That’s right. The character made famous by Kurt Russell in John Carpenter’s Escape from New York and Escape from L.A. is back. Tomorrow BOOM! Studios is releasing Escape from New York, Issue #1, a continuation of the exploits of the guy with the eye patch that everyone wants dead.
Written by Christopher Sebela (Ghost, Alien vs. Predator: Fire and Stone) with artwork by Diego Barreto (Irredeemable, Robin), Plissken is Public Enemy Number One. He’s a survivor in a post-apocalyptic ride that finds Plissken in a 1980s-inspired action world parallel to Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome.
Keep an eye out for a slew of extra variant covers for this issue.
After the break, check out a preview of Issue #1, courtesy of BOOM! Studios:
Escape from New York, Issue #1, is available tomorrow in comic book stores everywhere. And don’t forget to pick up your Snake Plissken action figures from Entertainment Earth:
