Big-Trouble-In-Little-China-1Big Trouble In Little China #1
Boom! Studios

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 mashed together ’80s action and supernatural fantasy movies with ’70s kung-fu flicks. This is the first time any new BIG TROUBLE stories have been told, and we have the film’s original directer, John Carpenter, working with Eric Powell (THE GOON) on the story. You can’t beat that!

Eric Powell is a huge fan of BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA, so the sense of humor and over-the-top action he brings to THE GOON will be all over this book. Plus, Brian Churilla’s (THE SIXTH GUN) art on this perfectly captures the outrageous world of BIG TROUBLE.

Set in the continuity of that earlier team-up, Batman, The Green Hornet, Robin and Kato must go up against a very different General (formerly Colonel) Gumm.

What crime could be so deadly as to force these rivals to put aside their differences and join forces again? And what surprise does Gumm have up his sticky sleeve? Co-published with Dynamite Entertainment.
