What’s to Love: Big Trouble in Little China is one of our favorite cult-classic films because it mashed together ’80s action and supernatural fantasy movies with ’70s kung-fu flicks. This is the first time any new Big Trouble stories have been officially told, and we have the film’s original director, John Carpenter, working with Eric Powell (The Goon) on the story, with Brian Churilla (Secret History of D.B. Cooper) on art.
What It Is: Jack Burton, a macho, truck-driving adventurer, shook the pillars of Heaven when he defeated the evil sorcerer Lo Pan. He even helped his best friend Wang save his fiancée from the sorcerer’s clutches. Now Wang’s wedding has been invaded by evil forces with one thing on their minds—revenge against Jack Burton! Collects issues #1-4 of the critically acclaimed series USA Today calls one of “2014’s best of the best.”
