For series description and Road to NYCC 2016 recap, read on.
After you’ve saved the President’s daughter from the prison city of New York and humiliated the President, what can you possibly do for an encore? If you’re Snake Plissken, you take a leisurely (yeah, right!) tour of WWIII America – with a big enough price on your head that everyone wants you dead!
Written by Christopher Sebela and drawn by Diego Barreto, BOOM! Studios’ Escape From New York #1 picks up where the movie left off and hits comics shop shelves on December 3rd. Follow the jump for details.
This is to officially announce that yes, BOOM! Studios will be publishing ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK comics, starting in December! High Crimes and DEAD LETTERS writer Christopher Sebela will be writing, and an artist will be named later. Escape from New York is a cult classic sci-fi film from 1981 co-written and directed by John Carpenter. In the then-near future of 1997, Manhattan has been converted to a maximum security prison. When Air Force One crash lands there, ex-soldier Snake Plissken (played by Kurt Russell in the film) is given 22 hours to rescue the President of the United States and the sensitive information he’s carrying.
