This could be amazing. Jack Burton and Snake “I thought he was dead” Plissken are set to meet up in a new Big Trouble in Little China/Escape from New York crossover comic from Boom! Studios.

It is written by Greg Pak and illustrated by Daniel Bayliss and the six-part series debuts this October.

The story sees big-mouthed truck driver Jack Burton (played by Kurt Russell in 1986’s Big Trouble in Little China) transported to the dystopian future of 1997, where he meets his taciturn, eyepatch-sporting doppelgänger Snake Plissken (also played by Kurt Russell in 1981’s Escape from New York).

John Carpenter, who directed both films, has given his blessing to the crossover. Will we see Jack and Snake meet up with MacReady to battle The Thing at some point?

Boom! Studios is also going to publish two non-fiction books this year by Tara Bennett and Paul Terry to mark the 30th anniversary of Big Trouble in Little China. The first, The Official Making of Big Trouble in Little China, arrives in stores this August, while the second, The Art of Big Trouble in Little China, is out in November.
