Christopher Sebela to Write Classic John Carpenter Film.
Earlier today, Boom! Studios made it official with the announcement of John Carpenter’s ‘ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK’ comic book adaptation coming this December. Christopher Sebela (Dead Letters, High Crimes) will be writing the series while an artist has yet to be announced. Two covers have been revealed, one by Tim Bradstreet and the other by Riley Rossmo.
Escape from New York is a cult classic sci-fi film from 1981 co-written and directed by John Carpenter. In the then-near future of 1997, Manhattan has been converted to a maximum security prison. When Air Force One crash lands there, ex-soldier Snake Plissken (played by Kurt Russell in the film) is given 22 hours to rescue the President of the United States and the sensitive information he’s carrying.
