Big Trouble in Little China Big Trouble in Mother Russia HC (2016 Boom Studios) An Illustrated Novel #1-1ST
Written by Matthew J. Elliot. Art by Elena Casagrande. Cover by Oliver Barrett.
What's to Love: For our first prose novel spinning out of the Big Trouble in Little China universe, we went to self-professed fan, movie expert, author, and RiffTrax writer/performer Matthew J. Elliot, and he wrote a pillars of heaven-shaking adventure set in Cold War Russia that was simply perfect for Jack Burton and company. Taking place days after the film ends, (and if you're following along in our comics, it's set after Jack meets the monster on his truck but before he attends Wang's wedding), you can relax: a new Jack Burton adventure is here with Big Trouble in Mother Russia!
What It Is: Ol' Jack Burton is back, and he brought some old friends, and a few old enemies along for a brand-new adventure in a brand-new setting. A lot of people want to get their hands on Jack, including the KGB, the Russian mob, and his old enemies from Big Trouble in Little China, the Wing Kong. Lost on the streets of Moscow, he can only rely on the trusty Wang Chi and the lovely Gracie Law to help him unlock a centuries-old mystery that could tear apart the fabric of reality. Can he do it? Like he told his ex-wife, it's all in the reflexes... Featuring spot illustrations by Elena Casagrande (Doctor Who).
Hardcover, 5-in. x 7-in., 192 pages, Text (with B&W Chapter Illustrations). Cover price $19.99.
