As announced on Saturday at SDCC, I’ll be writing the ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK comic, coming out this December. More details (like who’s drawing it, who’s coloring it, who’s lettering it and what exactly it is all about) are coming soon.
I’ve been a John Carpenter fan since I was a little kid hiding his eyes from heavily edited cuts of THE FOG on TV. I say with no hesitation that he’s one of my most important filmmakers and his films have shaped me and my view of movies. So it goes without saying that I’m excited beyond the telling to be involved in this book. To have a hand in figuring out what happened to Snake Plissken after the events of the first film? That’s some sort of insane fever dream I’m trying with all my might not to wake up from.
