May 7,  2014 – Los Angeles, CA – “You know what ol’ Jack Burton always says at a time like this?” This June, BOOM! Studios will tell you just what ol’ Jack Burton says in his continuing adventures in BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA, a new, ongoing series from comics favorites Eric Powell (The Goon) and Brian Churilla (The Sixth Gun: Sons of the Gun). The cult-classic film combined ‘80s supernatural action with ‘70s kung-fu flicks, and BOOM! has the film’s original director, John Carpenter, working alongside Powell to bring that over-the-top spirit to the comic.

“It’s already been a rewarding journey bringing ol’ Jack Burton back for new adventures and we’re just barely getting started,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-In-Chief Matt Gagnon. “I have fond memories of watching BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA, cracking up at Jack Burton and his plight. I always thought there were so many more stories to tell with that character and the world he inhabits. So putting together the amazing team of Eric and Brian for this series, along with the guidance of John Carpenter, has been a dream come true. Now everybody can truly relax. Jack’s here.”

Jack Burton, a macho, truck-driving adventurer, finds a stowaway hiding on  his rig, The Pork Chop Express, but that soon becomes the least of his troubles. He helped his best friend Wang save his fiancée from the clutches of a demon, but now the wedding has been invaded by more evil forces with one thing on their minds—revenge against Jack Burton!

BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA #1 arrives in comic shops on June 4th with a cover price of $3.99 under Diamond order code APR140960. The main cover is illustrated by Eric Powell, and retailer incentive covers by Joe Quinones (whose covers for issues #1-4 will connect), Chris Weston (The Filth, The Invisibles), and Terry Dodson (X-Men), will be available in limited quantities. Additionally, an ultra-limited variant illustrated by Emi Yonemura Brown featuring Jack Burton’s iconic tank top will also be available. Not sure where to find your nearest comic retailer?

485: A Veritable Hit!

Don’t laugh.

Back in the stone age, when I was in high school, we had a guy in our D&D group who did this all the time.  He’d roll a d20, get some mysterious number that no one ever saw, then smack said die away in disappointment while telling us he missed.

Then, you could see the gears turning in his head as he added up all the “modifiers” in his head.  He’d pause for a moment, and then say something like, “Wait, I dunno, maybe this DID hit…17?”  It usually did.

I’m not a big fan of munchkins when role playing (and lord, are they everywhere!).  But I’m even less of a fan of cheaters.  It’s a GAME, for crying out loud!


Review, The Night Projectionist! From Studio 407

By Chuck Suffel

Many of you haven’t heard of Studio 407 yet but I think you will. Slick production with quality writing and art can’t stay unknown for very long. So without further ado I bring you….

Photobucket

The Night Projectionist
Written by Robert Heske
Art by Diego Yapur
Colors by Jorge Blanco & Jok

This is a graphic novel about …. Vampires! Dun Dun Duuuunnnnn. I know I know, another vampire book? I have to be honest, it’s really good. I read a lot of horror, which in this day and age that means a lot of zombies and A LOT of vampires. So why is this one good?

Well the first thing I noticed was the art. Diego Yapur has the ability to really scare you with his images, and I don’t scare easily.
Photobucket

The fear and horror on the some of the faces really pulls you in. This volume is full of images like that, page after page of classic disturbing horror.

Second but no less important is the story, Robert Heske has given us a new vampire story. It’s not a super-hero vampire or the “new breed” of vampire we’re so used to seeing. It’s just a very personal, very deep story, one with twists and turns. The plot opens up slowly and the more things you learn about our main characters the more things you want to know.

I’m really tempted to slip into book report mode here. There’s so much going on in this book it’s hard to describe it with out just telling you the story. If you’ve read my reviews however you know I hate doing that.

So what can I tell you of the story… Well we follow a newly turned vampire in his quest to avenge wrongs done to him and his family. The story spans from 1907 to present day. Sound familiar? This ain’t Angel. This ain’t Spike. The vampires here harken back to the old days, with classic powers like mind control and the ability to turn to mist. Even though the classic vampire mythos is used here it’s done without camp, there’s no tongue in cheek found here. Don’t fool yourself, this is a violent, frightening horror comic. Just the way we like ’em! The original four issue mini came out in February of 2009 which is long enough ago that even if you read it then you should go check it out now! This gets a four out of five and a strong Buy it recommendation!

The Night Projectionist TP

Price: $12.99
ISBN: 978193538508051299
