“After bringing back Jack Burton, we knew we had to revive Snake Plissken,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “The new stories we have in mind for Snake are going to really excite longtime fans, and those who have never seen the film will be able to jump right in with America’s Most Wanted man. It’s a great time to be a John Carpenter fan!”

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!
