Escape From New York Vol. 1

Illustrated by Diego Baretto / With Jordie Bellaire
LIST PRICE $14.99

John Carpenter's classic antihero, Snake Plissken, is back!

The crime rate in the United States has risen 400 percent. After humiliating the President in front of the world and destroying America’s one chance to end World War III, Snake Plissken has become America’s Most Wanted man in a land of criminals and the insane. Everyone wants Snake dead. Luckily, Snake knows the feeling all too well. War hero. Outlaw. Renegade. Snake’s back!

After bringing the John Carpenter classic Big trouble in Little China to comics, the response has been so strong that we knew we had to bring another Carpenter classic to comics in a style and approach that does Escape From New York justice. Eisner-nominated writer Christopher Sebela (HIGH CRIMES, DEAD LETTERS) and artist Diego Barreto (IRREDEEMABLE) bring a action-packed adventure that rocks for both long-time Snake fans and newcomers.

Christopher Sebela is the Eisner-Nominated writer of High Crimes, as well as Captain Marvel, Fantastic Four, Ghost, and Dead Letters.

Diego Barreto has illustrated comics for DC Comics and BOOM!, working on titles such as Robin, Chase, and Irredeemable.
