Big Trouble in Little China

In preparation for reading Boom Studios release of Big Trouble in Little China I watched the movie for probably the hundredth time and I was instantly taken back to when I was younger…..watching this with my sister Lynda or my cousin Sean and just laughing my head off.  For this reason…..I smile at just having this comic in my hands……so no pressure right?

Suicide Risk #1

Boom Studios is another publisher outside of the big two that I tend to keep an eye on with my monthly previews scan and the latest from Mike Carey caught my eye thanks to that pretty sharp cover from Tommy Lee Edwards…..I added it to my list (along with the next few issues) and thought I’d give it a go.

I do love a good zombie infected armagideon style end of humanity farce and I’m also partial to great music. Missing out on the Amory Wars due to a particularly debilitating bout of Back Issue Buying Blue Beetle Fever I was determined not to do so on this latest title from Coheed and Cambria frontman Claudio Sanchez.
