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.

Escape from New York cover D

Back in July, BOOM! Studios announced that Snake Plissken would be back.  One of John Carpenter’s best, the 1981 sci-fi flick Escape from New York went on to have a rather bleh sequel with 1996’s Escape from L.A.  BOOM! is returning to the classic we all love with its continuing story of the action anti-hero with the eye patch in its new Escape from New York series.

Writer Christopher Sebela (Ghost, Alien vs. Predator) and artist Diego Barreto (Planet of the Apes, Irredeemable) along with cover artists Declan Shalvey, Jay Shaw, and Alice X. Shang will be telling the new tales of this loner in a future Earth’s World War III.
