2016 Comic Challenge 232 Escape from New York Volume #01

TITLE-Escape from New York volume 01
PUBLISHER-Boom Studios

Set right after the end of the first film,this 4 issue trade ignores the horrible sequel and gives us a worthwhile follow up to one of John Carpenter's greatest films.

Snake gets away. And makes it down to the Free State of Florida. Once down there he gets taken prisoner by the two teen age boys that somehow are in charge of Florida.

We also learn that thanks to Snake's actions in the first film the President is being impeached. So of course the Prez wants to get Snake.

The art is pretty good. With the artist making Snake look like Kurt Russell. The story feels like a true follow up to the first film. Which is something Escape from LA was lacking.

Of course with this being an ongoing series the trade ends on a cliffhanger. But I am pretty sure Snake will find a way out of this situation.

Escape from New York volume 01 gets a buy.
