadequate renderings. I'm deeply offended!
Hairybacca - 5/8/2014, 11:08 PM
No....just....no.
Mercwitham0uth - 5/8/2014, 11:17 PM
Goddammit Hollywood disappointed me when they didn't make a sequel to this. This movie is a [frick]ing classic.
McGee - 5/8/2014, 11:33 PM
You're doing it backwards Hollywood. First you do the comic book then you do--HOLY SHIT!!! DEMONGOD20 JUST POSTED A PIC OF THE REAL MANDARIN!!!
GLprime2814 - 5/8/2014, 11:47 PM
Top 10 80s movie.
Dunejedi - 5/9/2014, 12:09 AM

Very good movie!!!
AsianVersionOfET - 5/9/2014, 2:24 AM
Meh, I'll just watch the movie again.

That artwork is utter shite, how dare they soil the creative juices of this film with such inadequate renderings. I'm deeply offended!


You don't like Brian Churilla's work?
I've been a fan since D.B. Cooper.

It's got a lot of fun energy to it.

mgeoff88 - 5/9/2014, 2:31 AM
I love this movie! I was wondering when they would release more information about this series.

It's a nice touch that the comic picks up right where the movie ended.

@Aeyan Lo Pan probably treated his beast servant like crap. After Jack Burton killed Lo Pan, the beast was freed and wants to serve Jack to thank him. At least, that's what I'm guessing.

If that's the case, I think that's a cool idea.

The sauce has never been more awesome...
