Escape From New York Comic Book, Finally!


One of my favorite movies growing up was John Carpenters Escape from NY. I thought the whole concept of a futuristic United States was both scary and fantastic. The best part of the film was the lead character Snake Plissken, gritty, mean , tricked by the government (they do that), but a hero none the less.
Snake has appeared in comics before to mixed reviews but there has not been a comic based on the original movie. This series takes place shortly after the events of Escape from NY. Snake has saved the President but then humiliated him in front of the world so he is again a wanted man.

Written by Christopher Sebela, art by Diego Barreto and cover by Declan Shalvey (who we recently meet at NYCC). Escape from NY is set to follow in the success of John Carpenters Big Trouble in Little China series at BOOM! Comics,

Hopefully the series will lead right into Escape from Cleveland, that was Snakes second adventure mentioned in Escape from LA but never detailed. One can always hope.

Good Luck on your Hunt!
