Big Trouble in Little China by urban-barbarian Big Trouble in Little China by urban-barbarian
I can't tell you how happy I was while drawing this cover.  I must have watched the film Big Trouble in Little China 50 times by now!  So illustrating the cover to #2 of the Boom Studios comic book was a bit of a dream come true.  What's even cooler is that I met with director John Carpenter and his lovely wife, Sandy last year!  I could barely speak...!  Hope you dig it!

I didn't know they had a comic of one of my favorite campy movies of all time. Carpenter is one my fav producer/directors and composer of his own soundtracks.

"You ready, Jack?".... "I was born ready!"

That is without exaggeration my single most favorite movie of all time. I'd +fav this fifty times if DA would let me.

You clearly have the reflexes.

Man this is awesome. There was a time in my life when it was imposible to speak more than 30 minutes with me without hearing a quote from Jack Burton. Even today whenever I make a toast I say here's to the army and navy and the battles they have won... :D

"When some wild-eyed, eight-foot-tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head up against the barroom wall, looks you crooked in the eye and asks you if ya paid your dues, you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye, and you remember what ol' Jack Burton always says at a time like that: "Have ya paid your dues, Jack?" "Yessir, the check is in the mail.""

That movie has EVERYTHING! Once, I had a job interview in some sort of Asian thing, I donīt know what it was, I think there were offices; and the entrance looked just like Lo-Panīs temple. Fun stuff.

I used to have nightmares about that sewer-monster when I was a kid. I, like you, have watched this thing a ridiculous amount of times by now and in retrospect; sewer-monster... not so scary *grins*

"Okay. You people sit tight, hold the fort and keep the home fires burning. And if we're not back by dawn... call the president." Such a great character from a very influential film. Also you are lucky to have met Mr. Carpenter as well :) Excellent work!
