Do you like box office flops from te 1980s that become huge cult hits? Sure, we all do, and today is your lucky day! The find folks at Boom! Studios have teamed up with John Carpenter to bring back Jack Burton. We join him in “retirement” in Florida. Seems like things are going well for Old Man Jack. He may have helped release an eastern demon onto the planet, but at least he is safe. In Florida, he has everything he needs: bookstores, food, beverages, and a wall of fire. Wait, a wall of fire? Jack says to just ignore it and I think he may be on to something.
It is the year 2020, and Jack Burton is trying to take things easy, but this former truckdriver turned hero is being called back into duty. Now he has to make a tough choice… seems the choice was not as tough as I thought it would be. Well as long as Jack does not fall into any traps. *face palm* Seems that some things never change. This comic is poised to be a real blast from the past. Carpenter knows how to write a story and reminds us on these pages. There is action in almost every panel and humor to spare. The art is great and it is obvious that Carpenter has a lot of control over what goes in. You can hear Kurt Russell’s voice coming through the page. Now if we can just get a beautiful, green-eyed woman in here!
